Total CO2 Emissions in Fiji: primary contributors and correlation with GDP

Fiji, with a population of 889,953 and an urban population of 505,048, accounting for 0.57% of the total, has a GDP of $5,535,548,972. In 2022, Fiji produced 1,470,402 tons of CO2, resulting in a per capita emission of 1.59 tons.

This means that each person generates approximately 1.59 tons of CO2 annually.

To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. Fiji’s 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 indicates that Fiji’s economic output produces fewer CO2 emissions per dollar compared to these countries.

In summary, Fiji’s total CO2 emissions in 2022 amounted to 1,470,402 tons, with a per capita emission of 1.59 tons. The country’s Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.27 kg of CO2 per dollar, demonstrating its relatively lower carbon intensity compared to the USA and China.

How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Fiji?

In 2022, Fiji’s total CO2 emissions amounted to 1,470,402 metric tons. The primary contributor to these emissions was oil, accounting for the entire amount.

This highlights the significant reliance on oil in Fiji’s economy and the resulting emissions of CO2.

However, it is important to note that there were no emissions from coal, gas, cement, or flaring in Fiji during this period.

The correlation between these emissions and Fiji’s GDP remains to be explored.

What fraction of world fossil co2 emissions does Fiji accounts?

Fiji is the 166th largest emitter of CO2 in the world. It represents 0.004% of global CO2 emissions.
