NDC or Nationally determined contributions are crucial to the Paris Agreement and the achievement of these long-term goals (NDCs). NDCs are pledges made by countries to reduce national emissions and adapt to climate change.

By October 12, 2021, 140 countries had submitted a new or amended NDC, representing approximately 70% of Paris Agreement signatories and 57% of world emissions. The Government of Bangladesh submitted its updated nationally determined contribution (NDC) to the UNFCCC on December 31, 2020.

Md. Shahab Uddin, Minister of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC) Bangladesh, said, “The updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) of Bangladesh’s or the carbon emissions plan in tackling climate change is a role model in the world.

It will support the global initiative to limit global warming to 1.5-2 degrees Celsius, same like the pre-industrial level.”

He stated this while attending a “Bangladesh’s updated NDC 2021 dissemination” program organized by the MoEFCC at the Bangabandhu International Conference Center.

“By 2030, Bangladesh’s own capacity and cooperation with the developed world will reduce the total carbon emissions by 21.85 percent.

In addition, several mitigation programs have been formulated to help reduce the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. The implementation of our NDC will be done through cooperation from all the concerned Ministries, Divisions, Departments, Agencies or Government-Private Agencies. Besides, The MoEFCC will provide all necessary assistance and coordination in this regard,” the Minister added.

“Under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Bangladesh has undertaken Intended Nationally Determined contribution (INDC) to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement (2015) to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change,” the environment ministry further said.

The Government of Bangladesh has already included various policy-making documents, including Perspective Plan and Five-Year Plan, in line with the country’s development process, to mitigate the effects of climate change and adapt to it.
