Agriculture is the main economic driver in Mali, employing roughly 75% of the population and accounting for 50% of the GDP. However, the landlocked country situated in the Sahara and semi-arid Sahel is exposed to recurrent extreme events such as severe droughts and catastrophic floods, rendering only 14% of the land suitable for agriculture. Over the past couple of decades, the country has developed some agrometeorological tools that have enabled data collection on the ground and contributed to an increase in both agricultural production and economic benefits.
The CTCN and its Consortium partners, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), prepared a GCF Readiness proposal to facilitate the achievement of national targets for the building sector as defined in Thailand’s 2015 Energy Efficiency Plan and its NDC. According to Thailand’s NDC Road Map, 113 million of the 116 million tonnes of GHG emission reductions to be reduced by 2030 should be achieved through energy efficiency and renewable energy.
