NDC Status

Uganda submitted its updated NDC in September 2022.

Key highlights from the NDC
  • Uganda has submitted a full updated NDC after its interim submission in 2021. 
  • Through its updated NDC, Uganda commits to reducing its net greenhouse gas emissions by 24.7% below business as usual levels by 2030, totaling an absolute reduction of 36.75 MtCO2e, including from key sectors such as Energy, Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU), Industrial Processes and Product Use (IPPU), and Transport and Waste.
  • This commitment is stronger compared to the country's first NDC, wich had set a target of 22% reduction and covered only the energy, forestry and wetland sectors.  
  • The adaptation component has been strengthened to expand priority sectors.
