Work due 01 Jan 2099
No major changes to this indicator were made in 2008. Data reported under the LRTAP, National emission ceilings Directive (NECD) and the GHG MM were used. Similarly, EEA-ETC/ACC does not expect major changes to the structure of the indicator will be required for 2009.
Countries should improve the completeness of the time series of their estimates (filling gaps). Further validation and checking is the responsibility of the country and needs especially to lead to improved detailed sectoral time series of emissions. There is also a need for further validation and checking of emission estimates within the framework of LRTAP Convention/EMEP and EEA-ETC/ACC activities.
