Guidance on reporting and accounting for cropland and grassland management in accordance with Article 3(2) of EU Decision 529/2013/EU (2.3 MB)

Guidance on reporting and accounting for Revegetation and Wetland Drainage and Rewetting Activities in accordance with Article 3(3) of EU Decision 529/2013/EU (2.1 MB)

This workshop will address technical issues related to the reporting of greenhouse gases (GHG) from the Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) sector under the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol (KP). The reporting in 2015 is particularly challenging because of new IPCC guidelines and the new reporting/accounting rules for LULUCF.

The workshop aims to gather experts from EU MS to share their experience in the light of any submissions done under Decision 529/2013/EU, and to prepare for the submission under the UNFCCC/KP. Specific issues will include difficulties in filling the new CRF tables, data for Cropland and Grazing Land management (CM and GM), problems in applying the new rules on Forest Management Reference Level (FMRL), Harvested Wood Products (HWP) and Natural disturbances, etc.  The workshop also aims to assess the needs emerging from MS and the possible contribution that the JRC could provide in coming years in terms of expertise/datasets.
