Argentina is active in the international negotiations and has provided two national communications. A national climate policy is due to be agreed and published in 2011. It submitted only a list of measures as NAMAs that cannot be translated into emission levels and is therefore rated Inadequate. Argentina can move to Medium or Sufficient if and when such a plan is provided.
Argentina submitted a list of unilateral and supported mitigation actions currently being undertaken across various sectors.
Date of pledge
Argentina provided a national greenhouse gas inventory for the period from 1990 to 2000 only and no emission projection. We used growth rates from the IEA's report on CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion (2008) to cover the period from 2001 to 2006. Projections are based on the growth rate published in the IEA World Energy Outlook 2009.
