CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In its NDC (Nationally Determined Contribution), Belarus committed to reducing HGH emissions by at least 28% below the 1990 level by 2030, excluding emissions and removals in land use, land-use change and the forestry sector, and without any additional conditions.

Belarus's energy-related CO2 emissions were stable between 2005 and 2014, at around 60 Mt, but decreased in 2015 and 2016; ...
