Summarise lessons learned from the pilot CO2 and CH4 pilot product delivered to UNFCCC for the 1st GST
The lessons learned have been compiled and. Slides are available as back-up slides of 2023 CEOS-SIT TW presentation 2.5_Meijer_GHG_Task_Team_v1
Key take-home message:
A number of challenges have been noted that need to be addressed for the GST product. However, it’s also important to note the substantial interest from both the public and policymakers in the product.
As noted at the WMO Workshop and the press release on these products, there is a clear need for this information with over 50 countries not reporting emissions in the last decade.
These lessons learned provide the context and motivation to advance and improve on these products.
