Title: Good Practice Guidance for Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry
Author: ElSiddig, Elnour
Abstract: In 1998, the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) invited the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to produce good practice guidance to the Revised 1996 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (IPCC Guidelines)1. Since the Parties had already agreed to use2 the IPCC Guidelines for estimating greenhouse gas emissions and removals, the role of good practice guidance was not to replace the IPCC Guidelines, but rather to provide advice consistent with them. The IPCC finished its work in time for the first volume of the Good Practice Guidance and Uncertainty Management in National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (GPG2000) 3 to be accepted at the IPCC Plenary meeting held in Montreal in May 2000. The Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UNFCCC as well as its Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) subsequently endorsed4 GPG2000. The COP has referred extensively to GPG2000 in subsequent decisions, including those collectively referred to as the Marrakesh Accords5, which were achieved at its seventh session. The Marrakesh Accords also invited the IPCC to develop good practice guidance for land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF), which is not covered in GPG2000. The mandate for this work, the definition of good practice in this context, its relationship to the IPCC Guidelines, and the practical consequences for inventory agencies are described in more detail below in Sections 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 and 1.6 respectively. Sections 1.5 and 1.7 contain an outline of the present document and a discussion of its policy relevance.
