Total greenhouse gas emissions (% change from 1990)

The EDGARv4.3.2 emissions dataset are calculated for the three main greenhouse gases per sector and country. For the energy related sectors the activity data are mainly based on the energy balance statistics of IEA (2014). The figures presented here represent total greenhouse gas emissions between (1990 - 2012) for the Lower Mekong Countries.
