Emissions reduction target by 2030
(compared to 2010 levels)The highest emissions reduction target, conditional or unconditional, included in the country’s latest NDC.
Grenada submitted its second NDC in November 2020.
Key highlights from the NDC
- In its updated NDC, Grenada confirms the same emission reduction target as the first one (a 40% reduction of the 2010 emissions levels by 2030) and commits to communicate any additional commitments via its Biennial Transparency Report.
- The country included mitigation co-benefits from the National Adaptation Plan (namely in the forestry and water sectors), as well as F-gases and a new sector (Industrial Processes and Product Use). It also considers new areas such as women, children and youth, disaster risk reduction, health, and loss and damage.
- This new NDC highlights linkages to the Sustainable Development Goals, Aichi Targets and Green Recovery in light of COVID-19.
- It was facilitated through extensive consultations with local stakeholders across a variety of sectors. However, notably, it doesn’t elaborate on an adaptation component.
