Afghanistan Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1990-2023

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 2020 was 31,119.05, a 4.94% decline from 2019.
  • Afghanistan greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2019 was 32,736.77, a 0.48% increase from 2018.
  • Afghanistan greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2018 was 32,580.49, a 2.61% increase from 2017.
  • Afghanistan greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2017 was 31,750.55, a 2.87% increase from 2016.
