What is Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC)?

 

NDC is a pledge by each Party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to mitigate by reducing national greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change as requested by the Paris Agreement in 2015. As pledged in NDC, Malaysia is committed to reduce the GHG emissions intensity of GDP by 45% by 2030 relative to the emissions intensity of GDP in 2005. The agricommodity sector has been contributing towards achieving the Malaysia’s NDC through the implementation of various mitigation programs and initiatives such as biodiesel program, biogas capture from palm oil mill effluent, sustainable commodity certification schemes such as Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) and Malaysian Timber Certification Scheme (MTCS) as well as limiting the commodity’s land area.
