Thailand’s second NDC increases its GHG emissions reduction targets for 2030

4 Nov 2022

Thailand has released its second Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris agreement, in which the country increases its greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction target to 30% by 2030, under a business-as-usual scenario from the reference year 2005.

The level of contribution could conditionally increase to 40% if the country receives adequate access to technology development and transfer, financial resources and capacity building support. The scope of the targets is economy-wide and doesn’t include land use, land-use change and forestry. In addition, Thailand confirms in its second NDC its long-term goals to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 and net-zero GHG emissions in 2065.

In its updated first NDC, released in 2020, Thailand originally planned to reduce its emissions by 20% (unconditionally) and 25% (conditionally) by 2030 under a business-as-usual scenario from the reference year 2005.
