IADB UNDP GEF Project Support to Brazil’s National Determined Contribution

Brazil is a developing country with several challenges regarding poverty eradication, education, public health, employment, housing, infrastructure and energy access.


Although ambitious, the targets set in the NDC are focused. Only a few selected topics are explicitly mentioned in the NDC as making a contribution to an overall economy-wide target.


They combine actions towards supporting Brazil in its ambition to operationalize the proposed Sustainable Development Mechanism (SDM) foreseen under the Paris Agreement and to facilitate, through enabling action, mitigation goals enshrined in its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) as a joint effort of government, private sector and civil society
