National Greenhouse Gas Inventories in the Context of the UNFCCC

 Thelma Krug
Description: All Parties, taking into account their common but differentiated responsibilities and their specific national and regional development priorities, objectives and circumstances, shall: Develop, periodically update, publish and make available to the Conference of the Parties ... national inventories of anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks of all greenhouse gases not controlled by the Montreal Protocol, using comparable methodologies to be agreed upon by the Conference of the Parties. National greenhouse gas inventory data for the period 19902012. Note by the secretariat: FCCC/SBI/2014/20- Total aggregate GHG emissions excluding emissions and removals from land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) for all Annex I Parties decreased by 10.6 per cent. Total GHG emissions and removals including LULUCF decreased by 16.2 per cent. For Annex I Parties with economies in transition, GHG emissions excluding and including LULUCF decreased by 38.1 per cent and 49.7 per cent, respectively. For Annex I Parties that do not have economies in transition, GHG emissions excluding and including LULUCF increased by 1.9 per cent and 0.3 per cent, respectively. Interpretation Cancun, 2011: 2011 Cancun Agreements, para 4: Further recognises that deep cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions are required according to science, and as documented in the Fourth Assessment Report of the [IPCC], with a view to reducing global greenhouse gas emissions ... to hold the increase in global average temperature below 2 C ... and that Parties should take urgent action to meet this long- term goal, consistent with science and on the basis of equity; also recognizes the need to consider ... strengthening the long-term global goal on the basis of the best available scientific knowledge, including in relation to a global average temperature rise of 1.5 C. Prospects- Global emissions rising at 1.2% pa; slower than GDP (3.2%) but still rising, For 66% chance of ΔT <2C need to peak before 2020, then fall to about 40% of the present value, Existing pledges for emissions reductions by 2020 less than half the requirement to close the gap, Technically feasible but no chance of success without greater ambition via a new treaty with effective action from all countries.
