Timor-Leste submitted its first NDC in August 2017. The country is working on enhancing this NDC.
Key highlights from the NDC
- In its updated NDC in progress, Timor-Leste looks to increase its targets. Its focus is on further expanding the National Adaptation Plan (NAP), which could limit a potential raise in mitigation.
- The revision of the NDC has been delayed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which led to extension of the State of Emergency, and by lockdown/health fencing.
- The government has approved the National Climate Change Policy and NAP.
- Timor-Leste has completed its Second National Communication (including greenhouse gas inventory datasets, adaptation plan, and vulnerability assessment). The NAP, which was approved, will be reflected in the updated NDC.
