GHG data: The secretariat has developed a data interface which provides access to the most
recent GHG data reported by countries that are Parties to the Climate Change
Convention, and other GHG data relating specifically to the Kyoto Protocol reported
by developed countries which have ratified the Kyoto Protocol.
The REDD Web Platform
publishes information submitted by Parties, relevant organizations and stakeholders
with the aim of sharing such information and experiences relating to REDD-plus.
Portal on cooperative initiatives: The secretariat has set up a
portal which presents
information on cooperative initiatives undertaken around the world at various levels
by governments, international organizations, civil society, and business to reduce
emissions. The portal features a database of cooperative initiatives accompanied by a
description and specifications of type, coverage, participation and other aspects of
Training materials: The secretariat developed the training
courses on the technical review of greenhouse gas inventories from developed
countries and reviews under Article 8 of the Kyoto Protocol. The training courses
are offered to the experts nominated to the roster of experts by their national focal
points. In addition to this, the CGE, under its work programme for 2010–2012,
training materials on national communications, which include: national GHG
inventories; V&A assessments; and mitigation assessment. These updated training
materials have been published for use by national experts involved in the preparation
of national communications and other interested stakeholders.
IPCC national GHG inventory guidelines: Both developed and
developing countries compiled their national GHG inventories on the basis of relevant
guidelines developed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Cooperation and support: The Convention has put in place several
mechanisms to assist developing countries with implementing mitigation action under
the Convention. Such mechanisms relate to finance, technology and
International institutions like the Global
Environment Facility, the green climate
fund and the national communication support
program also play an important role in supporting developing counties.
