In accordance with decision 13/CMP.1, the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP) requested the secretariat to begin publishing the annual compilation and accounting reports referred to in paragraph 61 of the annex to that decision after completion of the initial review under Article 8 of the Kyoto Protocol and resolution of any questions of implementation relating to adjustments under Article 5, paragraph 2, of the Kyoto Protocol, or its assigned amount pursuant to Article 3, paragraphs 7 and 8, of the Kyoto Protocol.
The secretariat published the first compilation and accounting report in November 2008 containing the initial accounting parameters recorded in the compilation and accounting database (CAD) as at 18 September 2008 after the completion of the initial review under the Kyoto Protocol by expert review teams (ERTs) and the resolution of any questions of implementation. The annual reports for future years will include detailed information on holdings and transactions of Kyoto Protocol units as such information becomes available.
Please note that due to the ongoing upgrade of the Data Interface (undertaken to reflect the changes related to the adoption of the revised reporting guidelines), the data for Annex I Parties currently contained in the GHG data interface are based on 2014 inventory submissions whereas the 2015 C&A report is based on the 2015 submissions data, for both the first and second commitment period, as of 09 November 2015.
Final Compilation and Accounting Report for the first commitment period
In accordance with decision 13/CMP.1, the CMP requested the secretariat to publish, after the commitment period and the additional period for fulfilling commitments, the final compilation and accounting reports referred to in paragraph 62 of the annex to that decision. The final compilation and accounting report for each Annex I Party with a commitment inscribed in Annex B to the Kyoto Protocol was prepared under the oversight of the expert review team that conducted the true-up period review. The final compilation and accounting report for the first commitment period for each Party are available here.
