1 1 FTS Programme Activities Related to National Greenhouse Gas Inventories 1 st Meeting of the Reconstituted CGE Bonn, Germany, March 2010 Dominique Revet UNFCCC Financial and Technical Support (FTS) Programme

2 2A2A Outline 3 Main Activities to Assist NAI Parties: (1) Southeast Asia (SEA) Regional Project (Phase I to end in September/October 2010) (2) NAI GHG Inventory Software (Version 2.0 planned for release at SB 32) (3) Africa (Eastern and Southern) Regional Project (to be initiated in June 2010)

3 3A3A Major Issues and Concerns Various levels of technical expertise Inventory “systems” are functioning but unsustainable Teams are small; with limited resources and multiple responsibilities Difficulty in retaining people; work is not attractive Insufficient documentation of methods, activity data (AD), emission factors, and processes Lack of AD and non-representativeness of default EFs Weak institutional arrangements (for data sharing, etc.) Lack of tools to move to higher tiers The secretariat received requests for assistance to strengthen the capacity of countries to improve their national GHG inventories The secretariat received requests for assistance to strengthen the capacity of countries to improve their national GHG inventories General mandate included in Article 8, paragraph 2 (c) of the Convention, as recalled in Decision 17/CP.8, the UNFCCC secretariat will facilitate assistance to non-Annex I Parties General mandate included in Article 8, paragraph 2 (c) of the Convention, as recalled in Decision 17/CP.8, the UNFCCC secretariat will facilitate assistance to non-Annex I Parties

4 4A4A Catalytic Role of the Secretariat The UNFCCC secretariat plays a catalytic role in: - Addressing non-Annex I Parties’ requests for assistance - Coordinating with relevant organizations to avoid duplication of efforts, maximize efficiency and minimize costs - Raising supplementary funds to provide adequate assistance to NAI Parties - Coordinating the implementation of activities (regional coordination, MoU for workshops, logistics, etc.)

5 5A5A Project 1: Regional capacity-building for sustainable national greenhouse gas inventory management systems in Southeast Asia (SEA GHG Project) Participating Countries: 1. Cambodia 2. Indonesia 3. Lao P.D.R. 4. Malaysia 5. Philippines 6. Singapore * 7. Thailand 8. Vietnam Project Duration: >3 years (2007 – 2010) Funding sources and collaborating Institutions: - US - Environmental Protection Agency (US-EPA) - Colorado State University (CSU) - Japan’s Workshop on GHG Inventories in Asia (WGIA (GIO/NIES)) - EU

6 6A6A SEA GHG Project Objectives: To strengthen the capacity of SEA countries to improve the quality of their national GHG inventory for the development of sustainable inventory management systems. Components: Component 1: Improving National Inventory Management Systems Component 2: Comprehensive multi-tier GHG software for Agriculture and LULUCF (ALU software) Component 3: Targeted improvements to LULUCF sector (Forest land) Component 4: Targeted improvements to Agriculture sector Component 5: Targeted improvements to Energy sector

7 7A7A Project 2: NAI GHG Inventory Software (Version 2.0) To address the (in)compatibility issues of the current version (2007 – based on MS Excel) Web based application Possible access over a network (allowing simultaneous access to the internal database) Data entered into worksheets is stored into a database that is physically separate from the programme displaying the worksheets (new versions of software won’t impact the data stored) Based on free widely used language and tools Very small size (only a few mb) To be released as a fully functional prototype at SB 32

8 8A8A Project 3: Regional capacity-building for sustainable national greenhouse gas inventory management systems in Eastern and Southern Africa Participating Countries: 1.Around 5 to 7 NAI Parties from Eastern and Southern Africa 2.Countries with REDD projects 3.Scoping meeting tentatively planned for end of June 2010 Project Duration: 3 years (2010 – 2012) Funding sources and collaborating Institutions: - Canada - US - Environmental Protection Agency (US-EPA) - To be confirmed - Colorado State University (CSU) - Switzerland - EU

10 10 A Additional Information - SEA GHG Project

11 11 A Component 1 is about the use of Template Approach for building National GHG Inventory Management Capacity Template 1 - Key category analysis (also software) Template 2 - Institutional arrangements for national system Template 3 – Documentation and source-by-source description (SBS) Template 4 – Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) Measures Template 5 – Inventory Archive System Template 6 – National Inventory Improvement Plan (NIIP)

12 12 A Component 2 is about the ALU Software

13 13 A Milestone June 2007, Manila, Philippines; Scoping Meeting - Introduced to the GHG Management Templates (Component 1) April 2008, Singapore: Kick-off Workshop - Introduced to ALU software and ALU Workbook, including a workshop on how to fill in primary and secondary data (manual distributed) (Component 2) July 2008, Tsukuba, Japan: Short Follow-up meeting - Reported on the progress of the use of Templates and ALU Workbooks October and November 2009, Philippines and Thailand In-Country Training Workshops on ALU Software - Conducted hands-on training on the use of ALU software May 2009, Seam Reap, Cambodia: Regional Training on ALU Software - Trained on how to accomplish the ALU Workbooks in preparation for the in-country training July 2009, Seoul, South Korea: Short Follow–up meeting - Discussed status of ALU Workbook preparation and the schedules of ALU in- country trainings for SEA countries February 2010, Vietnam and Cambodia In-Country Training Workshops on ALU Software - conducted hands-on training on the use of ALU software February 2010, PNG – Meeting for the country to join the Project
