Assess and improve the national greenhouse gas inventory and other economic and resource data as needed to complete the LEDS

From Open Energy Information

Stage 2

  • Stakeholder group and technical team should determine whether there are sufficient data available to develop business as usual (BAU) projections for the economy and development, energy demand and supply, land use, GHG emissions and future climate conditions.
  • Potential data sources
  • Economy and development:
  • Energy demand and supply, including projections for clean energy generation:
  • Land use:
  • To ensure that the landscape LEDS incorporates existing studies and actions already underway, stakeholder groups should begin with an initial review of:
  • Country-specific analyses and data related to forests, agriculture, land management, and climate issues (e.g., forest inventories, agricultural assessments, forest resource assessments, forest and terrestrial carbon inventories, deforestation-related studies, GHG emissions inventory, carbon supply curves, etc.)
  • Greenhouse gas emissions:
  • Future climate conditions:
  • Assess the current greenhouse gas inventory for completeness, accuracy, use of latest data.
  • Update inventory if needed to reach level necessary for BAU and LEDS modeling
  • Develop inventory improvement plan, inventory system design, and inventory system sustainability plan
  • Determine quality and availability of reliable and rigorous data for all relevant sources, sinks and sectors
  • Assess the monitoring system(s) for relevant sectors, including REDD/landscapes
National GHG inventory and other economic and resource data
  • GHG inventory report
  • GHG inventory improvement plan
  • GHG inventory system design and sustainability plan
  • Availability and quality of economic and resource status and use data
