This publication is the first ever annual GHG emission inventory report of Phitsanulok Municipality, Thailand. It presents the GHG-related data for two types of inventories: (i) Municipal GHG inventory; referring to guidelines by ‘ICLEI (Local Governments for Sustainability) Local Government Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO); and (ii) City/Community GHG Inventory referring to the GPC Pilot Version 1.0 (http://www.ghgprotocol.org/city-accounting).
Readers will find primary and secondary data collected by the Phitsanulok City staff, which were reviewed by IGES as well as a 3rd party expert (an independent local consultant who has worked closely with Phitsanulok City for over 10 years on international projects). The data reported for municipal-level GHG inventory covered activities in calendar year 2013, while the data for city-level GHG inventory covered activities in calendar year 2012.
Besides the key activity data required for the GHG emissions inventory report, this report also: (i) proposes a replicable model framework for ‘Measuring/Monitoring, Reporting and Verification’ (MRV) of city-level greenhouse gas emissions; (ii) describes Phitsanulok Municipality's ongoing and upcoming efforts to make the city greener, more energy-efficient and low carbon.
