ABSTRACT
The article presents the study conducted by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) which reviews the quality, comparability and the emissions inventories which vary between developed and developing nations in the U.S. Accordingly, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change submits inventories that estimate the greenhouse gas emissions in the parties therein. In this regard, the GAO reviews the invetories of comparability and quality of inventories and barriers to improvement.
