Algeria submits its INDC

- Advertisment -

The People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria has submitted its new climate action plan to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) committing to 7-22% emissions reduction by 2030.

Algeria becomes the 8th African country after Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Benin, Kenya, Ethiopia, Morocco and Gabon.

This comes at a time when parties have converged in Bonn to conclude on the agreement text ahead of the Paris Climate Conference.

The INDC states that Algeria’s climate action will be realized within the cooperation framework of North-South, South-South, its bilateral partners and Multilateral partners.

The INDC mainly covers the areas of energy, forestry, housing, transport, industry and waste. It is based on national programs including renewable energy and energy efficiency, reflecting its determination to continue its efforts against the negative effects of climate change.

The climate action reflects the Algeria’s National Climate Plan which aims at strengthening the mobilization of water resources, the fight against floods, coastal protection, the fight against drought and desertification and increasing the resilience of ecosystems and agriculture, and climate change.

The INDC document states that Algeria aims to create and host a world forum on renewable energies that will be the appropriate framework for dialogue and consultation between policy makers, employers’ organizations and civil society.

This Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) comes well in advance of a new universal climate change agreement which will be reached at the UN climate conference in Paris, in December this year.

This INDC and all others submitted by countries are available on the UNFCCC website here. Including Algeria, 58 parties to the UNFCCC have formally submitted their INDCs. The UNFCCC secretariat provides relevant background data for DRC in the PDF below.

The Paris agreement will come into effect in 2020, empowering all countries to act to prevent average global temperatures rising above 2 degrees Celsius and to reap the many opportunities that arise from a necessary global transformation to clean and sustainable development.

UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres is encouraging countries to come forward with their INDCs as soon as they are able, underlining their commitment and support towards this successful outcome in Paris. Governments agreed to submit their INDCs in advance of Paris.

Countries have agreed that there will be no back-tracking in these national climate plans, meaning that the level of ambition to reduce emissions will increase over time.
