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

Madagascar, with a population of 26,969,307 and an urban population of 10,210,849, accounting for approximately 37.86% of the total, has produced 4,244,355 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emission of 0.146784 tons, indicating that each person generates around 0.15 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 Madagascar, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.301362057685826 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.

This figure is lower than that of the USA (0.3 kg) but higher than China (0.57 kg), suggesting that Madagascar’s economic activity has a relatively moderate impact on CO2 emissions.
