Lebanon submitted its updated NDC in 2020, increasing its unconditional emissions reduction target to 20% and conditional target to 31% as compared to the business-as-usual scenario. The updated NDC has a strong adaptation focus with priorities for strengthening agricultural resilience, sustainable use of natural resources, sustainable water services, management of terrestrial and marine biodiversity, reducing vulnerability of coastal zones, ensuring public health, and reducing disaster risk. The NDC also contains a set of financial means and enabling conditions—including capacity building, technology transfer, and costing needs assessment—to support the NDC implementation.
