The “Intended Nationally Determined Contribution” (INDC) of Cabo Verde is hereby submitted jointly by the Ministry of Environmental, Housing and Land Planning and by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with a view to contribute to the process of the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to be held in Paris in December 2015.

It responds to COP decisions 1/CP.19 and 1/CP.20 inviting all Parties to communicate to the secretariat their INDCs so as to achieve the objective set out in Article 2 of the UNFCCC and in a way that demonstrates a progression beyond their current undertakings. The submission draws attention to the fact that Cabo Verde is a small island developing state (SIDS) and that the strategies, plans and actions for low greenhouse gas emission (GHG) development put forward herein reflect the special circumstances and adaptation challenges of Cabo Verde, which require specific international support in terms of capacity-building, technology transfer, and financial commitments.
