What is tools are available to help in creating and updating a greenhouse gas inventory in my country?What greenhouse gas inventory datasets are available?What lessons learned and best practices are available for greenhouse gas inventory development?
- The materials contained in this CGE training package, on national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories, intends to provide the reader with the best possible synthesis of all the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) methodologies and tools available which could be of use for non-Annex I Parties and experts in the process of preparation of their national GHG inventories.
- This training programme is designed to specifically address the requirements for reviews of information submitted under Article 7 of the Kyoto Protocol.
- The 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories were produced at the invitation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to update the Revised 1996 Guidelines and associated good practice guidance which provide internationally agreed methodologies intended for use by countries to estimate greenhouse gas inventories to report to the UNFCCC.
- The handbook was developed by United Nations Development Programme with input from a wide range of institutions and national experts from AnnexI and non- AnnexI Parties. The objective of the handbook is to provide non-AnnexI Parties with a strategic and logical approach to a sustainable inventory process.
- This workshop has been organized annually since 2003 to improve inventories by information exchange in the region.
- The Land Change Modeler is revolutionary land cover change analysis and prediction software with tools to analyze, measure and project the impacts of such change on habitat and biodiversity.
- The DDC provides climate, socio-economic and environmental data, both from the past and also in scenarios projected into the future. Technical guidelines on the selection and use of different types of data and scenarios in research and assessment are also provided."
- The Climate Analysis Indicators Tool (CAIT) is an information and analysis tool on global climate change developed by the World Resources Institute. CAIT provides a comprehensive and comparable database of greenhouse gas emissions data (including all major sources and sinks) and other climate-relevant indicators. CAIT can be used to analyze a wide range of climate-related data questions and to help support future policy decisions made under the Climate Convention and in other fora.
- EFDB is meant to be a recognised library, where users can find emission factors and other parameters with background documentation or technical references that can be used for estimating greenhouse gas emissions and removals.
