    Enhancing the value and sustainability of the greenhouse gas inventory archive in Papua New Guinea 2022
    Also available in:

    Each greenhouse gas inventory (GHGI) cycle presents an opportunity to improve the overall inventory process. To do so, information should be managed and stored in a way that ensures adequate data archiving and accessibility. This will reduce the risk of losing information, improve processes, and enhance their overall sustainability. This case study focuses on the main challenges and steps to design and implement GHGI archiving procedures for better management of information, which can help countries meet the reporting requirements related to GHG inventories and associated transparency.

    Aiming to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change, in 2015 Parties adopted the Paris Agreement, and through it established an enhanced transparency framework (ETF). Countries are now actively engaged in establishing the necessary arrangements to implement the ETF. A series of rules known as modalities, procedures and guidelines (MPGs, Dec. 18/CMA.1) were established to operationalize the ETF. A GHG inventory (GHGI) is a collection of estimates of GHG emissions and removals that are key for understanding countries' contribution to climate change and are fundamental for the tracking of Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) implementation and progress. To ensure that countries can report on the GHG emissions and removals every two years, it is fundamental to set up adequate institutional arrangements and define a well structured archiving system. In addition, the MPGs indicates that each Party shall report on its archiving of all information. This is a step-by-step guidance that helps countries to define the structure for the archiving system and appropriate procedures for archiving inventory data and information, preventing the loss of information and facilitating the preparation of future GHG inventories.

    The LoGIc tool for developing land representation for national greenhouse gas inventories
    Technical guide version 1.4.en.1

    Parties to the Paris Agreement are required to submit their national inventory report of anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, in accordance with the modalities, procedures and guidelines for the transparency framework for action and support. The guidelines require all countries to report their GHG emissions/removals estimates separately for the land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) sector, using the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. To develop the LULUCF GHG inventory, the land representation information is of utmost importance. This is because it provides the area information for estimating associated carbon stock changes and non-CO2 emissions. While countries can obtain data on land-use classification by using remote sensing information, there is still the need to appropriately process this information to develop a consistent land representation. The LoGIc tool was designed to help governments, national experts and GHG inventory practitioners in developing the land representation, in accordance with the newly adopted common reporting tables for submitting the inventory to the UNFCCC.
