2 Energy use versus GNP. Source: World Development Indicators, World Bank, 1999 Moreover, some countries with the same GNP/capita can have very different energy consumption per capita, which is the case, for example, in Russia, China, and Morocco. Their GNP/capita is approximately the same but energy consumption in Russia is four times higher than in China and fifteen times higher than in Morocco. 2, as far as the developing countries are concerned, is that the horizontal axis considers only commercial energy, which is the fraction of total energy consumption that can be quantified, since by definition it involves monetary transactions.

Almost every paragraph of the Implementation Plan contains the word “policy,” which means that in reality its implementation involves legal measures.
