NDC Status

Turkmenistan submitted its revised NDC in January 2023.

Key highlights from the NDC
  • Turkmenistan’s revised NDC commits to an unconditional 20% reduction in emissions by 2030, compared to 2010 levels, under a business-as-usual scenario.
  • The main sectors where the country plans to reduce emissions are energy, transportation, agriculture, industrial processes and product use, and waste.
  • To reach these targets, Turkmenistan will use its own financial resources, but requires international technical support to develop legislation and regulations and implement actions to reduce emissions. 
  • Adaptation priorities are also covered in the revised NDC, with a focus on health, agriculture, water, soil and land, forestry, and ecosystems.
  • The country plans to develop a unified methodology for assessing climate risks and developing adaptation plans at different levels.
