Review of the projected balance of Kyoto Protocol units: Review of units during the first commitment period

Publication date:  January 2010
Publication reference number:  CR 85

An independent review of the 2009 net position has been completed by the Australian office of AECOM, a global environmental and engineering consulting company.

The key findings of the review were that the central projection was a reasonable estimate of future emissions and that the process for preparing the emissions projection was sensible and well constructed. The review team found no issues that would materially affect the central estimate. The review team did make recommendations that will improve the treatment of the scenarios and sensitivities around the central net position estimate and made useful suggestions that will make it easier for readers to locate emissions data that is held across different government agencies.
