Abstract: This study analyses the 1990 and current Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions data from Annex I countries and assesses the impacts of LULUCF (Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry) activities of countries in meeting their Kyoto targets. In a 'business-as-usual' scenario for the period 1990-2010, the total GHG emissions, excluding LULUCF activities of Annex I Parties, would decrease by 3.7%, whilst a 6.1% decrease would be achieved if LULUCF activities were considered. Therefore, LULUC activities play a significant role in ensuring nations meet their Kyoto targets.
