Regulations on procedure for maintaining the state inventory of anthropogenic emissions from sources and absorption by absorbers of greenhouse gases

1. This Provision determines procedure for maintaining the state inventory of anthropogenic emissions from sources and absorption by absorbers of the greenhouse gases which are not regulated by the Montreal protocol on the substances destroying ozone layer of September 16, 1987 (further - the state greenhouse gas inventory).

2. For the purposes of this provision terms are used in the following values:

gases with indirect greenhouse effect - carbon oxide, nitrogen oxides, not metane volatile organic compounds, sulfur oxides;

gases with direct greenhouse effect - carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, perfluorocarbons, hydrofluorocarbons, sulfur hexafluoride;

source of emissions of greenhouse gases - any object or natural complex located in the territory of the Republic of Belarus from which greenhouse gases with direct or indirect greenhouse effect arrive in atmospheric air;

greenhouse gases - gaseous components of the atmosphere of both natural, and anthropogenous origin which absorb and reflect infrared radiation;

absorber of greenhouse gases - any process, the mechanism or natural complex which absorbs greenhouse gas with direct or indirect greenhouse effect from atmospheric air;

cadastral year - calendar year for which assessment of emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and absorption from it is carried out;

the greenhouse gas inventory - the systematized code of documentary confirmed data on sources of emissions, and also absorbers of the greenhouse gases reflecting their dynamics.

3. Maintaining the state greenhouse gas inventory is performed for the purpose of:

accomplishment of obligations of the Republic of Belarus assumed according to the Framework convention of the United Nations on climate change of May 9, 1992 (further - the Framework convention) and the Parisian agreement;

ensuring technical maintenance of international cooperation in the field of fight against climate change;

analysis and forecasting of emissions and absorption of greenhouse gases;

the organizations of the control system behind emissions and absorption of greenhouse gases;

developments of the state and other programs and actions directed to fight against climate change including emission reduction and increase in absorption of greenhouse gases;

provisions of information on problems of anthropogenous impact on climate to the republican state bodies and other state organizations subordinated to the Government of the Republic of Belarus, other organizations;

informing the population on problems of the climate change caused by activities of the person.

4. Maintaining the state greenhouse gas inventory is performed according to the reviewed "Guidelines for preparation of national communications of the Parties included in appendix I to the Convention, part I: the guidelines of RKIK UN for submission of information on annual greenhouse gas inventories", accepted by the decision 24/CP.19 nineteenth sessions of the Conference of the Parties of the Framework convention in 2013 (further - the Guidelines).

5. Maintaining the state greenhouse gas inventory includes:

creation of the list of sources of emissions and absorbers of greenhouse gases;

information on emissions and absorption of greenhouse gases with direct and indirect greenhouse effect, and also about other gases on which decision is made by the Conference of the Parties of the Framework convention;

determination of evaluation method for each category of greenhouse gases;
