Summary Report on HFC Emissions Studies


This report summarizes the combined experience arising from the development and reporting of emissions forecasts for six countries (Bangladesh, Chile, Colombia, Ghana, Indonesia and Nigeria) using their HFC inventory reports implemented by UNDP from 2013 to 2015, and other related documents.

Anthesis-Caleb was commissioned by UNDP to review the CCAC-sponsored HFC Inventory Reports prepared for each of six countries with a view to using those reports, plus any relevant supporting information in the public domain, to derive emissions estimates using the assembled time series of consumption data. Emission factors would preferably be taken from local experience, but default values would be used from the 2006 IPCC Reporting Guidelines where such information was either unavailable or deemed unreliable. Indeed, it was decided to model emissions using the 2006 IPCC Reporting Guidelines for each country in parallel with any local emission factor information available in order to provide country-to-country comparisons on a consistent basis.
