The primary objective of the NCCS is to covert the country into a “carbon neutral” economy by 2021. It introduces a target of 100% share of renewable sources in electricity generation by 2021. Other objectives are to reduce socio-economic and environmental impact of climate change, and promote sustainable development and environmental protection through actions of mitigation and adaptation. NCCS is divided into a national and an international agenda, detailing specific areas and actions to be taken within each domain.
The national agenda entails two core areas, mitigation and adaptation, as well as four transversal issues: measurement; capability development and technological transfer; public awareness, education and cultural exchange; and financing.
