    Boosting the quality of the national greenhouse gas inventory in Togo 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Having submitted its Fourth National Communication and its second Biennial Update Report (BUR), Togo is committed to delivering under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) and intends to meet the 2024 deadline to prepare its first Biennial Transparency Report (BTR). However, lack of solid institutional arrangements, data and knowledge of ETF core requirements currently affect the country’s ability to prepare timely and quality national greenhouse gas inventories ( GHGIs). In order to tackle some of these bottlenecks and support countries to meet UNFCCC requirements under the ETF, FAO recently strengthened national capacities through a dedicated training programme on quality assurance/quality control of the GHGIs.

    Advancing Collect Earth Software Development to Support Countries in Reporting Greenhouse Gas Inventories - UNJP/GLO/1018/WMO 2024
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Within the framework of the UNFCCC, countries report data on GHG inventories at a national level. However, only a few countries currently have the capacities needed for data collection and analysis to ensure consistent and complete land representation of national GHG inventories. To assist countries in this task, FAO introduced Collect Earth, a software designed to aid countries in gathering data on land use activities. In collaboration with the IPCC, UNFCCC and WMO, FAO developed this project with the aim to further enhance the accuracy of activity data reporting for the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector. FAO and the IPCC agreed to develop a new software module that would enable countries to use the IPCC Inventory Software and the UNFCCC Enhanced Transparency Framework reporting tool in an interoperability mode, which will help improve the transparency and accuracy of national GHG data.

    Enhancing countries’ capacity to report to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change on greenhouse gas emissions for the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use sector: Ecuador 2016
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Ecuador has submitted two national communications (NCs 2000, 2012) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), providing information on greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories, and measures to mitigate and to facilitate adequate adaptation to climate change among other information. In 2016, Ecuador also presented its First Biennial Update Report (BUR), which included the REDD+ technical annex to the BUR. In 2010, GHG emissions from the Agriculture and the Land Use, Land Use C hange and Forestry (LULUCF) sectors contributed to respectively 18 % and 30% of the national GHG emissions. Since 2013, the United Nations Collaborative Programme on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries (UN-REDD) and the Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programmes have provide support to Ecuador for the preparation and reporting of the national GHG inventory (NGHGI), agriculture and LULUCF components, to the UNFCCC. This brief hi ghlights the implemented activities and fruitful collaboration that were fundamental in assisting Ecuador in successfully meeting its commitments to the UNFCCC reporting process for the Agriculture and LULUCF sectors.
