Vanuatu Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) Implementation Roadmap
Vanuatu has submitted its INDC to United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on 29 September 2015 and the same document was endorsed and submitted as the first Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) on 21 September 2016. Although being a Small Island State with a small carbon footprint, Vanuatu has committed to a challenging mitigation target in its NDC of transitioning to close to 100% renewable energy in the electricity sector by 2030. Achieving this target would replace nearly all fossil fuel requirements for electricity generation in the country.
This NDC Implementation Roadmap (NDC-IR) aims at providing a pathway for the implementation of specific mitigation actions in Vanuatu. In the business as usual (BAU) electricity demand scenario, an increase in electricity demand from 77.9 GWh in 2017 to 100.7 GWh in 2030 is projected. This is a otal increase of 29.4%.
