References to non-UNFCCC data sources

To find an estimate for global CO2 and GHG emissions, and/or estimates for the shares of Annex I and non-Annex I Parties in global emissions

The UNFCCC secretariat does not make estimates of global CO2 and GHG emissions, because the requirements for reporting GHG data are different for Annex I and non-Annex I Parties. For such data, other organizations can be consulted, see the links provided in the column to the right.
