Climate Change Strategy 2010-2020

Executive
Strategy
Passed in 2010
The Strategy sketches Turkey's vision in addressing multiple aspects of climate change, and serves as a basis for the National Climate Change Action Plan 2011-2023.
 
The Strategy puts forth a set of policies to address those in the short-, medium-, and long term for reduction of emissions from the following sectors: energy, industry, transportation, waste, LULUCF.
 
It calls for increasing of energy efficiency and use of renewable energy, gradually moving to low- and zero-carbon emissions and the reduction of energy intensity by 2020 to 2004 levels, 30% share of renewables in electricity by 2023, and a reduction of 7% of emissions from electricity by 2020 against a BAU scenario.
 
The strategy also addresses the need to develop policy on climate change adaptation.
 
The Strategy further lays out a way forward for technology development and transfer, institutional infrastructure building and monitoring.
