Estimating and projecting flows of greenhouse gases for New Zealand agriculture and planted forests

New Zealand is atypical among the Annex I parties within the Kyoto Protocol with agriculture forming a large part of greenhouse gas emissions and planted forests sequestering large amounts of carbon. This presentation will summarise the methods and data used to estimate flows of greenhouse gases within agriculture and planted forests in New Zealand’s National Inventory Report submission to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change last April. 2009 projections for the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol (2008-2012) will also be presented and discussed.
