Input-Ouput Analysis of the Key Sectors in Philippine Carbon Dioxide Emissions from a Production Perspective

Rachel C. Reyes

Discipline: Economics



The study computes the carbon dioxide emissions of the Philippines for the period of 2000 to 2006 and applies a production perspective input-output analysis to identify the key sectors whose value-added growth were responsible for the increase in emissions of the country and those that exhibited increased sectoral emissions from overall income growth. Power generation turned out to be the primary sector while cement manufacture, wholesale/retail trade, mining, road and water transport, and private services were revealed as the secondary sectors, jointly accounting for 0.66% increase in the country's emissions from a 1% growth in their value-added and experiencing 0.75% higher emissions from a 1% increase in the economy's income.
