ESF.04.158 – Reduction of Greenhouse Gases

Greenhouse gas emission reduction is a key policy objective for Malta. This research paper identifies various international success stories and presents results from stakeholder consultation.

Increased policy focus on greenhouse gas reduction, fuel switching and alternative sourcing of electricity, and uptake of solar photovoltaics, were identified as the main gradual factors favouring this transition to improved greenhouse gas abatement but gaps in implementation remain.

The need for communication with the public, meaningful stakeholder engagement in decision-making, and investment in innovation to address these challenges and uncertainties are identified.
