Ethiopia's updated NDC and Climate Resilient Green Economy Strategy commit to reduce emissions by 68.8% compared to BAU projections by 2030, including 14% reductions unconditionally committed and 54.8% contingent on international support. The updated NDC also includes 40 prioritized adaptation actions that derive from the NAP and align with the 10 year national development plan. The updated NDC is based on a robust set of technical information, policy review and data, significantly improving the quality and ambition of Ethiopia's commitment to the Paris Agreement. It also forms the basis for updating the CRGE, Ethiopia's primary strategy for climate action. The updated NDC is also integrated to the 10 year development plan - Ethiopia's first long term development strategy - with support from the World Bank, GIZ and the World Resources Institute. The Partnership started engagement with Ethiopia in 2019, with a request for support to strengthen MRV systems and develop a knowledge management tool to centralize reporting and provide information on Ethiopia's implementation progress and NDC targets. Moving forward, Ethiopia is now developing an implementation plan for the NDC, with support from the NDC Partnership, UNDP and other partners supporting Ethiopia. To support the green recovery planning process from COVID-19, Ethiopia is receiving support from GIZ for an economic advisor to the Ministry of PLanning and Development, formed in late 2021. The Government's priorities are largely focused on resource mobilization through project preparation, strengthening monitoring and reporting systems and coordinating support for implementation at the sector and sub-national levels.
