Description

London, 15 June 2011: The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is considering revision of reporting guidelines for annual inventories of Parties included in Annex I to the Convention.

Various changes under consideration include suggestion by Australia, EU and Japan to exclude reporting of potential emissions of HFC, NF3, per fluoro carbon gases. EU and United States expressed views that the calculations need to be done to reflect The IPCC Fourth Assessment Report and the revised Global Warming Potential (GWP) values contained therein. Use of coal tar has been added as a secondary solid fuel and will now be a part of the national reporting.

The Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) at its Thirty-Fourth session at Bonn, 6–16 June 2011 considered the various opinions which have been generated from various Parties through a workshop held in Bonn, Germany, on 24–25 March 2011. The SBSTA was not able to reach a conclusion and have requested for a fourth workshop to be held in the second half of 2011, to address the revised UNFCCC Annex I reporting guidelines. The SBSTA recommended that the fourth workshop address the text of the revised guidelines, with a focus on agriculture, forestry and other land-use issues.
