Total CO2 Emissions in Guinea: primary sources and correlation with GDP

Guinea, with a population of 12,771,246 and an urban population of 4,661,505, accounting for 0.365% of the total, has produced 4,841,779 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emission of 0.357805 tons, indicating that each person generates approximately 0.36 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 the case of Guinea, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.356267741026061 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.

Comparatively, this value is lower than that of the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg).

These figures highlight Guinea’s contribution to global CO2 emissions and provide insights into the country’s carbon footprint.
