Tajikistan, with a population of 9,321,018 and an urban population of 2,545,477, accounting for 0.273% of the total, has a GDP of $8,116,626,794. In 2022, the country produced 10,336,408 tons of CO2, resulting in per capita CO2 emissions of 1.06 tons.
This means that, on average, each person generates approximately 1 ton of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. Tajikistan’s Carbon Intensity of GDP is 1.27 kg of CO2 per dollar, higher than both the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg).
This indicates that Tajikistan’s economic output produces a relatively higher amount of CO2 emissions compared to these countries.
In summary, Tajikistan’s total CO2 emissions in 2022 amounted to 10,336,408 tons, with a per capita emission of 1.06 tons. The country’s Carbon Intensity of GDP, measuring CO2 emissions per dollar of economic output, is 1.27 kg, surpassing that of the USA and China.
Tajikistan Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Tajikistan?
In 2022, Tajikistan’s total CO2 emissions reached 10,336,408 metric tons. The primary sources of these emissions were coal, accounting for 5,184,992 metric tons, and oil, with 2,786,801 metric tons.
Gas contributed 311,116 metric tons, while cement made up 2,053,499 metric tons.
Notably, flaring did not contribute to the emissions.
These figures highlight the significant role of coal and oil in Tajikistan’s economy and their correlation with CO2 emissions.
