Description:
In 2005 the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean accounted for only 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions, excluding emissions associated with land use changes. Between 1990 and 2005, such emissions in the region increased at an average annual rate of 2.3%, owing to a variety of economic, social and demographic factors. In percentage terms, 2005 emissions increased the region’s share of emissions by one percentage compared to 1990. Nevertheless, this share is lower than that of regions such as Europe, North America and China. It is worth noting that the European Union and the United States managed to reduce their share of global emissions in 1990-2005, while China registered an average annual increase of 4.8% for the period 1990-2005.
