The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as mandated by Section 99, of the Environmental Protection and Management Law (EPML) is the principal authority in Liberia responsible for coordinating all Multilateral Environmental Agreements and is empowered to coordinate, monitor, supervise and consult with relevant stakeholders on all activities in the protection of the environment and sustainable use of natural resources.
With the adoption of the Paris Agreement (PA), adopted at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UNFCCC in December 2015, all countries agreed on an enhanced transparency framework (ETF) for action and support (Article 13), with built-in flexibility which takes into account Parties’ different capacities and builds upon collective experience. The Paris Agreement sets out a global action plan that puts the world on track to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2°C. It establishes that each individual Party should submit a Nationally Determined Contribution and revise it every five years in order to achieve the global goal of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In fulfillment of this agreement, Liberia submitted its NDC on April 4, 2022 to the UNFCCC Secretariat through the Environmental Protection Agency. Liberia committed to reducing its economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions by 64% below the projected business-as-usual level by 2030.
