Abstract

Current LULUCF greenhouse gas reporting by the Netherlands is incomplete. The few sections that are included in the current reporting are done at lower Tiers. Thirty nine existing monitoring systems or databases were identified as possibly relevant for setting up a national system. The systems are grouped as follows : 1: systems for land use and area (mapping), including soil maps (13); 2: data on agricultural and forestry practices that may serve to derive emission factors (16) 3: data on emission factors including weather and groundwater data (8) 4: modelling systems (2). Based on the identified exisiting systems, the report concludes on the main discrepancies between the ongoing reporting/current monitoring systems and the requirements as set out by the Marrakesh Accords and the 1st draft of the Good Practice Guidance.
