GHG emissions from the waste sector*

  • Business-as-usual (BAU) scenario (tCO2e/y)
  • Integrated Waste Management (IWM) Scenario (tCO2e/y)
* the GHG emissions data provided for the year 2022 (both BAU and IWM Scenarios) is indicative. The emissions associated with the IWM Scenario are forecasted by the project team on the basis of activities that are to be implemented within the scope of the IWM NAMA project along with the actions planned by the local authorities independently. Every year, the actual data on emissions will be updated as result of GHG emissions monitoring and published on the website under the IWM Scenario. The GHG emissions associated with the BAU Scenario will also be updated annually taking into account the amount and composition of waste generated by each demo-city within the project boundary.
