In 2015 🇪🇹 intended to limit its net (GHG) emissions in '30 to 145 Mt CO2e or lower. It is a 255 MtCO2e reduction from the projected ‘business-asusual’ (BAU) emissions in '30 or a 64% reduction from the BAU scenario in '30. Ahead of  #COP27🇪🇹 Click To Tweet

At 1.8 tCO2e, 🇪🇹's per capita GHG emissions are insignificant compared to total global emissions. when Ethiopia’s contribution is fully implemented, it would reduce per capita emissions to 1.1 tCO2e by 2030 exceeding expectations. Ahead of #COP27🇪🇹 #EthiopiaPrevails @UNDPClimate Click To Tweet


The full & effective impl of the Green Economy Strategy requires more than $150 bln by '30. a category of 🇪🇹's Intended Nationally Determined Contrib is to identify the tech,policies &actions to enable invstmt limiting emission to 145 Mt/lower.Ahead of #COP27🇪🇹 Click To Tweet
