Ukraine submitted its revised NDC in July 2021.
The revision of the NDC was supported by the European Union (EU) through awareness-raising events organized under the EU4Climate initiative. Funded by the EU and implemented by UNDP, EU4Climate supports six countries in the Eastern Partnership implement the Paris Agreement and improve climate policies and legislation. In Ukraine, EU4Climate is now providing support with preparing the NDC Implementation Action Plan and the NDC Financial Strategy.
Key highlights from the NDC
- Ukraine’s revised NDC raises its emissions reduction target to 65% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels.
- The revised NDC provides limited information on adaptation, but the country aims to establish a baseline for adaptation and resilience measures by 2030.
- The country is looking to set more ambitious mitigation and adaptation targets with a focus on land use, land-use change, forestry, and transportation.
- Gender equality issues are a core component of the revised NDC.
