This page presents an overview of the 4th Biennial Reports (BR-4) submitted by Annex-1 countries to the UNFCCC. The year inside the parenthesis describes the year of submission of BR-4 for each country.
Projected emission changes across sectors
BR Summary Statistics
The bar graphs represent percentage projected change in emissions for a given sector as estimated by a country within its BR. Positive values in the percentage change indicate a net increase of the emissions and negative
values indicate a net decrease in emission in comparison to the baseline year i.e. 1990. This data was taken from the Fourth Biennial Reporting Common Tabular Format (BR CTF) submitted by the Annex-1 countries to
Percentage change was calculated by [(future year-baseline year)/baseline year]*100
Countries that have not submitted their 4th Biennial Reports are not included in this summary.
Some countries have not submitted data in their BR reports on certain parameters. It appears blank on the pop-up text box
Canada has declared its baseline year as 2005 but for the sake of uniformity 1990 data was used as baseline for the calculations.
Many EU countries like the UK show a great decrease in their LULUCF emissions in the projected year 2030 in comparison to the baseline year. This is because by the baseline year i.e. 1990 the LULUCF emissions had
stabilized already and the LULUCF contributed to a very small proportion of the total emissions as these countries had already industrialized. This sector now has become a net sink for these countries showing
a negative trend.
Smaller annex 1 nations whose economy stabilized more recently show increasing trends in emissions from most sectors especially transport and energy sectors.
