This activity report includes a summary of a meeting held in Yokohama, Japan on 23-25 February 2010 to review the use of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) guidelines on forest greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories particularly with regard to the use of remote sensing and ground-based methods of data acquisition on C stocks and area changes of forests. The meeting identified a number of key areas where the IPCC Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (TFI) could provide advice to the inventory compilers on new emission factors and on areas needing fresh or revised guidance. It also provided recommendations for future actions.
