Morocco upgrades its Nationally Determined Contribution

23 Jun 2021

Morocco has unveiled a new Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). The country commits to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2025 below a business-as-usual (BAU) scenario by 18.3% using its domestic resources (unconditional target) or by 45.5% with international support (conditional target). The new BAU scenario includes additional sub-sectors of the industry, namely the production of cement and the production of phosphates. The total cost of mitigation actions in the country’s NDC is estimated at US$38.8bn, including US$21.5bn for conditional actions. Under Morocco’s National Energy Strategy, renewables are expected to account for 52% of the country’s installed capacity by 2030.

In its first NDC released in September 2016, Morocco pledged to reduce its GHG emissions by 2030 below a BAU scenario by 17% using its domestic resources or by 42% with international support.
