Kenya NDC Summary
Kenya is committed to reduce its emissions by 30% by 2030 (i.e. 143 Mt CO2e) relative to a business-as-usual (BAU) scenario (base year 2010). Its aim to reduce emissions covers all sectors: Energy, Transport, Industrial Process, Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use and Waste sector.
Kenya’s emissions have increased substantially between 1995-2010 and this trend is likely to continue as the country strives to become an industrialised middle income country in the near future.
The Urban Pathways project will build on linkages in urban energy, mobility and waste management within the Nairobi Integrated Urban Development Master Plan and will develop implementation opportunities in the energy, mobility and waste sectors in Kiambu Country and Kawangware (surrounding Nairobi) to foster integrated policy and planning.
Brazil NDC Summary
Brazil faces several challenges regarding poverty eradication, education, public health, employment, housing, infrastructure and energy access. Brazil's current efforts in the global effort against climate change represent one of the largest undertakings by any single country to date, having reduced its emissions by 41% in 2012 in relation to 2005 levels. Brazil's INDC corresponds to an estimated reduction of 66% in terms of greenhouse gas emissions per unit of GDP (emissions intensity) in 2025 and of 75% in terms of emissions intensity in 2030, both in relation to 2005.
The partner city Belo Horizonte is committed to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in its Municipal Plan on which this project will build on with a focus on urban mobility, sewerage, energy, sustainable procurement sectors and the Urban Pathways project will help delivering on the promises.
Vietnam NDC Summary
GHG emissions for 2010 for Viet Nam had been measured at 246.8 MtCO2e. Projections indicate a rise for 2020 to 474.1 MtCO2e and up to 787.4 Mt CO2e in a business-as-usual (BAU) scenario (base year 2010) till 2030. Most of the emissions are related to the energy sector with 141.1 Mt CO2e in 2010, 88.3 Mt CO2e for agriculture and 15.4 Mt CO2e from the waste sector. Viet Nam is committed to reduce its emissions by 8% (unconditionally) by 2030 compared to a business-as-usual (BAU) scenario.
With international support, through bilateral and multilateral cooperation the emission reduction by 2030 could be as high as 25% (conditionally).
The implementation projects developed in the Urban Pathways project will build on the Hanoi Capital Master Plan, the Urban Development Strategy for Vietnam Cities System and sectoral plans for the city.
India NDC Summary
India is attempting to work towards low carbon emission pathway while endeavoring to meet all the developmental challenges the country faces in the current situation. Through the INDC submission, India intends to reduce the emissions intensity by 33 to 35 % by 2030 from 2005 level.
To achieve this, India is determined to continue with its on-going interventions, enhance existing policies and launch new initiatives e.g introducing new, more efficient and cleaner technologies in thermal power generation, promoting renewable energy generation and increasing the share of alternative fuels in overall fuel mix or reducing emissions from transportation sector.
The Urban Pathways project will help Kochi build on several local plans, such as the cities master plan, the Smart Cities proposal and the Comprehensive Mobility Plan.
Indonesia NDC Summary
This paper will help identifying policy measures in line with the New Urban Agenda and in the context of the respective Nationally Determined Contributions for Indonesia. The project will take a holistic approach and optimise the synergies between transport, energy and resource management operations.
Morocco NDC Summary
This paper presents a summary of the Nationally Determined Contributions of the Kingdom of Morocco, which has been set in line with the New Urban Agenda and the Paris Agreement on climate change. This paper briefly discusses Morocco’s policy measures to reach its NDCs targets for mitigation and its adaptation to climate change. This paper focuses on the national and state policies and implementation strategies by the Moroccan government to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in three sectors: energy, transport and waste management. Finally, an overview of the policies and practices of Casablanca city to meet its adaptation and mitigation objectives to climate change is presented.
