Emission Inventories and Projections

The main role of the Task Force on Emission Inventories and Projections (TFEIP) is to support Parties in the reporting of air pollutant emissions and projections data to the Convention. This includes having responsibility for the development and technical content of the EMEP/European Environment Agency (EEA) Emission Inventory Guidebook used for the estimation and reporting of national emissions. The Task Force also provides a technical forum and expert network to harmonize emission factors, establish methodologies for the evaluation of emission data and projections and identify problems related to emissions reporting. The Task Force further supports Parties in their implementation of the reporting requirements specified in the Convention’s emission reporting guidelines. It also focuses on data quality and inventory review. The Task Force is led by the United Kingdom, the European Union (EU) and Finland. It works  closely with the Centre on Emission Inventories and Projections (CEIP). CEIP, which is hosted at the Environment Agency Austria (Umweltbundesamt), collects emissions and projections of acidifying air pollutants, heavy metals, particulate matter and photochemical oxidants from Parties to the Convention; reviews submitted inventories in order to improve the quality of reported data; and prepares data sets as input for long-range transport models. The revised mandate of the Task Force can be found in EB decision 2019/6.
