Based on data in EPA's Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non—CO2 Greenhouse Gases report, in 2005, Colombia's estimated anthropogenic methane emissions ranked 21st in the world. Approximately 24 percent of its anthropogenic methane emissions—14.7 MMTCO2E—come from agriculture (manure management), coal mines, municipal solid waste, and natural gas and oil systems.
