Total greenhouse gas emissions (kt of CO2 equivalent)

The value for Total greenhouse gas emissions (kt of CO2 equivalent) in Niger was 11,461 as of 2012. As the graph below shows, over the past 42 years this indicator reached a maximum value of 11,461 in 2012 and a minimum value of 5,823 in 1973.

Definition: 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).

Total greenhouse gas emissions (% change from 1990)

The value for Total greenhouse gas emissions (% change from 1990) in Niger was 65.40 as of 2012. As the graph below shows, over the past 21 years this indicator reached a maximum value of 65.40 in 2012 and a minimum value of 3.38 in 1991.

Definition: Total greenhouse gas emissions 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). Each year of data shows the percentage change to that year from 1990.
