Global emissions of carbon dioxide, 2006

Year: 2010 Author: Nieves López Izquierdo, Associate Consultant UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The region of Latin America and the Caribbean is highly vulnerable to climate change despite the fact that it contributes relatively little to global greenhouse gas emissions. Thus, global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2006 (excluding those associated with land use changes) amounted to 38,754 million of metric tons of CO2 equivalent (MtCO2-e), with Mexico and Brazil being the main emitters in the region (WRI, 2010). The importance of Latin America and the Caribbean as a source of emissions can also be seen in per capita terms: the region as a whole emitted fewer tons of CO2 per inhabitant than the world average, notwithstanding the fact that some countries in the region exceeded that average.
