Project outcomes

Increased transparency and timeliness of Colombia's GHG inventory process by means of a National GHG Inventory System (SINGEI).

Uncertainty of the data to estimate GHG emissions from prioritized inventory categories is estimated and managed.

Project results disseminated to strengthen institutional arrangements and increase global cooperation.

Reduced uncertainty of the information used to estimate GHG emissions in key Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) categories of the energy sector.

Policy-relevant GHG emissions indicators are made available to inform sectoral decision-making.

Improved estimates of CO2 emissions and removals from prioritized AFOLU land-cover related categories through high quality scientific information.

GHG’s Scenarios and projections estimated for the Energy and AFOLU sectors, through high quality scientific information.

Knowledge Management Approaches

SINGEI is intended to be a platform in which a broad public comprising the civil society, academia, private companies, Ministries and local governments have access to transparent and reliable information on the countries emissions and how are these estimated.

Implementation of a capacity development program on uncertainty, targeting key officers from agencies and organizations in charge of supplying information to estimate and project emissions.

Research processes underlying the development of country-specific databases on activity data and emission factors to open up new lines of work in Colombian universities and reserach ecenters.
