This report provides comprehensive, step-by-step guidance for policymakers and practitioners to design mandatory GHG reporting programs. Over the past decade, GHG reporting programs have emerged at the regional, national, and subnational levels to provide information on emission sources and trends. This report draws on the experience of 13 existing and proposed programs to highlight the major design elements of a reporting program and discuss various factors influencing decisions under each element. An attempt has been made to identify design options and provide practical recommendations while recognizing that reporting programs are context specific. Although the emphasis is on the design of a mandatory reporting program, many aspects of the report are relevant for developing voluntary programs.
