Botswana Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1970-2022

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).
  • Botswana greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2018 was 16,120.00, a 7.67% decline from 2017.
  • Botswana greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2017 was 17,460.00, a 28.57% increase from 2016.
  • Botswana greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2016 was 13,580.00, a 5.69% decline from 2015.
  • Botswana greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2015 was 14,400.00, a 2.44% decline from 2014.
