Ethiopia intends to become carbon neutral without specifying a target year (FDRE, 2015). Ethiopia is in the process of developing a long-term strategy under the 2050 Pathways Platform, an initiative that supports countries develop long-term net zero pathways (2050 Pathways Platform, 2019). Our assessment of this net zero target will follow later in the year.

For further information on the targets Ethiopia has adopted, see the targets tab.
