UNFCCC Emission Trend Presentation

  1. 1. United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change UNFCCC press conference, Bonn, 20 November 2007 Kyoto Protocol “go-live”: data, policies, infrastructures by Sergey KONONOV (UNFCCC secretariat)
  2. 2. “ Kyoto cornerstones”: data – policies – infrastructures Reports on GHG emissions Emission reduction targets under Kyoto Protocol for industrialized countries: at least –5% by 2008-2012 compared to 1990 Policies and measures to reduce emissions Systems & infrastructures to support GHG emissions data and market-based mechanisms
  3. 3. United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change UNFCCC press conference, Bonn, 20 November 2007 GHG trends 1990-2005: latest UNFCCC data for industrialized countries by Sergey KONONOV (UNFCCC secretariat)
  4. 4. <ul><li>The data are: </li></ul><ul><li>For the period 1990 – 2005 </li></ul><ul><li>For Annex I Parties (industrialized countries) </li></ul><ul><li>Come from official data submissions under UNFCCC in 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>Full data publication = FCCC/SBI/2007/30 (for the Bali meetings) </li></ul><ul><li>Two sets of data are presented: </li></ul><ul><li>For Annex I Parties to the Climate Change Convention: 41 Parties </li></ul><ul><li>For Annex I Parties to the Kyoto Protocol: 38 Parties </li></ul><ul><li>Trends for the Convention group and the Kyoto group differ </li></ul><ul><li>Caution 1 : emission trends 1990–2005 are NOT compliance assessment </li></ul><ul><li>Caution 2 : trends for group are not equivalent to trend for each country </li></ul>Overview / introduction | what data are available now
  5. 5. GHG trends 1990–2005 | Part 1: Annex I CONVENTION Parties (41) Note : LULUCF = Land use, land-use change and forestry; EIT = economy in transition 2000–2005 trend without GHG sinks: +3% <ul><li>1990–2005 trend : Annex I emissions remain below the 1990 level </li></ul><ul><ul><li>without GHG sinks (excluding LULUCF): -3% (more certain estimate) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>with GHG sinks (including LULUCF): -5% (more comprehensive estimate) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>by country, changes vary from –59% (Latvia) to +74% (Turkey) </li></ul></ul>1990–1995: -7% 1995–2000: +2% 2000–2005: +3% 2000–2005 trend with GHG sinks: +1% (+0.2% in EITs, +2% in non-EITs) from +6% in EITs , +2% in non-EITs from +200 Mt in EITs , +260 Mt in non-EITs
  6. 6. GHG trends 1990–2005 | Part 2: Annex I KYOTO Parties (38) <ul><li>2000–2005 trend : Annex I emissions slowly grow since 2000 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>without GHG sinks (excluding LULUCF): +3% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>for EIT Parties: +6% (resumed economic growth in EITs) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>for non-EIT Parties: +2% (continued growth in non-EITs) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>1990–2005 trend : Annex I emissions remain well below the 1990 level </li></ul><ul><ul><li>without GHG sinks (excluding LULUCF): -15% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>decrease for “Kyoto group” (-15%) deeper than for “Convention group” (-3%) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>by country, changes vary from –59% (Latvia) to +53% (Spain) </li></ul></ul>Note : Kyoto Parties (38) = Convention Parties (41) – Australia, Turkey, US
  7. 7. Conclusions | see also FCCC/SBI/2007/30, unfccc.int <ul><li>In 2005, emissions were below the 1990 level </li></ul><ul><ul><li>for 41 Convention Parties: –(3–5)% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>for 38 Kyoto Protocol Parties: –15% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>changes vary greatly from country to country </li></ul></ul>Slow growth after 2000 (+3%) is noticeable; needs attention The data reported = reliable basis for tracking emissions in the upcoming Kyoto commitment period 2008–2012
