Maldives Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1970-2021

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).
  • Maldives greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 1998 was 351.80, a 4.16% increase from 1997.
  • Maldives greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 1997 was 337.75, a 2.01% decline from 1996.
  • Maldives greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 1996 was 344.68, a 0.33% increase from 1995.
  • Maldives greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 1995 was 343.53, a 31.8% increase from 1994.
