Project Detail

Delivering the Agricultural Greenhouse Gas & Ammonia Inventories & Projections

The overall aim of this project is to deliver the annual inventories of ammonia (NH3) and GHG emissions from UK agriculture and projections of emissions to 2030 to Defra and the UK's Inventory Agency on a timely basis and in compliance with international reporting guidelines. Specific objectives are to: o Provide annual GHG inventories (CH4, N2O and CO2) for UK agriculture with a time series of 1990-current reporting year for reporting years 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 for reporting to UNFCCC and EU-MM o Provide annual NH3 (and NOx, NMVOC and PM) for UK agriculture with a time series of 1990-current reporting year for reporting years 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 for reporting to UNECE and EU-NECD o Provide high resolution maps of CH4, N2O and NH3 emissions from UK agriculture for each reporting year o Annually provide projections of CH4, N2O and NH3 emissions from UK agriculture to 2030 o Develop a QA/QC implementation plan to ensure compliance with IPCC and BEIS guidelines o Maintain and update the reporting tool according to improvements in data, understanding and reporting guideline requirements o Provide an annual summary update of the UK agricultural emissions inventory for Government and Industry stakeholders.
