Abstract
The UNFCCC secretariat supports the preparation of high quality inventories by Parties and facilitates analyses of information on GHG emissions and removals. The secretariat:
• Imports, processes and archives in a central database GHG emissions data submitted by Parties
• Organizes the annual review of Annex I Party inventories
• Provides authoritative information on GHG emissions and trends for the COP, subsidiary bodies, and the public.

The secretariat’s efforts to provide credible and authoritative GHG information for the UNFCCC process is dependent on the preparation and reporting of high quality GHG inventories at the national level and on the on-going support of the secretariat by Parties.
