CO2 emissions Sri Lanka 2020

CO2 emissions fall in Sri Lanka

In Sri Lanka, CO2 emissions during 2020 have fallen 2.082 megatons, 8.06% compared to 2019.

CO2 emissions in 2020 were 23.734 megatons, making Sri Lanka is the 103th conutry in the ranking of countries for CO2 emissions, made up of 184 countries, in which the countries are ranked from least to most pollutant.

In addition to its total emissions of CO2 into the atmospher, which logically depend, among other variables, on the country's population, it is convenient to analyze the behavior of its emissions per inhabitant. In the table we see that per capita CO2 emissions in Sri Lanka, have decreased in 2020, in which they have been 1.13 tons per inhabitant.

Finally, it is interesting to observe the behavior f CO2 emissions per 1000 dollars of GDP, which measures, for the same country, the "environmental efficiency" with which it is produced over time. In the last period, Sri Lanka, has emitted 0.09 kilos for every $ 1,000 of GDP, the same as in 2019.

In the table we can see the evolution of CO2 emissions, which have grown since 2010, as have per capita emissions and as well as CO2 emissions per $ 1,000 of GDP.

Total carbon dioxide emissions have also increased in the last five years, as have per capita emissions, then the situation continues to worsen.
