Greenhouse gas emissions indicators: data sources and methods, chapter 5


5. Caveats and limitations

Although reported in the National Inventory Report, emissions and removals from the land-use, land use change and forestry sector are excluded from national totals and subsequently not reported as part of the Greenhouse Gas Emissions indicators.

As part of the continuous improvement process, recalculations are performed annually on Canada's previously reported greenhouse gas emission estimates, to reflect updates to source data and estimation methodology. Chapter 8 of the National Inventory Report provides a summary of the recalculations that occurred due to methodological changes and/or refinements since the previous submission, with a brief description, justification and summary of individual impacts on previously reported emission estimates. This chapter also provides details on specific inventory improvements implemented in 2017 as well as planned improvements.
