NDC Status 

Gabon submitted its first NDC in November 2016.

According to the latest in-depth studies conducted as part of the implementation of the NDC, Gabon, far from being a major emitter, is one of the countries with the highest carbon sequestration rates in the world. Gabon will therefore develop an alternative strategy document to leverage its contribution to greenhouse gas emissions reduction, rather than submitting a revised NDC.

UNDP is supporting the country in conducting studies and developing sectoral strategies in the areas of energy, water, health, gender and youth. UNDP also helps assess the costs and opportunities for investment in the environment and resource management sectors in Gabon, with focus on forestry and energy, and the development of green agricultural value chains.

The Climate Promise is being delivered in collaboration with key partners. Thanks to our partners in Gabon:
