20140123 ncgg7 inventorysession_proposal

  1. 1. Proposal for a ‘session-cluster’ on improving GHG inventories Adrian Leip 23/01/2014 – webinar discussion EC-JRC-IES-MARS- AgriEnv Action - Integration of Environment into Agriculture 6th CGMS Expert Meeting - 13/11/2013 1 JRC/AL CAPRI
  2. 2. Background • New guidelines due for 2015 reporting – good opportunity • Explicit request by UNFCCC review of the EU GHG inventory that DG CLIMA/JRC engages with EU countries to improve inventories • UK GHG platform to share experiences • NCGG7 conference attracts key scientists and provides ideal platform for high-level discussions (both scientific/inventory experts) N2013 - Munyonyo - 18/11/2013 2 N-footprint & sustainability: N-neutrality
  3. 3. Basic idea • Combine different session types into a ‘cluster’ Scientific: Scientific NCGG sessions with key presentations • As ‘normal’ part of NCGG7 National: Dedicated for exchange of national experience/ideas • mainly for EC-GHG inventory WG1 participants • open to everybody Breakout: in-depth discussion of specific topics • Linked to key presentations • Topics linked to key presentations Plenary of Inventory session cluster: final discussion/conclusions • Reporting-back from the breakout sessions • Outcome: report? paper? Recommendations addressing whom? N2013 - Munyonyo - 18/11/2013 3 N-footprint & sustainability: N-neutrality
  4. 4. Scientific NCGG sessions with key presentations • Two sessions 1. Improving and building a national agricultural GHG emission inventory (DEFRA/CEH) 2. Feasibility of a Tier 2 / Tier 3 approach for N2O emissions from agricultural soils • Highest share of uncertainty in the agriculture sector • Largest ‘methodological gap’ ie mainly Tier 1 used despite being key category • Scientifically very challenging: bridging scales, approaches, techniques • Target presenters key experts • Presentations of review/overview type N2013 - Munyonyo - 18/11/2013 4 N-footprint & sustainability: N-neutrality
  5. 5. National: Dedicated for exchange of national experience/ideas Mixed type of presentations/standard Countries allowed to present own approach even if not finalised / open questions Brief focused presentations focusing on a specific issue / raising a point / being provocative possible N2013 - Munyonyo - 18/11/2013 5 N-footprint & sustainability: N-neutrality
  6. 6. Breakout: in-depth discussion of specific topics N2013 - Munyonyo - 18/11/2013 6 N-footprint & sustainability: N-neutrality
  7. 7. Plenary of Inventory session cluster: final discussion/conclusions N2013 - Munyonyo - 18/11/2013 7 N-footprint & sustainability: N-neutrality
  8. 8. Questions • ‘Recruit’ appropriate speaker Session S1 already ok Session S2 needs to be done: extended deadline (1st March?) Possibly use available submissions Session N: combination of • submissions (extended deadline) • ad-hoc (very) short presentations on single issues – no formal deadline • Key presenters (S1 and S2) will be asked to chair break-out groups Participation to different groups should be organized in advance • Website – access to it on-site for late-comers N2013 - Munyonyo - 18/11/2013 8 N-footprint & sustainability: N-neutrality
  9. 9. Infrastructure / logistics • Additional requirements: Normal rooms for sessions S, N, and P Space for small break-out discussions for session B • Questions: Will it be possible to register for this event only? N2013 - Munyonyo - 18/11/2013 9 N-footprint & sustainability: N-neutrality
  10. 10. CAPRIspatial Available data: activities (areas by crop, yield, livestock number/density) and farm input (manure, mineral fertiliser, irrigation share), GHG and Nr flows N2013 - Munyonyo - 18/11/2013 10 N-footprint & sustainability: N-neutrality
