COP10 Side Event

2006 IPCC Guidelines
for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories

Date & Time: 18:00 - 20:00, Wednesday, 8 December 2004
Place: La Rural: Cardon

The existing IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories date back to 1996 with additional good practice guidance in 2000 and 2003. These guidelines are used by parties in their reporting to the convention. SBSTA 17 asked the IPCC to revise these guidelines and this work is now underway with the finished guidelines planned to be ready in 2006.

This event presents progress to date on the new 2006 guidelines. It highlighted areas and issues being addressed in the new guidelines that may be of interest to COP participants.
