GHG Inventory Tool Questionnaire

Dear GHG inventory tool User/Developer,

Please provide us with an update on the tools you use or provide for national Greenhouse Gas inventory planning, data gathering, compilation, checking and reporting. National greenhouse gas inventories play a pivotal role in the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) under the Paris Agreement. Even though various sector-specific tools with a broad range of functionalities are available globally it has been difficult to understand what tools are available and their applications. There is currently no centralized source of information on the advantages and weaknesses and applicability of these tools, or guidance for the necessary skills and services in countries.

With your help we aim to begin to centralize and consolidate information on GHG inventory and projection tools. If you leave contact details we can also start to establish a community around the use of these tools. This questionnaire is designed to assess the tools you have experience with by capturing your thoughts on functionalities, ease of use, strengths, preferences, and suggestions regarding the tools. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete. We encourage you to share your knowledge of tools and to share this questionnaire with others. We hope to repay you by sharing our analysis with you and by seeding a forum for inventory compilers and tool providers to collaborate, save time and improve the quality of inventories and data for decision makers.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could provide feedback by the the end of JanuaryMany thanks in advance for your time and valuable input! Your participation is crucial in shaping our understanding and advancing the effectiveness of GHG inventory tools! 

Please note: If you are providing information on multiple tools, kindly submit additional questionnaire responses. 

Best regards,

Justin Goodwin - representing Aether, UNEP-CCC, ICAT and all the wonderful inventory compilers around the world
