We rate The Gambia’s NDC “1.5°C Paris Agreement compatible” based on its unconditional NDC target for 2025. The “1.5°C Paris Agreement compatible” rating indicates that The Gambia’s climate commitment in 2025 is consistent with holding warming well below 2oC, and limiting warming to 1.5°C. The Gambia’s commitment does not require other countries to make comparably deeper reductions or greater effort, and is in the most stringent part of its Fair Share range. If the CAT were to rate the NDC based on The Gambia’s indicated 2030 emission reduction projections, the NDC would also be rated “1.5°C Paris Agreement compatible”.
