On May 13 2019, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released an update to its methodology used by governments to estimate their greenhouse gas emissions and removals.

The new report provides guidelines to support accurate inventory of greenhouse gases. Using updated scientific methods, the requirement for governments to report their emissions and removals to the UNFCCC will be greatly improved and more transparent.
