Emissions by sector

The Emissions by sector domain of the FAOSTAT Agri-Environmental Indicators section contains data on emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) by gas, economic sector, country and year.

It also displays the shares of each sector in the total emissions of each gas (e.g. share of agriculture in total CH4 emissions) and the shares of each gas in the emissions from each sector (e.g. share of CH4 in the emissions from Agriculture). The data provided are based on FAOSTAT (FAO, 2016) for Agriculture total, Land Use sources and Forest, and on the EDGAR Database (JRC/PBL, 2016) for the other sectors. The aim of this domain is to provide a global database of reference data to support countries in addressing statistical data gaps and exploring policy-relevant emissions indicators
