EDGAR - Emissions Database for Global Atmospheric Research

EDGAR is a multipurpose, independent, global database of anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollution on Earth. EDGAR provides independent emission estimates compared to what reported by European Member States or by Parties under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), using international statistics and a consistent IPCC methodology.
EDGAR provides both emissions as national totals and gridmaps at 0.1 x 0.1 degree resolution at global level, with yearly, monthly and up to hourly data.

The newest version of the EDGAR GHG database (6.0), covering the time span of 1970 to 2018, is now publicly available. This new release maintains and updates the features that have made EDGAR a highly regarded reference in the international debate around GHG emissions and their control: world coverage by both national and gridded data, very detailed sectorial resolution following the IPCC guidelines, long time series and coverage of both GHGs and the most relevant air pollutants.
