Annual compilation and accounting report for Annex B Parties under the Kyoto Protocol for 2010. Note by the secretariat.
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 18 October 2010, the initial review had been completed and questions of implementation, if any, resolved for 37 Parties included in Annex I 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 provides final values for some of the key initial accounting parameters for these 37 Annex B Parties. It also contains an overview of provisional information as reported by Parties in 2010 on: (1) total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the sources listed in Annex A to the Kyoto Protocol reported for 2008; (2) GHG emissions and removals from land use, land-use change and forestry activities under Article 3, paragraph 3, of the Kyoto Protocol, and elected activities under Article 3, paragraph 4, for 2008; and (3) transactions and holdings of Kyoto Protocol units as at 31 December 2009. The provisional information contained in this document is based on national GHG inventory submissions received as at 18 October 2010. Therefore, the latest information provided by Parties may not be reflected here. Final values will become available after completion of the annual review for 2010 and resolution of any questions of implementation
