Since 1995, the secretariat is located in Bonn, Germany.

Background to the training

Last year, 30 students were selected from a pool of 210 applicants from 72 countries. This programme was a four-week intensive training course, and structured to address the current gaps, which would allow the trainees to undertake national GHG inventories upon their return. Trainees themselves came willing to participate and engage with the group, and expressed an eagerness to bring the knowledge learned back to their teams at home.
