Syria, with a population of 17 million and an urban population of 9 million, accounting for 54.82% of the total, has a GDP of $40,405,006,007. In 2022, the country produced 27,000,770 tons of CO2, resulting in a per capita emission of 1.27 tons.
This means that, on average, each person generates approximately 1.27 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. For Syria, this figure stands at 0.67 kg of CO2 per dollar, higher than both the USA (0.3kg) and China (0.57).
This indicates that Syria’s economic output produces a relatively higher amount of CO2 emissions per unit of GDP compared to these countries.
These statistics highlight the importance of addressing CO2 emissions in Syria and implementing measures to reduce carbon intensity. By focusing on sustainable practices and adopting cleaner technologies, the country can work towards mitigating its environmental impact and promoting a greener future.
