Jamaica posits a reduction of 25.4 per cent (unconditional) and 28.5 per cent (conditional) relative to a business-as-usual scenario by 2030. The BAU scenario was projected having 2005 as reference year and considers 8.2MtCO2eq in 2030. Therefore, a reduction of 1.8 to 2.0 MtCO2 eq is envisioned. 

Jamaica’s NDC based upon policies and commitments that the country has already taken. In the LULUCF sector the focus is on reducing deforestation, increasing reforestation and best practices shifting to sustainable agriculture. In the energy sector (supply and demand), a partnership in the spirit of UNFCCC between North-South is envisaged in order to transition towards renewables.
