Date & Time: Thursday, 18 May, 13:00 - 15:00
Place: Hotel Maritim, Room Reger

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has completed the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories which was accepted by the panel at its 25th session on 27th April 2006.

The existing IPCC Inventory Guidelines date back to 1996 with additional Good Practice Guidance provided in 2000 and 2003. These guidelines are used by Parties in their preparation of national inventories of greenhouse gases. SBSTA 17 invited the IPCC to revise the guidelines and this work is now complete.

This event presented the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. It highlighted areas and issues in the new guidelines that may be of interest to SB 24 participants.
