The report is an overview of available country-specific data and modeling approaches for estimating global landfill methane. Current estimates of global landfill methane indicate that landfills account for between 4 and 15% of the global methane budget. The report describes an approach for using country-specific and field test data to develop a less uncertain estimate of global landfill methane. Development of enhanced emissions factors for landfills and other major sources of methane will improve the understanding of atmospheric chemistry and feedback effects, will target mitigation opportunities, and will ensure cost-effective mitigation strategies.
