REINFORCING STATISTICAL CAPACITY IN THE FIELDS

Energy issues are at the top of global
and local agendas because the energy
sector is critical to the growth of economies,
especially in the ESCWA region where it
contributes effectively, up to 60 percent
to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of
many of its countries. The world depends
largely on the oil and gas supply provided
by this region. In 2010, the ESCWA region
represented about 45 percent of the world
total oil resources, 26 percent of the
world total oil production, and six percent
of the world total oil consumption. It also
represented 26 percent of the world natural
gas resources, 12 percent of the world total
of natural gas production, and four percent
of total gas consumption. The average
energy consumption per capita was about
two tonnes of oil equivalent in 2010, which
is comparable to world average but it varied
highly among countries from a maximum of
16.7 tonnes of oil equivalent in Qatar to a
minimum of 0.3 in Yemen.
