Abstract/Summary

The 2015 Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris has for the first time agreed that both developed and developing countries need to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to maintain a global average temperature ‘well below’ 2°C and aim to limit the increase to less than 1.5°C above pre-industrial temperatures. This requires more ambitious emission reduction targets and an increased level of cooperation and transparency between countries. With the start of the second Kyoto Commitment period in 2013, and the 2015 Paris Agreement, it is, therefore, timely to reconsider how GHG emissions are determined and verified.
