NDCs can define elements as unconditional or conditional, depending on specific circumstances. For example, many developing countries’ NDCs contain elements that are conditional on climate finance. The synthesis report shows that if all elements, conditional as well as unconditional, are implemented, total GHG emissions could peak before 2030, whereas if only unconditional elements are implemented, emissions would likely reach a level 7.8 % higher in 2030, compared to 2019, as shown in Figure 2 below.
