Bosnia and Herzegovina, with a population of 3,301,000 and an urban population of 1,605,144, accounting for approximately 48.63% of the total, has produced 13,566,311 tons of CO2 in 2022.
This translates to a per capita CO2 emission of 4.15 tons, indicating that each individual generates around 4 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of the country’s economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.68 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
This figure is higher than that of both the United States (0.30 kg) and China (0.57 kg), suggesting that the country’s economic output is associated with a relatively higher level of CO2 emissions.
