Greenhouse Gas Inventory Data
 

The ultimate objective of the Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC) is to achieve "... stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate sytem."

Estimating the levels of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals is an important element of the efforts to achieve this objective. This web page provides access to most recent data on national GHG emissions and removals as follows:

  • GHG Data - UNFCCC: this page is an entry to the UNFCCC GHG data interface which provides access to the most recent GHG data reported by countries that are Parties to the Climate Change Convention
  • KP Data - UNFCCC: this is a page with GHG data relating specifically to the Kyoto Protocol; the data are as reported by Annex I Parties that are Parties to the Kyoto Protocol
  • GHG Data - Non-UNFCCC: this page provides links to the web sites of various organizations that also collect, estimate and/or disseminate data on GHG emissions/removals
  • Online Help: the help page contains extensive explanatory information to assist the user in finding the right GHG data
  • Contact: this page suggests an e-mail address that can be used to contact the UNFCCC secretariat for questions, clarifications or more information relating to GHG data
 
How to find the GHG data needed within the GHG data interface
 

The UNFCCC data interface provides a vast multitude of data. Data can be displayed for individual Parties or groups of Parties, for different greenhouse gases or for their sum, and in varying degrees of detail. To find the exact GHG data required, the user is advised to consult the following table where typical user requirements are mapped against the data availability on this site.

 
What's new

The UNFCCC secretariat released an update of the GHG Data Interface on 16 June 2014.

This update provides access to the latest GHG data received by the secretariat as of 28 May 2014, which includes the 2014 national GHG inventory submissions of all Annex I Parties, as well as information provided in recent submissions of national communications from 5 non-Annex I Parties (Djibouti, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Tunisia).

In this regard, the relevant GHG emissions profiles and the predefined queries under the 'Time-series - Annex I' section have been updated.

Projections data has been included in the Flexible Queries module of the data interface, for Parties who have reported this information in their common tabular format (CTF) tables.
