Abstract:One of the topics most present in recent years has been the rapid change of climate and its global implications. This research aims to explore countries’ abilities to adapt and reduce climate change implications in the context of developing countries. With the establishment of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), a big step was made towards actively combatting climate change, thus each country’s performance in achieving their set goals is of immense importance. Naturally, it is observable that there are differences in NDC performance, especially in African developing countries. Thus, the following research question of “How can we explain differences in Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) performance between Morocco and South Africa in the context of sustainable transitions such as green energy?” aims to offer new insights into influences on NDC performance. After a comprehensive analysis of the country data on NDC performance and possible influential factors, it becomes apparent that there is a clear link between development aid, especially regarding climate finance, as well as national circumstances and the sustainable transition process. Furthermore, this research concludes that sustainable transitions positively affect countries’ NDC performance, which ultimately also leads to a more distant link between NDC performance, climate finance and national circumstances.
