Armenia approves updated 2021-2030 Nationally Determined Contributions developed under EU4Climate project

May 5, 2021

On 22 April, the government of Armenia approved the country’s updated 2021-2030 Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) under the Paris Agreement. The EU-funded EU4Climate project, implemented by the United Nations Development Programme, has supported the Ministry of Environment in developing the document.

The NDC sets Armenia the 2030 target of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40% compared with 1990 levels.

The Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) submitted in 2015, became the country’s first NDC for the period 2015-2050, after the ratification of Paris Agreement in 2017. With the updated document, Armenia aligns its NDC implementation periods with most countries, including the EU’s member states, adopting a ten-year NDC implementation timeframe of 2021-2030. Its key component is the enhanced transparency and accountability framework for tracking the progress on implementation of the country’s commitments under the Paris Agreement.
