All links in the interactive version lead directly to the required section pages, original data sources, or useful supplementary resources.

The text of the book is available in an online and print versions in both the English and the Russian languages, as well as an online training tool, which is intended to support the estimation of GHG emissions and the preparation of national inventories by Central Asian and other countries, which are non-Annex I parties under the UNFCCC. An interactive version of the tool is available upon registration at: http://escap.igce.ru/

The development of this Practical Handbook on Methodologies for GHG Emissions Inventories and Paris Agreement Reporting was made possible through the ESCAP regional project on Supporting countries in Asia-Pacific to meet commitments to the Paris Agreement funded by the Russian Federation.
