SOUTH AFRICA’S THIRD NATIONAL COMMUNICATION UNDER THE UNITED NATIONS FRAMEWORK CONVENTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE

The initial National Communication in accordance with Ar-ticle 12 of the United Nations Framework Convention on climate Change (UNFCCC) was prepared in 2004, followed by the second communication in 2011. This document constitutes South Africa’s Third National Communication (TNC). The document follows suggested UNFCCC guide-lines for developing countries in reporting on national cir-cumstances; a national Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory for the period 2011-2012; climate change over South Africa in terms of trends and projected changes, vulnerability as-sessments and national adaptation strategies; measures to mitigate climate change; and other information relevant to the Convention (including a technology needs assessment, research and systematic observations and climate change education, training, awareness and capacity building needs).
