Climate Change DATA (Bali conference)

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

United Nations Climate Change Conference - Bali, 3 - 14 December 2007
Greenhouse Gas Inventory Data

In accordance with Articles 4 and 12 of the Convention, and the relevant decisions of the Conference of the Parties, Parties to the Convention submit national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories to the Climate Change secretariat. These inventory data are provided in the annual GHG inventory submissions by Annex I Parties and in the national communications under the Convention by non-Annex I Parties.

The GHG data tables contain estimates for:
CO2 - Carbon dioxide
CH4 - Methane
N2O - Nitrous oxide
PFCs - Perfluorocarbons
HFCs - Hydrofluorocarbons
SF6 - Sulphur hexafluoride

The data contain the most recently submitted information, covering the period from 1990 to the latest available year, to the extent the data have been provided. The sources and availability of data are provided in "Information on data sources".

How to find the data needed within the GHG data interface
The UNFCCC data interface provides a vast multitude of data. Data can displayed for individual Parties or groups of Parties, for different greenhouse gases or for their sum, and at varying degrees of detail. To find the exact GHG data required, the user is advised to consult the following table where typical user requirements are mapped against the data availability on this site.
