Samoa, with a population of 202,506 and an urban population of 35,588, accounting for 0.1757% of the total, has a GDP of $850,655,017. In 2022, the country produced 294,080 tons of CO2, resulting in a per capita emission of 1.3443 tons.
This means that each person generates approximately 1.34 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is essential to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In Samoa, the carbon intensity is 0.3457 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
This value is lower than that of China (0.57 kg) but higher than the USA (0.3 kg).
It indicates that Samoa’s economic activity has a moderate carbon footprint compared to these two countries.
Overall, Samoa’s CO2 emissions, both in total and per capita, are relatively lower compared to larger nations like China and the USA. However, the country’s carbon intensity of GDP suggests room for improvement in terms of reducing emissions associated with economic output.
