What is tools are available to help in creating and updating a greenhouse gas inventory in my country?

UNFCCC GHG Inventory Methodological Documents and Training Materials

The materials contained in this CGE training package, on national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories, intends to provide the reader with the best possible synthesis of all the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) methodologies and tools available which could be of use for non-Annex I Parties and experts in the process of preparation of their national GHG inventories.

UNFCCC GHG Inventory Review Training Program

This training programme is designed to specifically address the requirements for reviews of information submitted under Article 7 of the Kyoto Protocol.

IPCC National GHG Inventory Program

The 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories were produced at the invitation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to update the Revised 1996 Guidelines and associated good practice guidance which provide internationally agreed methodologies intended for use by countries to estimate greenhouse gas inventories to report to the UNFCCC.

US EPA GHG Inventory Targeted Data Collection Strategies and Software Tools

US EPA GHG Inventory Capacity Building

UNDP-UNEP-GEF National Communication Support Programme (NCSP) Manual on Managing the Greenhouse Gas Inventory Process

The handbook was developed by United Nations Development Programme with input from a wide range of institutions and national experts from AnnexI and non- AnnexI Parties. The objective of the handbook is to provide non-AnnexI Parties with a strategic and logical approach to a sustainable inventory process.

NIES Workshop on GHG Emissions in Asia

This workshop has been organized annually since 2003 to improve inventories by information exchange in the region.

USDA and USFS Tools for Forest Carbon Inventory Management and Reporting

IDRISI Land Change Modeler

The Land Change Modeler is revolutionary land cover change analysis and prediction software with tools to analyze, measure and project the impacts of such change on habitat and biodiversity.

What greenhouse gas inventory datasets are available?

UNFCCC GHG Inventory Data

IPCC Data Distribution Centre

The DDC provides climate, socio-economic and environmental data, both from the past and also in scenarios projected into the future. Technical guidelines on the selection and use of different types of data and scenarios in research and assessment are also provided."

Climate Analysis Indicators Tool

The Climate Analysis Indicators Tool (CAIT) is an information and analysis tool on global climate change developed by the World Resources Institute. CAIT provides a comprehensive and comparable database of greenhouse gas emissions data (including all major sources and sinks) and other climate-relevant indicators. CAIT can be used to analyze a wide range of climate-related data questions and to help support future policy decisions made under the Climate Convention and in other fora.

IPCC Emission Factor Database

EFDB is meant to be a recognised library, where users can find emission factors and other parameters with background documentation or technical references that can be used for estimating greenhouse gas emissions and removals.
