Emissions of carbon dioxide, in Africa and selected OECD countries

Year: 2006 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Africa represents only a small fraction, 3.6%, out of the total carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year, yet 14% of the population of the world lives here. The emissions per inhabitant in Libya, the Seychelles and South Africa are on the level of the lowest among OECD countries with the other African countries trailing lower behind them. Regionally, emissions (both per capita and in total) are at their highest in North Africa and in the country of South Africa.
