CAIT - Country Greenhouse Gas Emissions Data

The CAIT Country GHG emissions collection applies a consistent methodology to create a six-gas, multi-sector, and internationally comparable data set for 186 countries. CAIT enables data analysis by allowing users to quickly narrow down by year, gas, country/state, and sector.

A recent visit to China offered a first-hand look at how WRI China is working with partners in Beijing, Chengdu, Qingdao and other cities to advance solutions that cut emissions while improving people's lives.

India ratified the Paris Agreement on October 2, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi. To date, 62 countries representing 51.89% of global emissions have joined the Paris Agreement.
