Seychelles submitted its updated NDC in July 2021. The country aims to reduce its emissions by 26.4% by 2030 as compared to the business-as-usual scenario. The updated NDC covers energy, transport, solid waste, tourism, circular economy, coastal management, infrastructure, fisheries, agriculture and biosecurity, blue carbon ecosystems, biodiversity conservation, health, and early warning and disaster risk management. The total cost of NDC implementation is estimated at USD 331.50 million for mitigation measures and USD 339 million for adaptation measures. With international support, Seychelles also commits to protect at least 50% of its seagrass and mangrove ecosystems by 2025 and 100% by 2030. The country also aims to achieve a decarbonized net-zero economy by 2050. Seychelles has an NDC Action Plan which is in the process of being revised to be fully aligned with the updated NDC.

With Partnership support, Seychelles has developed an NDC Action Plan for the period 2019-2021 covering 5 outcomes areas related to energy and transport, MRV and assessment, adaptation and institutional capacity, adaptation planning and climate resilience, and climate finance. In addition, partners have supported various activities, including the improvement of the energy policy, the integration of blue economy and blue carbon in the revised NDC, and the preparation and optimization of the grid to achieve 15% renewable energy mix by 2030.
