Greenhouse Gas Emissions Factsheet: Mali
This factsheet provides information on 2014 greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in Mali. Included is an overview of emissions by sector, changes in emissions, information on carbon intensity, as well as climate change mitigation targets and plans.
Mali’s total GHG emissions in 2014 were 38.70 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCO2e), totaling .08% of GHG emissions. In Mali, 76.8 percent of GHG emissions come from the agriculture sector, followed by the land-use change and forestry, energy, waste and industrial processes sector which contribute 18.5 percent, 3.7 percent, 0.9 and 0.1 percent relatively to GHG emissions.
Mali’s GHG emissions fluctuated but increased overall by 66% (15.4 MtCO2e) from 1990 to 2014. Mali’s GDP increased 194% from 1990 to 2014, averaging 4.7% annually, while GHG emissions increased 66%, averaging 2.2% annually. Although GDP grew faster than GHG emissions, in 2014 Mali’s emissions relative to GDP were almost five times the world average.
In its INDC, Mali committed to reduce emissions by 27% by 2030 compared to projected business-as-usual emissions. By sector, the emission reduction commitments are 29% for agriculture, 31% for energy, and 21% for LUCF. This commitment is conditional upon receiving external aid, for which the overall cost is estimated to be US$34.68 billion.
