Co2 emissions, energy imports, economic growth in pakistan: causality analysis


  • Muhammad Anees

    () (COMSATS Institute of Information Technology)


Following the most followed time series econometric methodology of ARDL and Granger causality, this paper will explore the relationships among the important energy market variables for Pakistan being a major importer of oil and energy products. It is expected that controlling for imports of oil and energy products, substituing furnace oil dependent energy production by hydral power houses, Pakistan can significantly contribute towards reduction of emission of CO2 to achieve global targets.
