Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


The KAT model provides a spreadsheet-based framework to calculate carbon sequestration in the commitment period (2008-2012) under Article 3.3 and 3.4 activities of the Kyoto protocol for the EU15 countries and selected Annex 1 countries. Any combination of 3.3 scenarios, 3.4 activities and sub-rules on Articles 3.3 and 3.4 based on policy proposals can be chosen. The carbon sequestration is calculated and presented in graphs and tables both in absolute values and in percentages of the1990 emissions. The user can interactively choose between a literature database and a database that consists of data submitted by countries under the UNFCC regulations.
