Eritrea's Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) report

Eritrea is strongly convinced that much of the critical climate change problem that faces our Planet is attributable to human activities and it is a signatory to the UNFCCC. The ultimate objective of the Convention is to achieve the stabilization of greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere at a level recommended by science, in order to prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the global climate system.

The phenomenon of climate change has already reached a critical stage that is hard to ignore. In fact humanity has no other option but to abandon business as usual approach of production, use of natural resources and consumption. Nations have to cooperate to keep the cumulative global GHG concentration in the atmosphere within the allowable limit as recommended by the science so as to mitigate climate change and its menacing impacts on life. The latest climate science indicates the total amount of emission reduction required to realise the likely chance of limiting global warming to less than 2°C, the goal adopted by the UNFCCC. To achieve this goal, global emissions must peak by 2020 and net GHG emissions must be phased out over the long term. This necessitates major emitters to make substantial reduction in their projected baseline business as usual emissions and all others to adopt sustainable path.

Eritrea upholds the basic principles of the Convention that require all parties to contribute to the protection of the global climate system on the basis of equity and in accordance with their common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities. In line with this, Eritrea submits its INDC report to UNFCCC Secretariat in response to the call made under paragraph concerted effort and wide consultative process of all stakeholders and technical experts involved in issues related to climate change, constitutes an expression of Eritrea's commitment to the objectives of UNFCCC as well as its resolve to streamline climate adaptation and mitigation to its national development strategy.
