Mongolia: Some Way to Go

Mongolia’s updated NDC was submitted on October 13, 2020. There has been clear progress on defining adaptation measures and the mitigation targets have been increased, although it’s not clear to which extent due to methodological changes. The NDC lacks clear information on finance commitments, participation processes, climate governance structures and a transparent national system to track implementation.
