NDC Status

Paraguay submitted its revised NDC in July 2021.

Key highlights from the NDC
  • Paraguay maintained the same level of mitigation ambition, with a 10% unconditional greenhouse gases (GHG) reduction target, and increased by 10% the conditional GHG reduction target by 2030 compared to the business as usual scenario.
  • The GHG projection model and methodology was updated which has not linked the reduction target with absolute numbers (unconditional target of not exceeding 92,287 GgCO2eq by 2030; and a conditional target of not exceeding 82,033.6 GgCO2eq by 2030)
  • Its updated NDC elaborates an adaptation component in the form of an adaptation communication.
  • It also provides much more information about the NDC preparation and implementation processes, including cross-cutting considerations, means of implementation, and the monitoring and evaluation of progress.
