Bahrain, with a population of 1,501,635 and an urban population of 1,467,109, accounting for 97.7% of the total, has produced 39,016,088 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 26.66 tons, indicating that each person generates approximately 27 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In Bahrain, this measure stands at 1.01 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
Comparatively, Bahrain’s carbon intensity is higher than that of the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg), suggesting a greater environmental impact per unit of economic activity.
Bahrain Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Bahrain?
In 2022, Bahrain’s total CO2 emissions reached 39,016,088 metric tons. The primary sources of these emissions were gas, accounting for 34,595,877 metric tons, and oil, with 3,550,339 metric tons.
