On the 2nd and 3rd June 2021 the Inventories and Nationally Determined Contributions Network held two virtual meetings. The purpose of the meetings was to increase the visibility of international collaborative efforts with presentations by international research partners on inventory research and capability building initiatives, followed by a facilitated discussion. 

There were presentations from the AFOLU IPCC-TFI TSU, The US EPA, FAO-Enhanced Transparency Framework Network, GHGMI, ACIAR, NZAGRC and the Modeling and Inventory Development Subgroup of the Low Carbon Livestock Research Network. 

Collectively, the meetings were attended by nearly 60 participants from Africa, Europe, North American, ASEAN and LAC countries with diverse backgrounds in Inventory compilation, research and development and international collaboration.

Some key themes emerged during the discussion session in both meetings following the presentations. Firstly, international multi-partner collaboration will ensure we avoid any duplication of work. Participants discussed the importance of inventory frameworks such as institutional Arrangements and having a clear inventory structure both for personnel and data management. Identifying and addressing inventory capacity gaps is a focus for all research partners and avoiding outsourcing resources and ensuring regional institutions are supported to develop inventory capacity is crucial.

The meeting report and a summary of each presentation is below, and the meeting recordings for the 2nd June and 3rd June are now available.
