Compendium on greenhouse gas baselines and monitoring: national-level mitigation actions

Sadie S

This 2016 report from the UNFCCC aims to support countries in their assessment of emission reductions from national-level mitigation actions in economies that are dominated by energy-related emissions. It provides an overview of the main approaches for developing baseline and mitigation scenarios at the national level (i.e. for the entire economy), considering the main drivers of GHG emissions, technology options, data sources and impacts of mitigation actions. It also describes top-down modeling approaches for mitigation assessment, and provides guidance in relation to the selection of suitable baseline approaches based on the national circumstances of a country and maintaining consistency when integrating bottom-up sectoral baselines into a national economy-wide baseline.
