Title: Sectoral performance and carbon dioxide emissions in Ghana
Authors: Zakaria, Mohammed Nazif
Issue Date: 19-Oct-2016
Abstract: This study investigated the effect of sectoral performance on carbon dioxide (〖CO〗_2) emissions in Ghana. It employed the use of annual time series data sourced from the World Bank’s World Development Indicators from 1974 to 2011. The ADF test proved all the variables to be stationary after first differencing except forest area (used as a proxy for climate change in the study) which assumes stationarity at the log level. There is an existence of co integration among the series. It found a statistically significant negative relationship between the service sector performance and 〖CO〗_2emissions. It also found the industrial and agricultural sectors performance to have a positive impact on 〖CO〗_2 emissions in the long-run but negative in the short-run.
