Ethiopia has demonstrated its continued and enhanced commitments to the international community and the Paris Agreement by presenting a bold and ambitious new and updated nationally determined contribution (NDC) in July 2021. This aims to reduce national emissions by 68.8% as compared to business as usual by 2030, to be largely accomplished through reforestation and forest restoration, and primarily implemented in the drylands. The land use change and forestry (LUCF) sector represents more than 85% of the mitigation potential of the country, and the proposed interventions will address the impacts of alarming deforestation and land degradation on communities and the economy, while contributing to climate change mitigation. This report provides a detailed review of the links between forest landscape restoration and Ethiopia’s NDCs, with a focus on the drylands.
