The aim of this study is to analyze the issue of environmental degradation in Algeria during the period 1972-2021 by measuring the impact of economic growth, represented by GDP per capita, international trade, energy depletion, population growth rate and urbanization, on the damage caused by carbon dioxide emissions, using the model of Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL). In addition, the study variables were subject to various standard tests. The model presented significant statistics, with a long-term equilibrium. One of the most important findings of this study is that the approach adopted in Algeria aimed at raising the rate of economic growth is increasingly contributing to the negative impact on the environment.
