Nicaragua presents a reduction of 10 per cent (conditional) relative to a business-as-usual scenario by 2030. The BAU scenario reaches 77 MtCO2eq in 2030. Therefore, a reduction to 69 MtCO2 eq is envisioned.

Nicaragua focuses on strategic planning across areas. It includes energy, industry and LULUCF sectors. In the energy sector, Nicaragua sets an increase to 65% of the matrix from renewable sources by 2030. Also, it planns to switch the fuel for a less intensive carbon, such as natural gas rather than diesel.  In the industry a strategic development is envisioned to reduce emissions of GHG and F gases, increase energy efficiency and shift to a low-carbon technology. In the LULUCF sector, Nicaragua focuses on reforestation, aiming to reduce CO2 emissions by 25%. In industry energy efficiency and low-carbon technology are relevant mitigation areas (Nicaragua NDC, 2020)
