Uganda 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).
  • Uganda greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2012 was 80,725.08, a 0.51% increase from 2011.
  • Uganda greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2011 was 80,318.97, a 0.52% increase from 2010.
  • Uganda greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2010 was 79,906.21, a 51.25% increase from 2009.
  • Uganda greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2009 was 52,830.35, a 40.78% decline from 2008.
