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 commitment period it is not possible to report a consistent
time-series. Estimates for the
are only available for 1990 and 2008 onwards. The LULUCF estimates reported here
represent the initial assigned amount calculation (1990) and the commitment period
(2008-2012) accounting quantities. Emission estimates for some subsectors are not
available for States and Territories due to confidentiality constraints.
