This webinar introduces participants to good practices identified by the World Resources Institute (WRI) during their four-year Measurement and Performance Tracking (MAPT) project, which helps enhance national capacities in developing countries to measure GHG emissions and track performance toward low-carbon development goals. The WRI analysis draws upon case studies authored by inventory experts from Brazil, Colombia, India, Mexico, and South Africa. The second presentation provides an overview of the National GHG Inventory System developed in South Africa.
This paper introduces the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (2006 Guidelines; IPCC 2006), summarizes the basic approach for inventory development, and provides guidance on their use. The 2006 Guidelines represent a significant step forward in producing reliable, accurate, consistent and comparable inventories of emissions and removals of GHGs. The 2006 Guidelines update earlier guidance, combine good practice guidance and new scientific and technical information on emissions and removals of GHGs. The guidelines provide methodologies for making estimates of national anthropogenic emissions and removals of GHG. These methodologies can be used to assist Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in fulfilling their commitments to develop inventories of anthropogenic emissions and removals of GHGs not controlled by the Montreal Protocol.
This presentation describes the components of a national inventory system, provides an introduction to the national systems templates developed by the U.S. EPA, and provides brief instruction on usage of each template.
This presentation was shared at the 12th workshop on GHG inventory in Asia (WGIA 12) during August 4-6, 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand. It provides an overview of GHG inventory concepts for national and local levels.
This presentation was shared at the Partnership for Market Readiness’s 3rd Regional MRV Technical Training during September 17-19, 2014 in Izmir, Turkey. It provides an overview and methodology of GHG inventories and reporting.
This presentation was given at the Asian Clean Energy Forum on June 6, 2016 at the Asian Development Bank in Manila, Philippines. It is based on the experience of developing the organizational GHG reporting program that the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Program (TGO) administers, and creating the program’s online GHG emissions reporting portal. It provides an overview of the program’s measurement, reporting, and verification guidelines, and is general enough to be applicable to entities that are considering establishing a similar program.
This guidebook offers step-by-step guidance for the identification of key stakeholders and establishment of participatory planning and coordination frameworks; generation of climate change profiles and vulnerability scenarios; identification and prioritization of mitigation and adaptation option; assessment of financing requirements; and development of low-emission climate resilient roadmaps for project development, policy instruments, and financial flows.
This is a comprehensive training that take users through the LEDS process. It provides step-by-step guidance for developing and implementing a long-term LEDS framework for continuous sustainable development cooperation, and presents a 6-step approach for LEDS development. The slides address barriers for low carbon investments, categories of economic incentives to consider, climate finance options, and steps for financing plan development.
This course is designed to equip policymakers and low emission development practitioners in the Asia region with an understanding of the LEDS process and its benefits. The course provides information on steps to design and implement climate resilient low emission development strategies and includes a compilation of tools and resources to assist countries in this process. This course also provides examples from countries around the world that are undergoing the formulation and implementation of their LEDS.
