The Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) II

The GDP II replaces the initial GDP to cover the period 2015-2020. It sets some targets for energy generation from renewables and biofuels. The Plan focuses on improving the macroeconomic indicators, sectoral economic development plans (e.g. for agriculture and rural transformation, manufacturing, mining, tourism), infrastructure (transport, digital and water supply), human and technology capacity building, good governance and cross cutting issues. New feasible agricultural varieties that are resilient to climate change and have positive contributions for climate resilient green economy development aimed at enhancing agricultural production and productivity will also be identified and disseminated. Other important GTP II goals are protecting forests and re-afforestation including carbon stocks; expanding electricity generation from renewable sources of energy; and leap-frogging to energy efficient technologies in transport, industry and construction.

Building a climate resilient green economy is a pillar of the GTP. The plan notably aims at increase forest coverage from 15.5 % to 20%, thus reducing GHG emissions by 147 Mln/Metric tons.

To develop wildlife areas, reducing GHG emission & increasing CO2 sink, it is planned to reduce illegal action on protected areas by 80% during the plan period. The current level of 114 ton CO2 emission will be reduced by 50% annually. Coverage of necessary infrastructure facilities in national parks & protected wildlife zones will reach 70% by the end of the plan period. Moreover, rehabilitating protected wildlife areas & developing CO2 sinks will increase by 30% from existing 121.86 billion ton. by 2020 against a 2015 baseline
