New Guide on Data Collection for Emission Quantification in Chinese Cities
As part of the TRANSfer project, GIZ China published the “Monitoring Greenhouse Gas Emissions of Transport Activities in Chinese Cities – A Step-by-Step Guide to Data Collection”. It aims at enabling environmental authorities in Chinese cities to generate a regular emissions inventory of the transport sector. Considering local traffic situations and data availability, the guide outlines three different approaches to calculate transport activities.
Hereby the report refers to the calculation tool China Road Transport Emission Model which is based on the European Handbook for Emission Factors (HBEFA). It is currently used by the China Sustainable Urban Transport Research Centre (CUSTReC) to calculate emissions in the cities of Chengdu, Suzhou and Harbin. CUSTReC develops the emission monitoring system for the Large City Congestion and Carbon Reduction project of the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) and managed by the World Bank and the Chinese Ministry of Transport.
