Georgia’s NDC establishes 1990 as the reference year and proposes an unconditional economy-wide 2030 target to reduce GHG emissions by 35%. In the case of external support, Georgia is committed to a reduction of 50-57% of its GHG emissions. In 1990 Georgia’s emission was 45,000 Gg CO2e (excl. LULUCF). The NDC encompasses CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, SF6 and NF3 (Georgia’s NDC, 2021).
Georgia aims to mitigate 15% of emissions from the reference year in the transport and energy sector. Low carbon approaches are the way forward in the industrial, agricultural and buildings sectors through energy efficient technologies, climate-friendly innovations and climate smart agriculture.
There is no mention regarding the long term strategy.
Georgia estimated the GHG emissions using GWP in the IPCC AR4.
