Application of the 2006 IPCC guidelines, capacity building and quality assurance of the waste sector of the GHG emission inventory of Peru (ICAT/UNEP-DTU)
This project consisted in a quality assurance (QA) exercise focused on the capacity building of the national compilation team of the waste sector. Gauss performed a QA/QC of the national system and the waste sector of the national GHG emission inventory 1994 – 2019, provided capacity building on the elaboration of the waste sector using the 2006 IPCC guidelines, and developed a QA/QC plan and manual for the waste sector. The QA was developed together with the compilation team, identifying areas of improvement of the inventory and providing customised training to the stakeholders. As a result of this project, Peru updated the waste sector of its inventory to the 2006 IPCC Guidelines. An additional key outcome of the project was the development of an improvement plan for the further enhancement of the inventory.
