This page provides access to some of the key accounting information recorded in the compilation and
accounting database (CAD) of the UNFCCC with maximum flexibility in searching and retrieving data
through user-defined data queries. Data are provided for the 38 Annex I Parties to the Convention

- Accounting parameters
- Total GHG emissions from sources listed in Annex A of the Kyoto Protocol (Annex A sources)
- Emissions and removals from LULUCF activities (Articles 3.3 and 3.4 of the Kyoto Protocol)
- Holdings of Kyoto Protocol units
Data on GHG emissions from Annex A sources and net emissions/removals from LULUCF activities are
available for the first and second years of the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol. A
cumulative sum of data submitted by Parties within the commitment period is also available. For
holdings of Kyoto Protocol units, data are available for the beginning and end of the reported year.
for example, in 2011, data on the status of holdings of Kyoto Protocol units is provided for the
beginning and end of 2010.
