Electronic version available
The Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, by 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. The secretariat published the first report in 2008, which contained the initial accounting parameters. Since 2009, the report, in addition to the key initial accounting parameters, has also contained information on: (a) total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the sources listed in Annex A to the Kyoto Protocol; (b) 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, of the Kyoto Protocol; and (c) transactions and holdings of Kyoto Protocol units. Part of the information contained in this report is based on final data recorded in the compilation and accounting database; the rest of the information is based on the 2012 annual submissions of 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 as at 22 October 2012, the values of which are provisional. The final values will be made available upon completion of the annual review for 2012 and resolution of any questions of implementation
