Algeria rises six ranks to 48th in this year’s CCPI. This keeps it among the overall low performers. Algeria receives a medium rating in the GHG Emissions and Energy Use categories, with a very low in Renewable Energy and in Climate Policy.
No significant change
The country showed no significant change in ranks in the CCPI categories. Notably, however, was a 13-place rise in GHG Emissions (now 27th). This improvement owed to an improved ranking in the indicators for well-below-2°C compatibility of the current level and the 2030 target. Algeria is among the top 20 countries with the largest developed oil and gas reserves. This is not compatible with the 1.5°C target.
National experts that contributed to the policy evaluation of this year’s CCPI chose to remain anonymous.
