Mapping the Greenhouse Gas Data Landscape in Salon 11
14:45 - 16:15
As interest in the emissions profile of cities has grown, so has the range of stakeholders and use-cases for the data included in a community-scale GHG inventory. In many cases inventories are built around “best available” activity data rather than data tailored for a particular purpose. As multi-year data from cities emerges, limitations of certain data for understanding progress and performance management are coming into sharper focus. Meanwhile novel approaches for direct measurement of gases emanating from cities are maturing and offer insight into these challenges.
