The Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, by its decision 13/CMP.1, requested the secretariat to begin publishing annual compilation and accounting reports after completion of the initial review under Article 8 of the Kyoto Protocol and resolution of any question of implementation. As at 15 September 2009, the initial review had been completed and questions of implementation, if any, resolved for 37 Parties to the Convention that are also Parties to the Kyoto Protocol with commitments inscribed in Annex B to the Kyoto Protocol (Annex B Parties). This document concerns these 37 Annex B Parties. The document provides final values for some of the key initial accounting parameters recorded in the compilation and accounting database after the completion of the initial review under Article 8.
