This file includes the data from Mostefaoui et al. (ESSD, under submission), for 54 countries African countries The data includes: (1) CO2 fluxes from global models - satellite inversions and Dynamic Global Vegetation Models (DGVM) -, and from a collection of national inventories for LULUCF, GFEDv4 and FAO data. DGVM values are the median of 14 models, consistent with the Global Carbon Budget 2020 ( LULUCF UNFCCC corrected values are from Grassi (2) CH4 fluxes from global models consistent with the Global Methane Budget 2020 ( (3 N2O fluxes from global models (three inversions) For further methodological details, see Mostefaoui et al.
