Project Background, Outcomes and Impacts

Background: As a major natural gas exporter with an aspiration to become an advanced knowledge-based economy by 2030, low-carbon and climate resilient pathways can offer win-win opportunities for Qatar in addressing key issues such as air pollution, waste management, and energy efficiency while promoting innovation and economic diversification. As such, GGGI plans to outline national green growth pathways and action plans for economic diversification and climate action. It will assess green growth opportunities in Qatar and identify priority intervention areas to seize such opportunities and manage trade-offs. It will also outline green indicators and alternative green growth scenarios tailored to the Qatari context.


Outcomes: Enhanced enabling environment for low-carbon and climate resilient pathways over the next decades; effective implementation of the NDC; and strong foundation for attracting financing for green, low-carbon projects over the near and long term

Impacts: More diversified, lower-carbon, and knowledge-based economy in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030; achievement of objectives of the National Environment and Climate Change Strategy
