EPA-GHG Inventory Targeted Data Collection Strategies and Software Tools
"U.S. EPA's approach is to assist countries in identifying priority sectors and sources, and in developing strategies for moving to higher tier methods. There are two general parts to this approach:
- Identification of data needs and strategies: U.S. EPA has worked with national experts to identify critical data needs for higher Tier IPCC methods, and to prioritize these needs to recognize available resources.
- Software tools: U.S. EPA has prepared software tools for the Agriculture, Land-Use Change and Forestry, and Solid Waste sectors that simplify the task of completing a GHG inventory."
