National Inventory Report 1990-2008: Greenhouse Gas Sources and Sinks in Canada
The National GHG Inventory is the key tool for monitoring and reporting on emissions from sources and removals by sinks and is the ultimate measure for assessing compliance with the national emissions target. The National Inventory Report includes an inventory of anthropogenic (human-induced) emissions by sources, and removals by sinks, of the six main GHGs not controlled by the Montreal Protocol. The inventory uses an internationally agreed upon reporting format that groups emissions into the following six sectors: Energy; Industrial Processes; Solvent and Other Product Use; Agriculture; Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF); and Waste. Part 1 provides a summary of the Greenhouse Gas Emission Trends from 1990-2008, descriptions and analysis for the six sectors, and recalculations and improvements. Part 2 provides a key source analysis, estimation methodologies, a comparison of the sectoral and reference approaches in the Energy Sector, QA/QC procedures, completeness assessments, inventory uncertainty, emission factors, rounding procedures, a summary of ozone and aerosol precursors, and supplementary information required under Kyoto. Part 3 provides GHG emissions for each province and territory, GHG intensity of electricity generation and trend analyses by province and territory.
