CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In its updated NDC (2021), Mali set a target to reduce its GHG emissions by 31% in 2030 compared to a BAU scenario (-25% for agriculture, -31% for energy, and -39% for LULUCF).
Since 2005, energy-related CO2 emissions have more than tripled, reaching almost 6 Mt in 2020.
