What are the sources of the GHG data presented?
The GHG data are data officially reported by Parties to the UNFCCC secretariat. For non-Annex I Parties, the data are taken from their national communications, and for Annex I Parties, from their annual GHG inventory submissions. The exact sources of data are provided here. The population data are provided by the Population Division, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations. While the source of the GDP (at market prices, constant 2000 US$) data is the World Bank, the data are accessed through the Common Database of the United Nations Statistics Division. The population and GDP data are displayed on the GHG data interface with kind permission of the United Nations and the World Bank; the United Nations and the World Bank have regulations concerning the use of their data and these organizations must be consulted before downloading population and GDP data for further use.
