IGES Biennial Update Report (BUR) Database

1.0
Contributor:

IGES Biennial Update Report (BUR) Database provides key information reported in biennial update reports (BURs) submitted by Non-Annex I Countries to the UNFCCC. According to UNFCCC COP decision 2/CP.17, non-Annex I Parties, consistent with their capabilities and the level of support provided for reporting, should submit their first BUR by December 2014; the least developed country Parties and small island developing States may submit biennial update reports at their discretion. According to the decision, a BUR provides an update to the most recently submitted national communication in various areas including a national GHG inventory, information on national circumstances and institutional arrangements, mitigation actions and their effects, constraints and gaps, related financial, technical and capacity needs, support received, and domestic measurement reporting and verification. A National Inventory Report (NIR) may be submitted separately from the BUR.

This Database does not intend to assess each BUR according to the requirements of the guidelines, rather it aims to show the existing information included in reports.

As of 28 August 2018, v1.0: this version of Database includes only GHG Inventory data, including information on GHG Inventories provided by 42 countries through 58 biennial update reports (42 First BUR and 16 Second BUR), submitted to the UNFCCC as of 24 August 2018.
