    Boosting capacity to improve the quality and sustainability of the national GHG inventory in Burkina Faso 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Burkina Faso is committed to delivering under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF), but it is hindered by organizational and technical constraints. Thanks to a successful strategy of coordination between state actors and international agencies, FAO has recently boosted the country’s technical capacities on the national GHG inventory to respond effectively to the requirements of the ETF, a process that can inspire other countries to walk a similar path in preparation for the first Biennial Transparency Report (BTR).

    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.

    Enhancing Senegal’s national greenhouse gas inventory archiving system 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The establishment of a well-organized and secured national greenhouse gases inventory’s archiving system is of paramount importance according to the Enhanced Transparency Framework, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and in general to the best practices of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Working to best prepare countries to address the transparency requirements, FAO has recently empowered Senegal towards improved archiving and proper management of greenhouse gas inventory (GHGI) data. The results of this process are presented here in order to encourage other countries in similar conditions to consider approaching FAO for tailored support while building their capacity to meet UNFCCC requirements under the ETF.
