In 2015 many of the world’s countries signed the Paris Agreement, committing themselves to climate change-related, nationally determined contributions. The agreement called for an increase in ambition for 2020, stating that signatory states need to submit renewed NDCs every five years from then on, ensuring that the international community will continue to strengthen its climate change mitigation efforts in the years to come. Future Media News contacted the deputy director of Multilateral Environmental Agreements in the Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism who said Namibia has complied with this requirement.
