Abstract

Concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has increased rapidly due to anthropogenic activities resulting in significant increase in the temperature of the earth causing global warming. This is quantified using an indicator like global warming potential (GWP) and expressed as tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent. Assessing the greenhouse gas emissions is an important step towards making quantifiable emission reductions. This study focuses on accounting of the amount of three important greenhouses gases namely carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) of 2 major cities in India namely Delhi and Greater Mumbai (population above 10 million as per 2011 census) using national inventories. Emissions from key sectors like electricity, transportation, industries, agriculture, waste and others have been computed. Country specific emission factors have also been used to reduce estimation uncertainties
