Zimbabwe presented its revised NDC 2021. The revised NDC commits to an economy-wide emissions reduction target of 40% by 2030 as compared to the business-as-usual scenario. The revised NDC covers mitigation actions for energy, waste, industrial processes and product use, agriculture, forestry and other land-uses as well as adaptation measures in response to the country’s high vulnerability. The estimated cost of implementing the mitigation measures within the NDC is USD 4.8 billion. A costing of adaptation measures will be included in the forthcoming National Adaptation Plan. Zimbabwe developed a Low Emission Development Strategy (LEDS) in 2019, which includes mitigation measures across all sectors of the economy and creates a foundation for a functional, effective and sustainable domestic monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) system.
