National Individual Consultant
 
Consultancy to Develop Green House Gas (GHG) Inventory for Third National Communication and Biennial Update Report
 
Background: The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventory is an essential part of national communications of countries that are Party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). In Kenya, an inventory of GHG emissions was conducted during the First National Communications, published and submitted to the UNFCCC in October 2002. 

The Initial National Communication GHG emissions were calculated in the following sectors: Energy, Land-Use Change and Forestry (LUCF), Agriculture, Industrial Processes and Waste. 

The IPCC’s 2006 revised guidelines on GHG emissions and emission factors were used.

Kenya is also in the process of finalizing its Second National Communication (SNC). 


The GHG inventory chapter within the SNC outlines the greenhouse gas emissions and removals by sinks for the year 2000, as well as additional years between 1995 and 2010. 

However, under the UNFCCC decision of the Conference of Parties (COP16), all parties, Kenya included, are obliged to produce a biennial update report (BUR) every 2 years.
