Cambodia submitted its updated First NDC in 2021. The updated NDC presents an emissions reduction target of 41.7% from the business-as-usual scenario by 2030, with half of that reduction concentrated in the forestry and land use sector and the rest primarily in the energy, agriculture, industry, and waste sectors. The NDC also has a strong adaptation component including infrastructure, water, and agriculture sectors. The total funding required for all mitigation actions is over USD $5.8 billion while funding required for adaptation is just over USD $2 billion. Cambodia has also submitted its Long-Term Strategy for Carbon Neutrality, aiming to achieve net-zero emission and carbon neutrality by 2050.
