Good Interactive Tool for Students

The UNFCCC Secretariat is working with Google and the Danish Government, as the host of COP 15, to display official UNFCCC greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data for Annex I Parties using Google Maps.

Users can select a world map displaying: total national GHG emissions or removals, as well as emissions or removals from various sectors; absolute numbers (in Gg CO2 equivalent); or relative changes in emissions (in percent compared to the base year level).

This data may be particularly valuable in negotiation simulations, where students “represent” individual countries or regions.
