Abstract: The quality of the EC-inventory depends strongly on the quality of the national GHG inventories (comparability of the methodologies, definitions etc.). For the agricultural sector, workshops to improve the quality of GHG were organized in February 2003 and in October 2004. Due to the large uncertainty that emissions from agricultural soils add to the total inventories, the latter workshop focused on issues relevant for category 4D. A number of recommendations for improving the EC inventory regarding coherent and comprehensive reporting of emissions (including air pollutants), data gaps, and addressing the availability of national and disaggregated emission factors and other relevant parameters were formulated and will be presented in detail and analyzed on the basis of the most recent GHG inventories for the year 2003.
