LULUCF Data gap presentation Objective of the presentation is to reduce uncertainty of the Bhutanese GHG Inventory since it is one of the very few nations revealing carbon sequestration in its LULUCF Sector By Yeshey Penjor NEC, Bhutan
GHG Inventory problems of Bhutan Data Collection-Understanding of required data (PMT) Non-availability of Conversion factors and Emission factors Lack of public awareness on Climate Change issues
GHG Inventory contd…. Emissions and removal abstract CO2 (emissions) = 228.46, Vs CO2 (removals) = 3,549.52 Net sequestration= 3,321.05 Gg CH4 = 19.22, N 2 O = 2.13, NOx = 0.71 and CO = 2.29. * Per capita CO2 (removal) 3321/564,000x10 9 =5.888 t

LULUCF data problems Non-availability of Conversion factors and Emission factors Forestry terminology differences between IPCC Guidelines and available national data
Varying forestry terminology-For Annual Accumulation of dry matter biomass in plantations IPCC Guideline Tropical: Acacia Spp. Eucalyptus sp. Tectona grandis Pinus spp. Pinus Caribaea Mixed hardwoods Mixed fast growing H/ws mixed soft woods Temperate:Douglas fir Loblolly pine Bhutan Forest Inventory Sub-Tropical: Broad leaf forest Mixed broad leaf Chirpine Temperate: Conifer;Fir Cyprus Blue pine
Initial GHG Inventory Uncertainty Level of confidence Code number Energy, industry Agri., LULUCF High Medium Low 123123 <20% 20-50% >50% <30% 30-75% >75%
Is calculation of carbon sequestration due to forest regeneration in abandoned shifting cultivation correct?? Kadrinchey (Thank you for your attention)!
