Sierra Leone 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).
  • Sierra Leone greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2012 was 11,810.89, a 0.68% increase from 2011.
  • Sierra Leone greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2011 was 11,731.17, a 0.72% increase from 2010.
  • Sierra Leone greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2010 was 11,647.49, a 33.48% decline from 2009.
  • Sierra Leone greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2009 was 17,509.10, a 47.08% decline from 2008.
