A national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory is a cornerstone of a country’s reporting obligations to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It can also be a valuable tool for understanding development trends, improving resource management and energy efficiency, and developing policies and programmes to address climate change.

The Information Brief details the background and approaches for developing a National Greenhouse Gas Inventory System, including lesson learned and key resources. This Info Brief is intended to be used with the supplemental National GHG Inventory System Toolkit.
