Vanuatu has ratified the Paris Agreement on 18th June 2016 and submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) on 21th September 2016.

An NDC Implementation Roadmap was launched in March 2019, that aims to provide a pathway towards implementing specific climate change mitigation actions which can assist in achieving the targets defined in Vanuatu’s NDC and NERM. Furthermore, to enable the tracking of the impacts of its climate actions, Vanuatu has introduced its Integrated, Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) Tool in April 2019.

The Integrated MRV tool is a first of its kind initiative which enables tracking, reporting and verification of:
1. GHG emissions
2. impacts of mitigation (including NDC) actions 3. impacts of adaptation actions
4. climate finance flows and
5. SDG impacts.
