Updates, new country and slight changes in method

22nd November 2010

Assessments for Annex I countries were updated by including latest emission inventories submitted to the UNFCCC and updating Party-preferred options for LULUCF accounting. Chile added as new country. The rating on country pages is shown more differentiated. In a new reference pathway (baseline), the historical emission data is extended by applying new (lower) emission growth rates that include the estimated effects of the current recession. The resulting emission level by 2050 is in the middle of the range in IPCC's Special Report on Emission Scenarios (IPCC, 2000).
