Togo, with a population of 8.08 million and an urban population of 3.41 million, accounting for 0.42 of the total, has a GDP of $5,459,979,417. In 2022, the country produced 2,342,020 tons of CO2, resulting in a per capita emission of 0.27 tons.
This means that each person generates approximately 0.27 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of Togo’s economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. Togo’s carbon intensity is measured at 0.43 kg of CO2 per dollar, which is higher than both the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg).
This indicates that Togo’s economic output produces a relatively higher amount of CO2 emissions per dollar compared to these countries.
Overall, Togo’s CO2 emissions, though relatively lower compared to larger nations, still contribute to the global carbon footprint. It is crucial for the country to continue exploring sustainable practices to mitigate its environmental impact and promote a greener future.
