NDC Status

Iran has not yet signed the Paris Agreement. Therefore, the country has not submitted an NDC.

In the meantime, through the support of Climate Promise, the country has developed:

  • a National Smart Emission Inventory System and made it operational;
  • a preliminary version of its National Climate Finance Strategy;
  • national guidelines for its GHG emission inventory, which was approved by government;
  • an economic impact assessment of the global climate response measures on the Iran economy.
The Climate Promise is being delivered in collaboration with key partners. Thanks to our partners in Iran:
