Tanzania, with a population of 58,005,463 and an urban population of 20,011,885, accounting for 34.5% of the total, has produced 13,058,865 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 0.205 tons, indicating that each person generates approximately 0.2 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In Tanzania, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.207 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
This figure is higher than that of both the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg), indicating that Tanzania’s economic activity has a relatively higher carbon footprint.
In summary, Tanzania’s CO2 emissions in 2022 amounted to 13,058,865 tons, with a per capita emissions of 0.205 tons. The Carbon Intensity of GDP for Tanzania is 0.207 kg of CO2 per dollar, surpassing the figures for both the USA and China.
Tanzania Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Tanzania?
In 2022, Tanzania’s total CO2 emissions reached 13,058,865 metric tons. The primary contributors to these emissions were coal and oil, accounting for 1,983,202 and 6,468,557 metric tons respectively.
