Country Brief

Cote d'Ivoire has one of the fastest growing economies on the continent. The country's national development strategy, combined with a strong demographic growth will contribute to a substantial increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In addition, Côte d'Ivoire is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change which affect all essential sectors of its development.  Through the Nationally Determined Planned Contribution (INDC), Côte d'Ivoire intends to: mark its desire to reduce the carbon footprint of its development by favoring mitigation options with high “co-benefits” ; strengthen the country's resilience to climate change; align its sector policies and strengthen its mechanism and implementation tools to facilitate the achievement of these objectives; and mobilize for this purpose all relevant means, in particular funding, both national and international.
