Angola, with a population of 31.8 million and an urban population of 21.1 million, accounting for 66.18% of the total, has a GDP of $94,635,415,870. In 2022, the country produced 21,362,717 tons of CO2, resulting in a per capita emission of 0.62 tons.
This means that, on average, each person generates approximately 0.62 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. For Angola, this measure stands at 0.23 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
Comparatively, Angola’s carbon intensity is lower than that of the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg).
These figures highlight Angola’s efforts in managing its carbon emissions and demonstrate a relatively lower carbon intensity compared to other major economies.
Angola Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Angola?
In 2022, Angola’s total CO2 emissions reached 21,362,717 metric tons. The primary sources of these emissions were oil, accounting for 13,901,716 metric tons, and flaring, with 3,385,974 metric tons.
While gas contributed 2,951,298 metric tons, cement made a smaller contribution of 1,123,730 metric tons.
Notably, coal emissions were absent.
These figures highlight the significant correlation between oil production and CO2 emissions in Angola, reflecting the country’s heavy reliance on this sector.
What fraction of world fossil co2 emissions does Angola accounts?
Angola is the 85th largest emitter of CO2 in the world. It represents 0.058% of global CO2 emissions.
