GHG net emissions/removals by LUCF (Mt of CO2 equivalent)

GHG net emissions/removals by LUCF refers to changes in atmospheric levels of all greenhouse gases attributable to forest and land-use change activities; including but not limited to (1) emissions and removals of CO2 from decreases or increases in biomass stocks due to forest management; logging; fuelwood collection; etc.; (2) conversion of existing forests and natural grasslands to other land uses; (3) removal of CO2 from the abandonment of formerly managed lands (e.g. croplands and pastures); and (4) emissions and removals of CO2 in soil associated with land-use change and management. For Annex-I countries under the UNFCCC; these data are drawn from the annual GHG inventories submitted to the UNFCCC by each country; for non-Annex-I countries; data are drawn from the most recently submitted National Communication where available. Because of differences in reporting years and methodologies; these data are not generally considered comparable across countries. Data are in million metric tons.
