Morocco, with a population of 36.91 million and an urban population of 22.97 million, accounting for 62.24% of the total, has produced 70.577.665 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 1.90 tons, indicating that each individual generates approximately 1.9 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Morocco, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.59 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), indicating that Morocco’s economic activity has a moderate carbon intensity.
Morocco Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Morocco?
In 2022, Morocco’s total CO2 emissions reached 70,577,665 metric tons. The primary contributors to these emissions were coal and oil, accounting for 27,844,789 metric tons and 36,158,632 metric tons, respectively.
Gas emissions made a smaller contribution, totaling 1,573,744 metric tons, while cement emissions amounted to 5,000,500 metric tons.
Notably, there were no emissions from flaring.
These figures underscore the significant role of coal and oil in Morocco’s economy and their correlation with CO2 emissions.
