Policy advice

Under the Paris Agreement, all countries are to formulate, submit and periodically revise their climate change mitigation activities and targets in the form of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). NACAG’s objective is for all countries to include the abatement of nitrous oxide emissions in their NDCs and put in place effective mechanisms to ensure the long-term emission abatement. Such mechanisms can take a variety of forms, including benchmark regulation and emission trading systems. The NACAG Secretariat advises governments on policy and legislative options concerning sustainable climate change mitigation in the nitric acid sector. This also comprises the analysis of abatement costs and implications for the sector, as well as consultancy on sustainable financing options for abatement in the future.

Governments interested in cooperating with the NACAG and benefiting from the Secretariat’s advisory services are welcome to contact the NACAG Secretariat.

Additional information on the cooperation with political and private sector partners may be found under Working with NACAG.
