MITIGATION PATHWAYS FOR TAJIKISTAN TO ACHIEVE CARBON NEUTRALITY BY 2050 (RESEARCH REPORT)
Nov 11, 2021
The research provides an initial assessment or mapping of the alternative long-term mitigation pathways for Tajikistan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, meaning achieving net zero GHG emissions by balancing emissions with removals, by 2050. The research suggests the vision for a climate-neutral Tajikistan in 2050 by assessing all the key emitting sectors and exploring pathways to achieve the transition. Following international best practices on mitigation long-term strategies, the research assesses the costs and financial strategies needed in alternative mitigation pathways integrated under several macroeconomic scenarios. Four mitigation pathways are designed with each mitigation pathway having distinctive implications on the economy, society, and standard of living in Tajikistan, and will have specific costs and investments needed for their realisation.
