In the Workshop, it was discussed from the aspect of how to promote better emission inventory in EANET region and pointed out as follows.

- Both Emission inventory and monitoring data are important for EANET.

- There are different stages about the emission inventories among EANET countries. The capacity building activities such as the development of some documents, the dissemination of manuals and worksheets referring other activities, exchange of experiences and information of researches, and providing trainings are important. Therefore, it had better to take a step by step approach.

- Harmonization on the methodology of the development of the emission inventory in the region with flexibility depending on the situation of each country may be useful. Another approach which utilizes the individual national methodology could also be used in order to seek for the accuracy of national inventories. Data of emission inventories should be comparable among countries whatever methodology applied.

- It was recommended that the importance of the emission inventories in EANET should be reported to EANET body such as SAC or IG.
