Starting Points for GHG Accounting of Developing Country Parties under the Paris Agreement

Starting Points for GHG Accounting of Developing Country Parties under the Paris Agreement

The Mexican division of the GIZ project Accounting Rules for the Achievement of the Mitigation Goals of non-Annex 1 countries has published a paper on “Starting Points for Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Accounting of Developing Country Parties under the Paris Agreement”.

 

This document presents the main background, the technical issues and the decisions applicable to GHG accounting in the context of the Paris Agreement, and the instruments for its implementation: The Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC). It also incorporates elements and lessons learned arising from the imple­mentation of the knowledge product. The document is divided into three main sections that address the context and technical elements, from the provisions of the Convention and the Protocol to those designed under the PA, whose applicability and enforcement are linked to the implementation of the NDC.

 

The project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety of Germany (BMUB) support this initiative based on a decision taken by the German Bundestag.
