    Building National Capacity to Measure, Report and Verify Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Thailand’s Forest and Land Use Sector - UTF/THA/034/THA 2021

    No results found.

    The Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has adopted a forestry greenhouse gas (GHG) emission mitigation mechanism known as “REDD+”, which will provide positive incentives to developing countries to voluntarily reduce their rates of deforestation and forest degradation and increase their forest carbon stocks, as part of a post 2020 global climate change agreement reached at COP 21 in Paris in 2015 (the “Paris Agreement”). The objective of the project was to support Thailand, in particular the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, in establishing a Forest Reference Emission Level (FRL) for REDD+, as well as a Measurement, Monitoring and Reporting (MMR) component of the National Forest Monitoring System (NFMS).

    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: Colombia 2016
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Colombia has submitted two national communications (NCs 2001, 2010) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), providing information on greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories, and measures to mitigate and facilitate adequate adaptation to climate change, among other information. In 2015, Colombia also presented its First Biennial Update Report (BUR), including the REDD+ technical annex. In 2010 and 2012, GHG emissions from the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU ) sector contributed to respectively 58 % and 43% 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 provided support to Ecuador for the preparation and reporting of the national GHG inventory (NGHGI), AFOLU component, to the UNFCCC. This brief relates the implemented activities and fruitf ul collaboration that were fundamental in assisting Ecuador in successfully meeting its commitments to the UNFCCC reporting process for the Agriculture and LULUCF sectors.

    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.
