The Expert Review Team concludes that the Russian Federation's inventory submission has generally been prepared in accordance with UNFCCC and IPCCC reporting guidelines, but identifies the need for further improvements, in particular the further development of country-specific emission factors and other parameters.
18 April 2011: The UNFCCC Secretariat has published the report (FCCC/ARR/2010/RUS ) of the individual review of the annual submission of the Russian Federation.
The report indicates that the Expert Review Team (ERT) concludes that the inventory submission of the Russian Federation has been prepared and reported generally in accordance with the UNFCCC reporting guidelines, the Revised 1996 IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Guidelines, the IPCC good practice guidance and the IPCC good practice guidance for Land use, Land-use change and Forestry (LULUCF). The 2010 inventory submission is generally of a high quality and shows significant improvements in the major issues (e.g. recalculations in the LULUCF sector). However, the ERT identifies a need for further improvements, in particular the further development of country-specific emission factors and other parameters (e.g. in the energy sector) in order to move to higher-tier methods.
