The National Greenhouse Gas Inventory System (NIS) Curriculum was developed to help countries implement a series of activities to build their institutional capacity to develop high quality national GHG inventories on a regular basis. By developing a system to sustainably prepare national GHG inventories, a government can design and implement a more effective process for conducting regular national inventories, better understand the causes of national GHG emissions and removals, understand trends and more accurately forecast future emissions, and better identify cost-effective policies and programs to reduce emissions.
This Curriculum can be used by an expert GHG inventory trainer to prepare inventory team participants to:
• Build a sustainable national GHG inventory system that follows the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) guidelines and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) guidelines;
• Build institutional capacity for developing and implementing a national GHG inventory system that is transparent, accurate, complete, consistent, and comparable;
• Establish a regional community of practice for GHG inventory practitioners; and
• Strengthen GHG inventory system quality by creating and implementing prioritized action plans.
