LESSONS LEARNT AND GOOD PRACTICE FOR REPORTING OF NATIONAL COMMUNICATIONS BY NAI
BACKGROUND In order to fulfil part of Work Programme of the CGE Mandate(FCCC/SBI/2010/inf.2) of synthesizing lessons learnt and collate good practices for reporting of National Communications, Key selected indicators have been identified from “User Manual for Guidelines on NCs from NAI” for various sections of National Communication for NAI Parties, which represent a fair contribution to good practice articulation. These key indicators have been qualitatively assessed/collected from SNC reports of selected NAI Parties which have so far submitted their NCs, and from other groups work to avoid duplication. The Matrix developed can enable a reasonable fair comparison of good practices and challenges across NAI countries who have submitted their SNC This process may assist in identification of challenges which require sharing among Parties aimed at improving reporting of NCs.
KEY INDICATORS National Circumstances (NC) Indicator Number 1 Features from national circumstances affecting and/or being affected by climate change 2Institututional arrangements 3Summary Table of key relevant information on national circumstances GHG Inventories (GHG) 1Institutional arrangements 2Key category analysis 3 National Inventory Management System-QA/QC and Uncertainty assessments 4IPCC methodological guidelines and Guidance 5Riding the Tier ladder 6Difficulties in collecting activity data 7Complete coverage of gases and Summary table 8Coverage of all sectors 9Allocation of GHG estimates and time series 10Use of Notation keys 11Choice of emission factor
KEY INDICATORS V&A 1Institutioanl arrangements 2Current vulnerabity of sectors based on historical climate data 3Use of models 4Selection/prioritisation of adaptation projects tools/methods 5Socio economic impacts from climate change 6Policy Framework Mitigation 1Institutional arrangements 2Use of models 3Use of marginal costing models/methods 4Mitigation potential and cost of mitigation 5Integration of GHG reductions and cosst through marginal costing analysis 6Macro economic assessment of climate change Other relevant information 1Integrating/mainstraming into development plans 2Status of activities related to technology transfer 3Status of activities related to research and systematic observation 4Status of activities related to education, training and public awareness
RESULTS 90% of the Parties assessed included in the NC, information on institutional arrangements for preparation of National Circumstances and distribution of responsibilities Only 19.4% and 40% of attained indicators, included in the NC description of relevant features from national circumstances affecting and/or being affected by climate change, and insertion of a Summary Table of key relevant information.
RESULTS-GHG INVENTORY Over 80% of Parties attained good practice reporting on inclusion of information on description of institutional arrangements for preparation of GHG inventory, use of higher-tier methods, and coverage of all sectors, respectively There was moderate coverage of indicators of around 60% related to complete coverage of gases including indirect gases and inclusion of Summary Table, and time series analysis.
RESULTS-GHG Inventory There were, however, challenges with attainment performance of below 50% on undertaking comparison of Reference and Sectoral Approaches, key category analysis, institution of National Inventory Management System including QA/QC and uncertainty assessments, and combined use of Revised 1996 IPCC Guidelines, IPCC Good Practice Guidance 2000, and Good Practice Guidance for LULUCF 2003.
RESULTS –V&A There was good practice reporting on inclusion of information on institutional arrangements for preparation of V&A, and use of GCM/RCM models for developing CC projection scenarios and impact assessment based either on models or expert judgment with over 80% attainment, and to some extent inclusion of Policy Framework The challenge, however, remained with application of either multi criteria analysis and/or cost benefit analysis for prioritisation of projects from the normally long lists of adaption projects being recommended.
RESULTS-MITIGATION There were good efforts to include in the NC information related to mitigation strategy and plan, and use of tools for baseline and mitigation scenarios development with 70% and 52%, respectively. There was, however, less assessment of cost of mitigation, and integration of GHG reductions and costs through construction of marginal cost curves with below 20% attainment performance and completely no coverage on macroeconomic assessment of climate change mitigation.
RESULTS- OTHER RELEVANT INFORMATION There was good attainment of inclusion on status on information technology transfer, research and systematic observation, and activities related to education, training and public awareness with 90% attainment Under this section, the challenge remains with integrating and/or mainstreaming climate change into development plans
RESULTS-SUMMARY PERFORMANCE ATTAINMENT Attainment % range <50% 50 to 59% 60 to 69% Over 70% Total Number in range 13410431 Comments (% Total) 42%13%32%13%100% If over 60% can be regarded as good practice threshold, results of this analysis indicate that 45% of the Parties assessed had made efforts in their reporting with good practice, and 55% had challenges in fulfilling good practice during reporting of NCs.
