PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency is the national institute for strategic policy analyses in the fields of the environment, nature and spatial planning. For global CO2 emissions from 1970 to 2008 it is used the EDGAR 4.2 data set for greenhouse gases, the results from a joint project of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, published in November 2011. This data set provides greenhouse gas emissions per country and on a 0.1 x 0.1 degree grid for all anthropogenic sources identified by the IPCC (JRC/PBL, 2011) for the period 1970-2008. Although the data set distinguishes about 25 sources categories, emissions are estimated for well over 100 detailed categories as identified in the Revised 1996 IPCC guidelines for compilation of emission inventories (IPCC, 1996). The core EDGAR 4.2 dataset was extended to 2010 using a fast-track approach based on IEA (2012) fuel-use trends for 2009-2010, for the greenhouse gas section in last year’s CO2 report of IEA (Olivier and Janssens-Maenhout, 2012) and it is this extended EDGAR 4.2 FT2010 data set that is used for this assessment.
