Emissions from the Netherlands: 'How are we doing?'
The Netherlands Informative Inventory Report (IIR) contains information on emission inventories in the Netherlands up to 2008, describing methods, data sources, QA/QC activities carried out and a trend analysis. It aims to provide a better view on applicability (transparency between countries, modeled air quality) and accountability (transparency, completeness, consistency, strengths and weaknesses in methods, uncertainties) of emission data. So basically, it’s useful for inventory reviewers, modelers and emission experts in general.
In the 1990–2008 period, emissions of all gases presented in this report showed a downward trend. Major overall drivers for these trends are emission reductions in industry, cleaner fuels and cleaner cars.
A projections chapter outlines general methods (models), data sources and assumptions used for estimating projected emissions by source sector.
