MINISTER FOR CLIMATE CHANGE LAUNCHES NDC IMPLEMENTATION ROADMAP
The Attorney General and Minister responsible for Climate Change, Hon. Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum today launched the NDC Implementation Roadmap at the Bonn Zone in Bonn, Germany.
The Roadmap sets out progressive renewable initiatives targeted towards reducing 30 percent of Fiji’s carbon dioxide emissions over the next 13 years from a Business as Usual baseline of 1.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide.
The Roadmap recognises that while Fiji’s NDC is a genuine commitment to the Paris Agreement, it is also ambitious and requires substantial financing, human capital, technical capacity, technological/technology uptake and international support to achieve the targets,” the AG said.
“To reiterate our commitment towards holding the increase in global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels, I am pleased to inform that Fiji has developed its NDC Implementation Roadmap to guide national decarbonisation ambitions until the year 2030.”
