Climate Theme 1: Carbon Stocks, GHG Emissions,

Sinks and Management Options

Vision

A holistic analysis of carbon stocks and GHG emissions and removals in Ireland.

Thematic goal

Advanced analysis of GHG emissions and removals, enabling improved policy development and decision making.

Research objectives include:

  • To improve national GHG inventories and projections including more accurate reporting of Irish circumstances.
  • To develop independent measurement and verification systems.
  • To enable effective mitigation of GHG emissions.
  • To improve understanding of the feedback of Climate Change on emissions and removals.
  • To provide analysis of alternative metrics and approaches to accounting of emissions.

This area is focused on-going improvement of national GHG inventory and projections. Improved analysis of the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector is central to this.
