INDC of Eritrea

The government of the State of Eritrea is committed to reduce the CO2 emissions from fossil fuels by 23.1% in 2020, 30.2 % by 2025 and 39.2% by 2030 visa-vis to the reference year. If additional support is solicited, it can be further reduced by 36.4 % in 2020, 61.1% by 2015* and 80.6% by 2030. The BAU scenario for all GHG gases expected to increase to: 5 MtCO2eq in 2020, 5.5 MtCO2eq in 2025 and in 2030 6.3 MtCO2eq. Therefore, Eritrea intends to limit its net greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions in 2030 to less than 3.9 MtCO2eq. This would constitute a 39% reduction from the projected ‘business-as-usual’ (BAU) emissions in 2030 or 80.6% reduction from the reducible BAU scenario in 2030 as shown in Figure 1. The BAU scenario for all fossil fuel CO2 emission expected to increase 1.7 MtCO2 in 2020, 2.2 MtCO2 in 2025 and in 2030, 3 MtCO2. Unconditional mitigation scenario: With internal resources Eritrea can implement its unconditional scenario reaching 1.3 MtCO2 in 2020, 1.6 MtCO2 in 2025 and 1.9 MtCO2 in 2030from fossil fuel CO2. Conditional mitigation scenario: With external assistances Eritrea can implement its conditional scenario reaching 1.1 MtCO2 In 2020, 0.9 MtCO2 in 2025 and 0.6 MtCO2 in 2030from fossil fuel CO2.(*It appears they intended to say 2025.)
