Bangladesh sets more ambitious GHG reduction target for 2030

Bangladesh has updated its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), setting an unconditional greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction target of 6.7%, leading to absolute emission levels of 382 MtCO2eq in 2030, i.e. -28 MtCO2eq compared with the business-as-usual (BAU) scenario by 2030. The country’s conditional reduction target is an additional 15% of the BAU scenario by 2030 (total reduction target of 21.85%, i.e. -89 MtCO2eq in total), which would limit absolute GHG emissions levels to 320 MtCO2eq in 2030.

Bangladesh previously proposed for 12 MtCO2eq (5%) unconditional reduction in GHG emission from the BAU scenario by 2030 and a further 24 MtCO2eq (10%) conditional reduction in GHG emission with support from the international community. CO2 emissions from energy combustion have risen steadily and have multiplied by more than 2.5 since 2005.
