CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In 2015 Niger submitted its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to UNFCCC. The target is to reduce its GHG emissions by 2.5% by 2020 and by 3.5% by 2030 compared to a BAU projection; with external support, the target would be raised to 25% in 2020 and 34.6% in 2030 (conditional target).

CO2 emissions from energy combustion were multiplied by 2.5 between 2000 and 2014 and have ...
