On December 29, 2020, The Dominican Republic submitted its updated NDC.
The Dominican Republic has enhanced its mitigation target from 25% to 27 emissions reductions by 2030 relative to business as usual. The NDC presents 46 mitigation and 37 adaptation options, resulting from a strong participatory process. It presents linkages with SDGs, measurable Nature-based Solutions, a robust and transparent system to track implementation as well as the amounts needed for its implementation, both for adaptation and mitigation.
According to the Checklist for the NDCs We Want and taking and into account that DR is a vulnerable upper-middle income country with relatively low responsibility (around 0.07% of global emissions), we consider that the 2020 NDC is an NDC We Want.
