Abstract
According to decisions 13/CMP.1 and 3/CMP.10, each Party included in Annex I with a commitment inscribed in Annex B to the Kyoto Protocol (Annex B Party) shall submit to the secretariat prior to 2 January 2016 a report upon expiration of the additional period for fulfilling commitments for the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol (hereinafter referred to as the true-up period report). The true-up period report, prepared individually for each Annex B Party, aims to facilitate the assessment of whether the aggregate anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions for the first commitment period exceed the quantities of Kyoto Protocol units valid for the first commitment period in the retirement account of that Party. The individual review of the initial true-up period report submission of Ukraine was conducted in 2016 by an expert review team in accordance with Article 8 of the Kyoto Protocol. The review report contained two questions of implementation, which were subsequently considered by the Compliance Committee. The enforcement branch of the committee concluded that Ukraine was not in compliance with the reporting requirements, but could not determine whether the Party was not in compliance with its commitment under Article 3, paragraph 1, of the Kyoto Protocol. On the basis of a recommendation from the Compliance Committee, the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP), at its twelfth session, encouraged the efforts of Ukraine to formally demonstrate compliance with its commitment under Article 3, paragraph 1, of the Kyoto Protocol, and requested the secretariat to make, on an exceptional basis, the necessary arrangements to enable the Party to do so by CMP 13 (November 2017), taking into account the recommendations set out in chapter III.B of the annual report of the committee to the CMP. This report presents the results of the individual review of the resubmitted true-up period report submission of Ukraine conducted by an expert review team in accordance with Article 8 of the Kyoto Protocol.
