However, despite progress, NDCs fall short of tapping into the 4.9 GtCO2 of potential annual emissions abatement that could be achieved if countries were to pursue strategic low-carbon and energy-efficient buildings technology deployment. In fact, nearly one-third of the NDCs mentioning buildings do not indicate specific actions in the NDCs and concrete measures and targets are often missing. Hence, buildings-related NDCs only cover less than 15% of buildings sector emissions beyond
