This paper presents proposed methodologies for carbon mitigation strategy and expected frame for low carbon strategy for Nepal. It deals with the national scenario of energy consumption in different sectors and the share of fuel types in each sector. Based on national energy situation green house gas (GHG) emissions in each area are evaluated. With the use of both fuel types in energy mix, end use energy conversion technology and current GHG trend; potential energy related green house gas mitigation areas are identified. Moreover, non energy related probable GHG reduction areas are also identified. The outcome of this work will facilitate to realize the vision of low carbon society through sustainable development pathway as it helps in formulating a comprehensive strategy and action plan for low carbon strategy for Nepal.
