Nepal 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).
  • Nepal greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2018 was 51,240.00, a 3.35% increase from 2017.
  • Nepal greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2017 was 49,580.00, a 5.33% increase from 2016.
  • Nepal greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2016 was 47,070.00, a 7.79% increase from 2015.
  • Nepal greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2015 was 43,670.00, a 0.43% decline from 2014.
