Moldova commits to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70 per cent in 2030

Moldova submitted the updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC2) to the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), becoming the fourth country in the world to achieve this result. 

“Through the NDC2, we have increased our ambition to unconditionally reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70 per cent below its 1990 level in 2030, instead of 64-67 per cent as committed in NDC1,” noted Ion Perju, Minister of Agriculture, Regional Development and the Environment.

According to the Minister, if the country will receive technical, financial and technological support from the international community (like the transfer of environmentally friendly and climate-efficient technologies), the conditional reduction level of greenhouse gas emissions could be up to 88 per cent as compared to the level of the reference year.

A further advance in medium- and long-term adaptation planning is to reach a sustainable social and economic development resilient to the impact of climate change by establishing a strong enabling environment for a coherent and effective adaptive action with mitigation benefits, integrating climate risk into investment decision-making and business planning while remaining socially inclusive and sensitive to gender impacts of climate change.
