Assessment of Member States’ 2017 GHG projections

ETC/ACM Technical Paper 2017/8

This report provides a summary of the assessment of the EU Member States’ submission under Article 14 of the Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (MMR) in 2017. Under this obligation EU Member States have to submit updated GHG projections and related information biennially. The reported information undergoes several phases of QA/QC checks consisting of checks on timeliness, accuracy, completeness, consistency and comparability. This report shows the results for each of these quality criteria as well as a sector-specific analysis of the reporting on Agriculture and LULUCF projections. Details on the underlying QA/QC procedure are described in ETC/ACM Technical Paper 2017/9.

The report was prepared on behalf of the European Environment Agency, as partner of the European Topic Centre on Air Pollution and Climate change Mitigation.
