Abstract

Belgium submitted two National Communications (NC) to the UNFCCC: NC1 in January 1997 and NC2 in August 1997. The Belgian climate policy is formulated at the federal level, requiring co-operation between regional and federal administrations. Around a fifth of the total area of Belgium is covered by forests. Around 80% of the productive forests are in the Walloon region. Reported values for LUCF categories give a potential of 2,057 kt eq. CO2.y-1. Given the existing Regional Forest Inventories (RFI): RFI1 for 1984 and RFI2 for 1999, an estimate has been made to consolidate reported data. Afforestation, deforestation and reforestation activities are calculated according the IPCC special report on land use, land-use change and forestry. Keywords. Forest inventory, C-sink, C-accounting, Belgium.
