ABSTRACT
This article presents a generic assessment of the current status of Annex I and Non-Annex I greenhouse gas inventories. For Annex I Parties, it also gives a general assessment of the gap or distance to the full compliance with the reporting requirements under the protocol and to a well functioning national inventory system. Non-Annex I Parties need to provide national communications, which include national inventories, less frequently under the United Nations Framework Convention of Climate Change.
