    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:

    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.

    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: Costa Rica 2016
    Also available in:

    "Enhancing country capacity for UNFCCC reporting processes for the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use sector: Costa Rica" summarizes the support provided by FAO between 2013 and 2016 to the government of Costa Rica, through the Monitoring and Assessment of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Mitigation in Agriculture (MAGHG) project. Costa Rica was among the eighteen countries attending the Second FAO Workshop on Statistics for Greenhouse gas Emissions , held from 3 to 4 June 2013 in Port of Spai n, Trinidad and Tobago. It was organized by the Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programme. The aim of this workshop was to raise awareness of the importance of agricultural statistics for preparing national GHG inventories and planning national mitigation action, and to facilitate communication and exchange of relevant knowledge at national and regional level.

    From reference levels to results reporting: REDD+ under the UNFCCC
    2018 update
    2018
    Also available in:

    The aim of this publication is to inform countries about the latest developments in the Measurement, Reporting and Verification for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, and the role of sustainable management of forests, conservation and enhancement of forest carbon stocks, known as REDD+. It provides an update on forest reference (emission) levels (FREL/FRLs) and REDD+ results submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The report illustrates the choices that countries made when they constructed their FREL/FRLs and areas for improvement identified during technical assessments. The report also provides an update of the evolving context of REDD+, including a summary of the Green Climate Fund’s recently approved pilot programme for results-based payments for REDD+. As of early 2018, the following REDD+ measurement, reporting and verification milestones had been achieved: Thirty-four countries had submitted 38 FREL/FRLs to the UNFCCC for technical assessment. The UNFCCC had published 22 FREL/FRL technical assessment reports, and a further 16 technical assessments were ongoing. Four countries had reported REDD+ results to the UNFCCC through five REDD+ results submissions (in the REDD+ technical annex of their biennial update reports), totalling more than 6 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent in emission reductions, mostly in Brazil. All five technical analyses of REDD+ results had been completed. Eighty-eight percent of the countries that had submitted FREL/FRLs had completed or were establishing national forest inventories.
