GHG Inventory

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the organization under the United Nations, which provides the scientific, technical and socio economic information on climate change. The first set of guidelines was introduced in 1995, which was further revised in 1996 and is called the Revised 1996 IPCC guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. In the year 2006, the IPCC published the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories which provide updated emissions factors for certain activities based on latest available research. The resulting emission profile of the country provides GHG emissions divided per sector in terms of Giga grams (Gg), as well as tonne of CO2 equivalent.

There are five key sectors from the IPCC Guidelines, which are relevant to the activities within the UAE,
which have anthropogenic emissions. These include:
Energy
Industrial Process
Agriculture
Land Use Change and
Forestry (LULUCF)
Waste
