legal basis
Legal basis
  • UNFCCC (in future KP)
    • Revised 1996 IPCC Manual on Inventories
    • Good Practise Guidance on Reporting and Uncertainty assessment
    • Guidelines on National Communications and annual inventories (FCCC/CP/2002/8, decision 18/CP.8)
  • EU
    • Council Decision 280/2004/EC on GHG Monitoring and the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol
    • Implementing Provisions (Commission Decision in preparation)
summary of ec council decision
Summary of EC Council decision
  • Monitoring the emissions of the six Kyoto greenhouse gases and removals by sinks,
  • Annual GHG inventory reporting by MS to the European Commission
  • Implementation and annual reporting of national programmes (including policies and measures) and emission projections to the Commission and
  • Evaluation of progress and reporting to the European Parliament and Council by the Commission
further elements
Further elements
  • Greenhouse gas inventory system (KP Art. 5.1)
  • Procedures for the review process and adjustments (KP Art. 5.2 and Art. 8)
  • Reporting on accounting of assigned amounts and national registries (KP Art. 7.1, 7.2 and 7.4)
  • Information to be incorporated in the periodic communications to the UNFCCC
  • Policies and measures and Projections
  • Reporting on flexible mechanisms (JI, CDM, IET) and sinks
  • Additional Reports

- Report on demonstrable progress

- Report on assigned amounts

  • Establishment of

- national systems (incl. Report) and

- registries

ec ghg inventory institutional arrangements
EC GHG inventory institutional arrangements
  • Member states prepare inventory according to UNFCCC Guidelines and participate in EC Climate Change Committee, assisted by two working groups
  • European Commission (DG ENV) responsible for submission to UNFCCC, assisted by EEA (and European Topic Centre Air and Climate Change, ETC/ACC) and the DGs of the European Commission ESTAT and JRC
  • Working group I of the Climate Change Committee promotes improvement of all GHG inventory quality aspects (transparency, consistency, comparability, completeness, accuracy and use of good practices)
  • Working group II of the Climate Change Committee promotes improvement of quality of reporting on GHG emission projections (transparency, consistency, comparability, completeness)
  • EC “National Inventory Report” follows UNFCCC Guidelines

activities for improving the monitoring mechanism
Activities for improving the Monitoring Mechanism
  • Eurostat improvement project for national energy balances and annual estimation of EC CO2 emissions (IPCC Reference Approach)
  • Data gap filling to achieve complete EC inventory (limited to few MS)
  • Workshop on LULUCF
  • Workshop on agricultural emissions
  • Workshop on Projections of GHG emissions
  • Workshop on GHG emissions from agriculture
  • Workshop on Energy balances and energy-related GHG emissions
  • Project on LULUCF emissions and removals
  • Workshop on Inverse Modelling
  • Project on N20-emissions from agricultural soils (ongoing)
  • Workshop on bunker fuels
next steps of the monitoring mechanism in the working groups of the climate change committee
Next steps of the Monitoring Mechanism (in the Working Groups of the Climate Change Committee)
  • Establishment of a QA/QC-plan
  • Determination of uncertainties of the inventory
  • Determination of uncertainties in the projections
  • Workshop on emissions from the waste sector
  • Workshop on demonstrable progress
  • Proper implementation of the GPG on LULUCF
