Climate resilience and green economy in Ethiopia
The Climate Resilient Green Economy (CRGE) is the government of Ethiopia’s vision for the nation’s development as part of the Government of Ethiopia Growth and Transformational Plan (GTP II). Based on the CRGE, Ethiopia has submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to the UNFCCC prior to COP21. The INDC limits net GHG emissions in 2030 to 145 Mt CO2e or lower, where appropriate finance and incentives are made available. This would constitute a 255 MtCO2e reduction from the projected ‘business-as-usual’ (BAU) emissions in 2030 or a 64% reduction.
