Energy sector reform involving
restructuring, privatization and independent regulation will lead
to greater efficiencies in energy supply systems and have a
positive impact on greenhouse gas emissions.
Goal 5 on Environmentally sound energy services.
Latin America and the Caribbean:
USAID's environmental programs
in Brazil, Mexico, and the Central American region are designed
to reduce the growth rate of carbon dioxide emissions by:
reducing tropical deforestation (increasing carbon sinks); and,
promoting the use of "clean" energy technologies, which reduce
fossil fuel burning.
Agency Strategic Goal:
The World's Environment Protected for Long Term

Performance Goal 3:
Rate of growth of

Average annual percent change in the rate
of growth of carbon dioxide emissions.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions
from industrial processes are those

For example, if the carbon
emission growth rate is 10 in 1995, the
1999 figure would be 9.6%.

figures would not be available until 2003.
