Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring

A comprehensive guide for GHG quantification of different types of transport mitigation action was officially launched in the beginning of May during the Technical Meeting of United Nations – Framework Convention on Climate change (UNFCCC). The Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring is a multi-stakeholder effort to provide a resource map of methodologies and tools for establishing baselines and monitoring emissions reductions from mitigation actions.

The methodologies presented in the volume were chosen with a view to cover a broad range of different mitigation action types in terms of scale, type of intervention and affected modes.

The publication is coordinated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in cooperation with the UNFCCC Secretariat and the Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SloCaT), with funding from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), and written with the assistance of the Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP).
