Thailand: Some Way to Go

On October 26, 2020, Thailand submitted its Updated NDC to the UNFCC.

Thailand’s NDC does not enhance ambition of mitigation targets, which remain unchanged. It presents an Adaptation Component with clear objectives and makes generic mentions of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Nature-based Solutions. Public participation in the NDC update is also mentioned.

Considering that Thailand is a small emitter and highly vulnerable middle-income country, our analysis concludes that the updated NDC has Some Way to Go to become the NDC We Want, according to the WWF Checklist.
