As the Kyoto Protocol accounting rules that apply to the estimation of emissions and removals from
LULUCF activities differs between the initial assigned amount calculation and
the Kyoto Protocol First Commitment Period it is not possible to report a consistent time-series.
Estimates for the National Greenhouse Gas Inventory Total - including LULUCF
and the LULUCF sector are only available for 1990 and 2008 onwards.
The LULUCF estimates reported here represent land use change in the base year (1990)
and deforestation, afforestation and reforestation during the first commitment
period (2008-2012). Emission estimates for some subsectors are not available for
States and Territories due to confidentiality constraints.
