Help - Emissions Slovensky English

This part of the web site covers information about greenhouse gas emissions being produced in Slovakia. The source of the data is the CRF Reporter database being processed in 2007, that contains the official and verified data for period 1990 - 2005. According to UNFCCC 1990 is regarded as a "base year", i.e. basal year that is used for calculation of Kjoto quota for particular countries. Slovak Republic is obliged to decrease emissions in the period 2008-2012 by 8%.
