Tunisia submitted its first NDC in 2015 and updated NDC in 2021. The updated NDC has an emissions reduction target of 45% by 2030 as compared to a 2010 baseline. The updated NDC covers the energy, industrial processes and product use, agriculture, forestry and land use, waste, water, ecosystems, coastal zones, health, and tourism sectors. The overall cost of NDC implementation is estimated at USD 19.3 billion for 2021-2030 including 14.3 billion US dollars for mitigation, 4.3 billion US dollars for adaptation, and 0.7 billion US dollars for capacity building actions. Tunisa is committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 as reflected in the Long-term Low Emission Development Strategy (LT LEDS) submitted to the UNFCCC in 2022.
