Ghana submitted its intended nationally determined contribution (GH-iNDC)1 to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on 21st September 2015. Pursuant to Articles 4.2 and 4.9 of the Paris Agreement, “Each Party shall prepare, communicate and maintain successive nationally determined contributions that it intends to achieve. Parties that have submitted their NDCs shall provide the first update by 2020 and every five years thereafter. Parties shall pursue domestic mitigation measures, with the aim of achieving the objectives of such contributions.”

This report serves as an input for the preparatory work Ghana would undertake in 2020 to update its NDC which was submitted in 2015.
