Methodological issues relating to emissions from international aviation and maritime transport. Note by the secretariat.
The International Civil Aviation Organization and the International Maritime Organization organized two expert meetings to address methodological issues relating to the estimation and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from international aviation and maritime transport. Participants at both meetings considered the methodologies in the Revised 1996 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories and in the IPCC Good Practice Guidance and Uncertainty Management in National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. They concluded that it is possible to improve the accuracy and monitoring of GHG emissions from international aviation and maritime transport and identified areas for improvement that could be considered by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its work on the development of the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. This document discusses issues for further consideration that may assist national GHG inventory experts to improve their estimates of GHG emissions from these two international transport activities.
