Tonga: Short Way to Go

On December 09, 2020, Tonga submitted its updated NDC.

The 2020 NDC advances in defining an absolute energy emissions reduction target (13% of emissions by 2030 compared to 2006). It also presents quantifiable adaptation objectives and describes an inclusive and participatory process for the NDC design.

According to the Checklist for the NDCs We Want and taking and into account that Tonga is a vulnerable upper-middle income country with a negligible contribution to global emissions and low per capita emissions, we consider that the 2020 NDC has a Short Way to Go to become the NDC We Want.
