We would like to share with you a series of resources aimed to support you in developing a GHG emissions inventory. Gathered from multiple organizations, these selections provide you with a basic set of literature that covers emissions inventories. This list will be a running series, and suggestions and additions are welcome in the comment section below.
A few we would like to highlight include:
Drawing on lessons learned from more than 10 jurisdictions including Chile, China, Germany, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, and the US, the report provides guidance on how to design, develop, and implement data management systems that support industry greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting programs. We understand that this is not entirely specific to cities, but could still be a very useful resource for data collection and integration. We welcome any thoughts on this paper, or the subject in general if you have them.
The EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook (formerly called the EMEP CORINAIR emission inventory guidebook) provides guidance on estimating emissions from both anthropogenic and natural emission sources. It is designed to facilitate reporting of emission inventories by countries to the UNECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution and the EU National Emission Ceilings Directive.
The e-Learning course on Cities and Climate Change Leadership will serve as an introductory course providing an overview of basic concepts, policies, institutions and financial instruments for use by cities. Its overall objective is to encourage city leaders and decision makers to undertake climate actions suitable to local needs.
Thank you very much
