Knowledge Note

"Learn more about Tajikistan's commitment toward reducing its greenhouse gas emissions".

This factsheet provides information on 2014 greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in Tajikistan. Included is an overview of emissions by sector, changes in emissions, information on carbon intensity, as well as climate change mitigation targets and plans.

Tajikistan’s total GHG emissions in 2014 were 11.96 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCO2e), totaling 0.02 percent of global GHG emissions. The agriculture sector serves as the predominant source of GHG emissions in Tajikistan, with 46.3 percent of emissions from agricultural emissions, 41.4 percent from energy, 7.1 percent from industrial processes, 5.2 percent from waste, and 0% from land-use change and forestry.

Per its INDC, Tajikistan set a target to limit GHG emissions to 65-75% of 1990 levels by 2030, conditioned upon receipt of substantial international funding and technology transfer. Tajikistan also set an unconditional target not to exceed 80-90% of its 1990 emission level by 2030. Tajikistan would achieve these targets through actions in the following areas: power industry and water resources; industry and construction; land use, agriculture and gardening and grazing; forestry and biodiversity; and transportation and infrastructure.
