Overview of the synthesis report on submissions from Parties on the views on the common tabular format

SBSTA Workshop on common reporting format for the “UNFCCC biennial reporting guidelines for developed country Parties”

Bonn, Germany, 11-12 October, 2012

background
Background
  • Mandate: SBSTA 36
    • Invited Parties to submit, their views by 13 August on the common tabular format ;
    • Requested secretariat:
      • to compile the submissions from Parties into a miscellaneous document (FCCC/SBSTA/2012/MISC.11, Add.1, Add.2)
      • to prepare a synthesis report of Parties submissions (FCCC/SBSTA/2012/INF.4);
      • to organize a workshop in October 2012 (11-12 October, Bonn).
background1
Background
  • Views were provided by 7 Parties
background2
Background
  • Matters addressed in Parties submissions
    • Information on GHG emissions and trends;
    • Quantified economy-wide emission reduction target;
    • Progress in achieving the quantified economy-wide emission reduction target;
    • Projections of GHG;
    • Provision of financial, technological and capacity-building support to developing country Parties.
approach
Approach
  • Focus of the synthesis report
    • Broad principles for the development of a CTF;
    • Specific Parties proposals under separate paragraphs of the reporting guidelines
    • Summary of Parties’ views by:
      • highlighting the common trends
      • noting areas where these views differ
      • identifying possible options for a CTF.

The options for CTF share many common elements and could be easily combined.

approach1
Approach
  • Principles for development of a common tabular format as emphasized in Parties’ submission
    • Consistency with the biennial reporting guidelines;
    • Consistency, where appropriate, with the UNFCCC reporting guidelines on national communications;
    • The use the information already reported in the annual GHG inventories and national communications;
    • Enhanced transparency compared with the current reporting requirements;
    • Clarity and simplicity in the structure of the reporting the CTF information 
ghg emissions and trends
GHG emissions and trends
  • Common views on:
    • The use of GHG inventories as a basis;
    • Coverage of gasses and sectors;
  • Different views on:
    • Timeframe for summary of GHG emissions.

progress mitigation actions
Progress: mitigation actions
  • Common views on:
    • Using the UNFCCC national communication reporting guidelines (table 1. Summary of policies and measures by sector):
      • Name of policy and measure;
      • Objective and / or activity affected;
      • GHG effected;
      • Type of instrument;
      • Status of policy and measure;
      • Implementing entity or entities;
      • Estimate of mitigation impact by gas.
  • Different views on:
    • Flexibility for the timeline to report the impacts of policies and measures;
    • Level of disaggregation of mitigation actions;
    • Estimate of progress in implementation.

progress emission reductions
Progress: emission reductions
  • Common views:

Emissions reductions for the base year:

      • total GHG emissions, excluding emissions and removals from the LULUCF sector;
      • emissions and/or removals from the LULUCF sector based on the accounting approach applied taking into consideration any relevant decisions of the COP and the activities and/or lands that will be accounted for;
      • total GHG emissions, including emissions and removals from the LULUCF sector.

Emissions reductions for each reported year: information on the use of units from market-based mechanisms.

  • Different views on:
    • The level of detail on the units from market-based mechanisms;
    • The level of detail on the reporting of the GHG emissions/removals from LULUCF sector;
    • The years to be reported.

projections variables and assumptions
Projections: variables and assumptions
  • Common views onreporting:
    • Similarly to table 2 of the National communication guidelines:
      • Variables (i.e. GDP growth, world oil prices);
      • Historic and projected in 5 year intervals.
  • Single option based on National communication guidelines with updated timeline for historic (1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2010, 2011) and projected emissions (2015, 2020, 2025, 2030).
  • Some Parties highlighted possibility to select variables relevant to the modelling tools used.

projections scenarios
Projections: scenarios
  • Common views on reporting:
    • “With measures” scenario;
    • The latest reported year;
    • Projected years: 2020, 2030;
    • Disaggregation by sector (pre-defined/not pre-defined).
  • Different views on:
    • the number of the scenarios to be reported on a mandatory basis (only “with measures” or also “without measures” and “with additional measures”);
    • the time frame for GHG projections;
    • whether disaggregation by gas should be reported .
