Overview :

Samoa’s INDC currently focuses on mitigation activities, within its electricity sub-sector of the Energy Sector. By means of this option, Samoa is not neglecting adaptation measures or activities towards climate change, but using the opportunity to create a clear pathway towards achievable initiatives.  As stated in Samoa’s INDC, one of the important elements in developing Samoa’s INDC is the availability of updated information and data and Electricity sub-sector has up-to date information available.
