Its commitment aims to reduce cumulative emissions by 15% by 2030 versus 2013 levels. The plan targets three primary emitting sectors: power generation, industry and transportation. In absolute terms, the reduction is equivalent to 103 million tons of carbon dioxide, Trinidad’s Planning and Development Minister Camille Robinson-Regis said last week during the virtual Caribbean Sustainable Energy Conference. The cost to achieve the target is around $2 billion, which is expected to come from domestic funding and conditional or international financing, including through the Green Climate Fund.
