Colombia ups target for cuts in greenhouse gases

Thursday, June 15, 2017


On top of its already promised 20 percent reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases, Colombia announced it seeks a 30 percent reduction before 2030, but through foreign aid.

Environment Minister Luis Gilberto Murillo announced the renewed environmental ambitions as part of the peace process and in response to United States President Donald Trump’s decision last week to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement.
