Carbon emissions are expected to grow at a slower rate in the future due to a sharp decrease in energy intensity though, simultaneously, GDP per capita is expected to increase strongly. Affluence is projected to be the single main contributor to carbon dioxide emissions in the future. Population growth is projected to decline. Yet, it will remain high compared to some of the other Asian countries. A decline in carbon intensity will continue to counterbalance the effects of the other factors, but less than in the past.

7. emissions from LUCF sector is assumed to be from non-Annex I (or developing) countries, largely through tropical deforestation. 1 Gt C) and as a percentage of global emissions (from 46 to 52%). Tropical deforestation contributes to 39% of non-Annex I emissions. This shows that the contribution of developing countries to global emissions is already higher and increasing. 2 Contribution of Industrialized and Developing Countries to Cumulative emissions during the Twentieth Century It is important to understand the contribution of industrialized countries, particularly North American and European countries, to cumulative emissions, and compare it to the emissions from developing countries between 1900 and 1999, as this issue is at the core of the global debate on combating climate change.

An inter-country comparison of carbon emissions trends and the contributing factors concludes the chapter. 2 REGIONAL AND COUNTRY-SPECIFIC EMISSIONS In Chapter 2, we saw that the energy sector contributes to the bulk of carbon dioxide emissions, worldwide. 98 Gt in 1997 (IEA, 1999). 56 Gt in 1971, which equaled 38% of world carbon dioxide emissions. 1). , 1992). 6% annually that was recorded between 1971 and 1995. Future scenarios show a steady but slowing increase in emissions from developing countries.
