The Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (TFI)

The TFI develops and refines an internationally-agreed methodology and software for the calculation and reporting of national GHG emissions and removals and encourages the use of this methodology by countries participating in the IPCC and by signatories of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The TFI was established by the IPCC, at its 14th session (October 1998), to oversee the IPCC National Greenhouse Gas Inventories Programme (IPCC-NGGIP).

This programme had been undertaken since 1991 by the IPCC WG I in close collaboration with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the International Energy Agency (IEA). In 1999, the Technical Support Unit (TSU) set up at the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) in Japan took over this programme in accordance with a decision taken by the IPCC at its 14th session.

The objectives of the TFI are:

-to develop and refine an internationally-agreed methodology and software for the calculation and reporting of national GHG emissions and removals; and

-to encourage the widespread use of this methodology by countries participating in the IPCC and by signatories of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The inauguration of the TSU took place on Saturday 25 September 1999 in Tokyo, Japan. Currently ten staff members are working in the TSU. For more details, please click here.

Reports

Reports are produced from a series of expert meetings covering a range of topics of interest to inventory compilers. They cover a diverse range of topics including forest greenhouse gas inventories; uncertainty and validation; the managed land proxy; and the use of complex models or direct measurements. These reports can all be downloaded from our website.
