In the updated NDC submissions, 1% of activities addressed Goal 1 compared with 2% in the first NDC submissions. In the first NDCs, countries were prioritising targets '1.2 Reduce relative poverty' (48%) and '1.5 Resilience of the poor and vulnerable (to climate events)' (30%), linking these to 'Relative poverty reduction' (41%), 'Stronger resilience against disasters and extreme natural events' (27%) and 'Extreme or absolute poverty eradication' (12%) as key strategies for climate action. In the updated NDCs, countries are prioritising targets '1.5 Resilience of the poor and vulnerable (to climate events)' (39%) and '1.3 Social protection systems' (23%), linking these to 'Stronger resilience against disasters and extreme natural events' (32%) 'Improved social protection' (21%) and 'Relative poverty reduction' (14%) as key strategies for climate action.
Regarding first NDC submissions, activities related to this Goal are prioritising adaptation with 66% of the activities, while 17% focus on mitigation. Meanwhile, for updated NDC submissions 63% prioritise adaptation and 25% mitigation. The share of quantified activities has increased from 9% in the first NDCs to 20% in the updated NDC submissions.
