Cambodia targets carbon neutrality by 2050

19 Jan 2022

The Cambodian Ministry of Environment has released a plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. As part of its Long-term Strategy for Carbon Neutrality (LTS4CN), the country pledged to cut its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by more than 40% of median levels by 2030. In addition, Cambodia intends to reduce deforestation by half by 2030 and to reach zero emissions in its forestry sector by 2040. The government, which ambitions to reform its forestry sector, decarbonise its transport sector and promote low-carbon agricultural and goods production processes, submitted its Long-term strategy for Carbon Neutrality (LTS4CN) to the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at the end of December 2021. 

Energy-related CO2 emissions in Cambodia nearly doubled over 2014-2019 with the commissioning of two new coal-fired power plants and reached 12 MtCO2 in 2019.
