Estimating Climate Impacts: A Guidebook on GHG Emissions Impact Analysis
Type(s) of Tool
Country of Origin
Date of Development
The guidebook elaborates on measuring and quantifying an infrastructure project’s GHG emissions/GHG emission reductions. Its main objectives are to describe relevant GHG accounting principles as well as related concepts and methods, outline the basic process for quantifying and reporting GHG impacts resulting from climate finance projects and describe the role of project-level impact analysis in climate finance project preparation.
Infrastructure professionals or city officials understand the importance of undertaking a project level analysis to facilitate the implementation of sustainable infrastructure projects and gained an understanding of how greenhouse gas (GHG) emission impacts should be considered and calculated (for instance by utilising C40’s Integrated Impacts Assessment Tool).
The project’s total GHG emission/emission reduction through sustainable infrastructure compared to a baseline scenario is considered.
