Nauru - Updated Nationally Determined Contribution

The Republic of Nauru welcomes this opportunity to submit its updated nationally determined contribution pursuant to Article 4.2 of the Paris Agreement
under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). This updated nationally determined contribution (NDC) is intended
to cover the time period of 1 January 2021 through 31 December 2030, and replaces the initial NDC submitted by Nauru to the UNFCCC on 17 November
The overriding priority of the Government of Nauru is to eradicate poverty and to improve the safety, security, and quality of life of its citizens. To this
end, Nauru’s climate action has been aligned with national efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and is fully integrated with our National
Sustainable Development Strategy (NSDS). Therefore, this updated NDC has been similarly structured around the following seven national sustainable
development priorities:
• Productive Land
• Healthy and Productive People
• Water Security
• Food Security
• Energy Security
• Healthy Environment
• Good Governance
In addition, an eighth area of contributions – Loss & Damage – has been included to address climate change impacts that exceed Nauru’s adaptive
Nauru intends to pursue a range of sustainable development actions within these policy areas, which are described in this updated NDC, all of which
bring significant climate change adaptation and mitigation co-benefits.
