Annual Report 2023 for Carbon Dioxide Emission Accounts of Global Emerging Economies

This year marks the third edition of the Report for CO2Emission Accounts of Global Emerging Economies. As a significant reference for energy consumption and CO2 emissions, this report provides robust data support and guidance for the low-carbon transition of these emerging economies. In the new report, the Carbon Emission Accounts and Datasets for Emerging Economies (CEADs) continue to monitor the developments in energy consumption and carbon emissions in emerging economies, expanding the scope of data and delving deeper into emission accounting methods to provide more valuable data for low-carbon development. Building upon the previous year’s efforts, we continue to update and refine the CO2 emission inventories of emerging economies, offering the detailed analysis for changes of CO2 emissions in emerging economies across Asia, Africa, Latin America, Oceania, and Europe. Every emerging economy covers information, such as primary energy consumption, characteristics of fossil fuel emissions, and sectoral emission contribution. We believe that through continuous updates and improvements, this report will become increasingly accurate and make a greater contribution to global efforts to address climate change.

This report was jointly prepared by scholars from Tsinghua University, Shandong University, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, Tianjin University, University College London, the University of Birmingham, and other research institutions around the world. We are especially grateful to CEADs’ Scientific Steering Committee for its guidance and assistance. We would also like to express our gratitude to two projects for supporting and funding this report: the International Cooperation of Science and Technology to Address Climate Change and Sustainable Development under the Carbon Neutral Target, run by the Department of International Cooperation of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China; and Changes in Atmospheric Composition and Climate and Environmental Impacts, run by the National Natural Science Foundation of China. We would like to thank the Administrative Center for China's Agenda 21, Ministry of Science and Technology for supporting the preparation of this report. If there are any inaccuracies in this report, readers are invited to criticize and correct them.

The CEADs research team is committed to developing a multi-scale, uniform, full-caliber, transparent, verifiable, long time series, spatially precise carbon emission accounting list for the more than 150 developing countries worldwide. It also aims to continuously improve the timeliness of data from these countries. Towards these goals, CEADs continues to expand the number of carbon emission inventories of emerging economies by means of data crowdfunding to improve the reliability and robustness of data.
