CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Myanmar submitted its INDC to the UNFCC in 2015. However, there are no quantitative estimates for GHG reduction in the INDC document. Instead, it outlines the various mitigation efforts pursued by the Government in the sectors of forestry and energy. The country does, however, note that it is a net GHG emissions sink.

CO2 emissions from energy combustion have tripled to 27 MtCO2 since ...
