This Technology Transfer Advances Thailand's
- Nationally Determined Contribution to "achieve climate-resilient and low-carbon growth in line with a sustainable development path by 2050".
Thailand's Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) aim to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 7-20 % by 2020. The iron and steel industry is the largest energy consuming industry, and one of the most prevalent sources of GHGs emissions. Thailand would like to study the baseline of energy consumption and GHG emissions among other countries as a benchmark to support Thailand's NAMA implementation.
