What we are doing

Eswatini aims to presents its revised, second Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) by reaffirming the country’s commitment to fighting climate change. The country intends to communicate that climate resilient, sustainable and equitable growth as its priority for this decade while taking into cognizance the need for progressive targets to respond to the global commitment for enhanced ambitions to meet the Paris Agreement’s goals. The goal of the revision is to align and harmonize ESwatini's NDC with other relevant regional and global processes to promote policy coherence, e.g. the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction, the Sustainable Development Goals, Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, United Nations Convention on the Elimination of all Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and post COVID-19 recovery. The second NDC of Eswatini discusses climate change mitigation and adaptation of strategies that addresses the challenges posed by the climate change as well as contributes to the Eswatini’s economic recovery and social development, relevant for both national and subnational level.
