Central to any study of climate change is the development of an emissions inventory that identifies and quantifies a country's primary anthropogenic sources and sinks of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This inventory adheres to both a comprehensive and detailed methodology for estimating sources and sinks of anthropogenic greenhouse gases, and a common and consistent mechanism that enable signtory countries to the United Nations enables signatory countries to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to compare the relative contribution of different emission sources and greenhouse gases to climate change. Systematically and consistently estimating national and international emissions is a prerequisite for evaluating the cost-effectiveness and feasibility of mitigation strategies and emission reduction technologies.
