|Overview : |
Ghana is among the top five GHG emitters in the ECOWAS sub-region. Its 2019 emissions of 58.6 million tonnes represented an 86% rise in the last decade and expected to hit 100 million tonnes by 2030 along the BAU pathway. The rising GHG emission trends correspond to the structural economic changes driven by fossil-dependent electrification and transportation, oil and gas production and land-use change. There are inherent fiscal and technological incentives that continue to instigate reliance on fossil-fuel investments and extractive industry (minerals, oil and gas, commodity tree crops and timber). In addition, some of the existing taxation and subsidy policies still favour fossil fuel use. Mining, logging, and agriculture are the main drivers of GHG emissions associated with land-use change. However, Ghana has adopted a wide range of socio-economic strategies to deliver long-term greenhouse mitigation outcome. Within the NDC, Ghana has a mitigation potential of 84 million tonnes of GHG emissions by 2030.
