Afghanistan Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1990-2022

Total greenhouse gas emissions in kt of CO2 equivalent are composed of CO2 totals excluding short-cycle biomass burning (such as agricultural waste burning and Savannah burning) but including other biomass burning (such as forest fires, post-burn decay, peat fires and decay of drained peatlands), all anthropogenic CH4 sources, N2O sources and F-gases (HFCs, PFCs and SF6).
  • Afghanistan greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2019 was 28,640.00, a 3.43% increase from 2018.
  • Afghanistan greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2018 was 27,690.00, a 4.37% increase from 2017.
  • Afghanistan greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2017 was 26,530.00, a 1.34% decline from 2016.
  • Afghanistan greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2016 was 26,890.00, a 0.74% decline from 2015.
