Crude oil production

Oil production has increased by around 9%/year since 2011, reaching 4.7 Mt in 2016.

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Cameroon set an NDC (Nationally Determined Contribution) commitment of a 32% reduction in GHG emissions by 2035 compared to a reference scenario.

CO2 emissions from energy combustion have doubled over the last 10 years (7%/year). These emissions are rather low compared to other countries: 0.3 tCO2/inhabitant in 2016 compared to 0.7 tCO2/inhabitant on average for the Sub-Saharan Africa ...
