Abstract/Summary

This report presents a summary of the net emissions and removals of greenhouse gases for 1990-2010 by the Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry sector for each of the Devolved Administrations (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). Supporting data is available at http://naei.defra.gov.uk/report_link.php?report_id=692. A full report for the UK is available in the 1990-2010 UK Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report, available on the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory website http://naei.defra.gov.uk/. The LULUCF sector in England was a net source of GHG emissions in 2010 (1.642 Mt CO2e). The size of this source has diminished since 1990. The LULUCF sector in Scotland was a net sink of GHG emissions in 2010 (-5.459 Mt CO2e). This sink increased steadily from 1990 to 2009 but shrank slightly in 2010. The LULUCF sector in Wales was a small net sink of GHG emissions in 2010 (-0.042 Mt CO2e). Net emissions/removals have fluctuated between source and sink since 1990. The LULUCF sector in Northern Ireland was a small net source in 2010 (0.105 Mt CO2e) but was a small sink between 1990 and 2005. Small changes between this and the 1990-2009 inventory are due to the inclusion of new activity data and some minor revisions in methods.
