Abstract/Summary

This report presents a summary of the net emissions and removals of greenhouse gases for 1990‐2011 by the Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry sector of the UNFCCC National Inventory for each of the Devolved Administrations (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). Supporting data is available at http://naei.defra.gov.uk/reports/reports?report_id=734. A full report for the UK is available in the 1990‐2011 UK Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report, available on the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory at http://naei.defra.gov.uk/reports/reports?report_id=747. The LULUCF sector in England was a net source of GHG emissions in 2011 (1.733 Mt CO2e). The size of this source has diminished since 1990 (6.011 Mt CO2e). The LULUCF sector in Scotland was a net sink of GHG emissions in 2011 (‐5.270 Mt CO2e). This sink increased steadily from 1990 (‐2.055 Mt CO2e) to 2010 (‐5.505 Mt CO2e) but has shrunk in 2011. The LULUCF sector in Wales was a small net source of GHG emissions in 2011 (0.141 Mt CO2e). Net emissions/removals have fluctuated between source and sink since 1990. The back‐calculations of the inventory data have changed the 2010 value from a small net sink (‐0.042 Mt CO2e) in the 1990‐2010 Inventory to a small net source (0.151 Mt CO2e) in the 1990‐2011 Inventory. The LULUCF sector in Northern Ireland was a small net source in 2011 (0.180 Mt CO2e) but was a small sink between 1992 and 2004. Small changes between this and the 1990‐2010 inventory are due to the inclusion of new activity data and some minor revisions in methods.
