loped to help the country meet the requirements of the International Convention on Climate Change.
The info in this database provides important guidance for policy-makers in their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change.
It shows that the key emitting sectors in the country are: energy, industry, waste, agriculture, forestry, and transport.
The inventory clearly indicates the proportion of emissions produced by each sector of the economy— information invaluable for prioritizing efforts and designing technical solutions to reduce GHGs. The scope of the inventory is unprecedented, introducing emissions calculations for a number of important sub-sectors for the first time in the country—including the aviation sector.
As a signatory of the UN Convention on Climate Change, the country has an obligation to compile an inventory of greenhouse gas emissions as part of the National Communications it regularly submits to the UNFCCC Secretariat. These Communications must include a database of direct and indirect emissions for each period reported.
UNDP has been providing support to help the Government meet this obligation since 2000.
