The main objective of the report is to
analyze the current greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory
process in Romania, and provide recommendations for
improving the system in order to increase the effectiveness
and efficiency of inventory development in compliance with
United Nations framework convention on climate change
(UNFCCC) and European Union (EU) requirements, including
emissions forecasting provisions. This report describes the
GHG inventory process and its history, analyzes the legal
framework, documents and information provisions, and flows
related to making the inventory together with identifying
the potential adjustments for improvement, assess reporting
entities and correlation mechanisms to economic dynamics, in
terms of completeness, coherence, response time constant to
changes in the number of companies' impact on data
reporting, and provides recommendations on the possibility
to improve the inventory-making process in order to meet the
requirements of emission projections. The report is
organized into seven sections as follows: section one
provides a general introduction to GHG inventories. Section
two examines the processes and procedures used in the
present GHG inventory system in Romania and the alignment of
this system with international frameworks including the
framework for the development of environmental statistics
(FDES) and the intergovernmental panel on climate change
(IPCC) schematic framework. Section three elaborates the
challenges with the existing greenhouse inventory process
including data gaps and weaknesses in the statistical
infrastructure. Section four looks at the international and
national legal requirements for greenhouse gas inventories.
Section five provides analysis on the flow of information
and the specific verification points to ensure data
consistency and coherence. Section six provides a number of
