Total CO2 Emissions in Cape Verde: primary sources and correlation with GDP

Cape Verde, with a population of 483,628 and an urban population of 364,029, accounting for approximately 75.27% of the total, has produced 667,694 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emission of 1.14 tons, indicating that each individual generates around 1.14 tons of CO2 annually.

To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is valuable to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In Cape Verde, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.34 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.

This figure is lower than that of China (0.57 kg) but higher than that of the USA (0.30 kg).

These statistics shed light on Cape Verde’s CO2 emissions, highlighting the country’s efforts in managing and reducing its carbon footprint.
