Cuba: Some Way to Go

Cuba submitted their updated NDC to the UNFCCC on September 17, 2020.

The country has advanced in its mitigation goals for the sectors of energy, transport and AFOLU. The NDC also counts with an adaptation component with sectoral policies. However, it lacks an overall mitigation target and information about planning processes and governance structures for its implementation and a national and transparent system to track progress.

According to the Checklist for the #NDCsWeWant and taking into account its low emissions profile, our analysis concludes that the Cuban NDC has some way to go to become the NDC We Want.
