UN Climate Change
Uzbekistan submitted its new climate action plan to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
This Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) means that there is now near universal participation of countries in the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
UNFCCC Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa said: "I am delighted to have received Uzbekistan’s INDC. It means that we now have near universal participation in the Paris Agreement, which clearly illustrates the world’s strong support for accelerated climate action.”
INDCs are climate action plans that are transformed into Nationally Determined Contributions as soon as a country ratifies the Paris Agreement.
This INDC and all others submitted by countries are available on the UNFCCC website here. Including Uzbekistan, 163 parties to the UNFCCC have formally submitted their INDCs.
The Paris agreement came into effect in November 2016, empowering all countries to act to prevent average global temperatures rising above 2 degrees Celsius and to reap the many opportunities that arise from a necessary global transformation to clean and sustainable development.
