As part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Kyoto Protocol (KP), Romania has the obligation to develop and operate a greenhouse gas reporting system.
The present project will give a significant weight to this sector. The emissions and absorption reports from the LULUCF sector were initially based strictly on the type of land use according to the UNFCCC and on the type of activity carried out on land in accordance with the Kyoto Protocol. The reporting rules established under the Kyoto Protocol treated the LULUCF sector differently from other sectors, excluding this sector from the calculation of the targets assumed by the signatories for which the LULUCF sector does not represent a source of emissions (Olesen et al, 2016).
The results of the researches carried out in the activities aimed at analyzing the current situation and forecasts regarding the GHG emission / absorption ratio specific to Romania, will support the National System for the reporting of policies and measures and for the forecasts reporting of emissions and retention of greenhouse gases ( SNPMPEGES), in order to ensure compliance with the provisions and obligations assumed by the relevant official documents, especially in view of the entry into force of the Paris Agreement.
