The U.S. Biennial Report, as part of the 2014 U.S. Climate Action Report, outlines how U.S. action on climate change puts the United States on a path to reach the ambitious but achievable goal of reducing U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the range of 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020. During 2009-2011, average U.S.

The Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks tracks the national trend in greenhouse gas emissions and removals back to 1990. The key findings of the 1990-2012 U.S. Inventory include: In 2012, U.S. greenhouse gas emissions totaled 6,526 million metric tons CO2 Eq.; U.S. emissions decreased by 3.4 percent from 2011 to 2012.

The land-use sector serves key environmental and social functions and supports the livelihoods of around a half of the world’s population. Despite its importance, however, the climate regime fails to formulate a coherent vision or set of incentives for mitigation and adaptation from the sector.

This WRI working paper provides an overview of these and other existing national policies, as well as policies under development, that are likely to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in India.

The 2013 Revised Supplementary Methods and Good Practice Guidance Arising from the Kyoto Protocol (KP Supplement) provides supplementary methods andgood practice guidance for estimating anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions by sources and removals by sinks resulting from land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) activities under Article 3

If the greenhouse "gap" isn’t "closed or significantly narrowed" by 2020, the pathway to limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5C will be closed, warns this 2013 edition of Emissions Gap Report compiled by 44 scientific groups in 17 countries.

All-India Comparison of Emissions by Sector in Million Tonnes of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent (1994 and 2007). Percentage emissions from each sector with respect to total GHG emissions without LULUCF in 1994 and 2007 respectively.

Land-use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) activities will play an important role in global climate change mitigation. Many carbon schemes require the delivery of both climate and rural development benefits by mitigation activities conducted in developing countries. Agroforestry is a LULUCF activity that is gaining attention because of its potential to deliver climate benefits as well as rural development benefits to smallholders.

This paper considers developments to date in the UNFCCC and in the REDD+ partnership and provides analysis on possible future options for REDD-plus, agriculture and land use.

The greenhouse gas emissions levels are now around 14 per cent above where they need to be in 2020 shows this UNEP report developed by 55 scientists from 22 countries. Warns that if nations do not act promptly, the emissions are likely to be at 58 gigatonnes in eight years' time.
