The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) as Non-Annex I Party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) should prepare and submit National Communications every four years to the Conference of the Parties (COP) containing information on their emissions by sources and removals by sinks of all GHGs not controlled by the Montreal Protocol, and on the steps taken or envisaged to implement the Convention. Further to this, Non-Annex I Parties are also requested to submit Biennial Update Reports to the UNFCCC every second year starting January 2014 containing updates of national GHG inventories, including a national inventory report and information on mitigation actions, needs and support received. The reporting guidelines for BUR are described in decision 2/CP.17, Annex III.
Duties and Responsibilities
The consultant will be responsible for designing the National Greenhouse Gas Inventory (NGI) for the Energy/IPPU/Agriculture/LULUCF/Waste sectors, the redaction of the National Inventory Report (NIR) and the development of the Chapters on GHG Inventory as part of the Third National Communication (TNC) for period 2001 to 2018 and 2017 for First Biennial Update Report (FBUR). This includes working together with stakeholders, including capacity building activities and trainings on data collection, analysis, indicators, the use of 2006 IPCC guidelines on national greenhouse gas inventories, the IPCC good practice guidance on the National GHG inventories and Uncertainty Management, the IPCC Good Practice Guidance on Land use, land-use change and forestry and implementing and maintaining a National Greenhouse Gas Inventory system.
The FBUR report is meant to be an update of the most recent National Communication submitted in 2015 covering the inventory years 1994 and 2000. This includes the NGI data covering the Energy/IPPU/Agriculture/LULUCF/Waste sectors. To generate this information, the consultant will be responsible for analyzing the national available information for year of the inventory to estimate the emission of the year based on the IPCC 2006 IPCC Guidelines.
Activity data collected should be combined with available country specific emission factors. If information on this is missing default emission factors from the 2006 IPCC Guidelines can be used. In any case the origin of the data needs to be documented.
The specific references that should be reviewed and will form the basis for the study are the Initial and Second National Communications.
The following Methodologies for inventories should be considered:
