20% THAILAND COMMITTED TO REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS
As a developing country vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, Thailand has articulated national targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), Thailand committed to reducing 20-25% of emissions from the energy, transport, waste and industry sectors by 2030 below business as usual.
