The urgent need for managing the national, regional, and global atmospheric balance of Greenhouse gases (also known as GHGs) is increasing. GHG source identification, measurement and accounting and reporting are key actions that contribute to the crucial goal of global carbon emissions reduction.
Measuring carbon footprints through GHG Accounting is an important process for tracking quantities of GHGs, helping organizations keep track of emissions of their operations and activities.
This is a fundamental course which will introduce participants to the basic scientific and technical aspects of understanding, identifying, tracking, accounting for and reporting on greenhouse gas emissions. Participants will gain the basic skills needed to develop greenhouse gas inventories and reports, both at organizational and project levels.
