Climate targets: LULUCF

    • To develop wildlife areas, reducing GHG emission & increasing CO2 sink, it is planned to reduce illegal action on protected areas by 80% during the plan period. The current level of 114 ton CO2 emission will be reduced by 50% annually. Coverage of necessary infrastructure facilities in national parks & protected wildlife zones will reach 70% by the end of the plan period. Moreover, rehabilitating protected wildlife areas & developing CO2 sinks will increase by 30% from existing 121.86 billion ton. by 2020 against a 2015 baseline
