Dominica, with a population of 71,808 and an urban population of 50,830, accounting for approximately 70.79% of the total, has produced 158,529 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emission of 2.19 tons, indicating that each individual generates around 2 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of Dominica’s economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. This metric measures the amount of CO2 emissions, in kilograms, per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
In the case of Dominica, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.27 kg of CO2 per dollar, which is lower than both the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg).
This suggests that Dominica’s economic output is relatively less carbon-intensive compared to these two countries.
Dominica Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Dominica?
In 2022, Dominica’s total carbon dioxide emissions reached 158,529 metric tons. The primary contributor to these emissions was oil, accounting for the entire amount.
This highlights the significant reliance on oil in Dominica’s economy and its direct correlation with CO2 emissions.
The absence of emissions from coal, gas, cement, and flaring indicates a unique energy landscape in the country.
The correlation between these emissions and Dominica’s GDP remains unexplored.
