Second national greenhouse gas inventory: Samoa's greenhouse gas emissions: 1994-2007

Description

Abstract:

The purpose of the GHG inventory is to quantify Samoa’s contribution to the build up of GHGs in the earth’s atmosphere, which is the underlying cause of climate change and sea level rise. Although Samoa is a small country, with a population of approximately 180,000 people, the government recognises that all countries must do their bit to cut global GHG emissions. As a developing country Samoa aims to voluntarily cut GHG emissions without placing undue constraints on social or economic development. The GHG inventory helps to monitor progress towards this goal and also provides an indication of where the biggest GHG savings can be made.
