Timor-Leste submitted its first updated NDC in November 2022.
Key highlights from the NDC
- Timor-Leste’s updated NDC confirms the direction and priorities set out under its INDC while providing additional details and further specifying the different commitments and initiatives.
- The updated NDC recasts mainly four commitment areas: 1. climate risk governance; 2. nature-positive growth and transition; 3. low carbon development; and 4. climate change adaptation and resilience building.
- For mitigation, it maintains the original stance, refraining from setting a quantified emissions reduction target.
- It also mentions that a new reference level of baseline emissions will be established once the GHG inventory is formally established.
- The updated NDC includes the National Adaptation Plan, which provides the strategic framework for national adaptation priorities and implementation arrangements.
- It also commits to accelerating existing and new land tenure reform efforts over the 2021-2025 period in order to improve the enabling environment for nature-based solutions.
The Climate Promise is being delivered in collaboration with key partners. Thanks to our partners in Timor-Leste:
