CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

According to its NDC, Colombia has pledged to cut GHG emissions by at least 20% in 2030 compared to a BAU scenario, a target that could be raised to 25% or 30%, if it receives financial backing from the international community.

CO2 emissions from energy combustion increased by 55% (around 6%/year) between 2008 and 2016. After a sharp decrease of 14% in 2017 due to the industry and power sectors, they increased again rapidly in 2018 and 2019 by around 5%/year to 83 MtCO2.
