National Greenhouse Gases Emission Projections Report for 2030 and 2050

Assignment for the preparation of the National Greenhouse Gas Projections Report for 2022-2023

CARE-C supports the Department of Environment (DoE) in the calculation and compilation of the Greenhouse Gas Projections report, in order to fulfil the obligations of Cyprus, jointly with other EU Member States, under the Kyoto Protocol. The current national goal, submitted in December 2020 within the framework of the Paris Agreement, is to reduce emissions by at least 55% below 1990 levels by 2030 including LULUCF (Land Use and Land Use Change and Forestry). Cyprus is obligated to report national projections of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions under Regulation (EU) 2018/1999 on the Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action.

CARE-C is also responsible for the calculation of GHG Projections up to 2050 taking into consideration Policies and Mitigation Actions (PaMs) into different scenarios: BaU (Business as Usual), WEM (with existing measures) and WAM (with additional measures), in order to decide which new measures will be included in the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP). The projection calculations and chapters, on policy and measures and on projections, are submitted under National Communications and Biennial Reviews to the UNFCCC.
