Greenhouse Gas Inventory report vital for PNG

PNG is among many countries under the UNFCCC that rectified the Paris Agreement and must report on their status on the NGHGI.

The Paris Agreement and the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) that underpin the Agreement provide a framework for the collective action necessary to address global climate change.

This includes specific action in the agriculture and land-use sector.

Data compilation needs improvement to complete GHG Inventory

This was revealed at a workshop in Port Moresby to revise the work done so far on a complete quality assurance process of the GHG estimations in PNG.

The workshop was facilitated by the Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and attended by officers from the agriculture and land-use sector.

The Government of PNG, through CCDA in partnership with the FAO, is working to complete the GHG estimations from the Agriculture, Forest and Other Land Uses (AFOLU) sector to form the NGHGI.
