Data submitted to the UN Ozone Secretariat highlighting the trend of ODS consumption (calculated as Production (if any) + imports - exports) in Tuvalu. Ozone Depleting Substances calculated here are HCFCs and Methal Bromide.
time series data on the consumption of CFC 12 & CFC 115 in Tuvalu in the past and submitted to Ozone Secretariat. This data was reported in the National Compliance Action Strategy to implement the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer in Tuvalu
By volume from DWM data, 38% of incoming waste is from households and 62% from other sources, including green waste. Landfill sample, gained over 6 days featured much less construction waste than DWM data, given the shorter timeframe and put the ratio at 53% household and 47% other sources.

Greenhouse Gas Emission - Of the total 2014 emissions of 18.467 Gg CO2-e, 11.214 Gg (61%) can be attributed to the energy sector. The main GHGs emitted by Tuvalu are CO2 (60.4% of total emissions), CH4 (16.4%), and N2O (23.1%)
Trends in ODS Consumption - As a developing country, Tuvalu is listed under Article 5 of the Montreal Protocol, and therefore provided with assistance to phase-out consumption of CFCs by 2010, HCFCs by 2030, and HFCs by 2024.
The Strandings of Oceania database is a collaborative project between SPREP, WildMe and the South Pacific Whale Research Consortium to record stranding and beachcast data for whales, dolphins and dugongs throughout the Pacific. We use a platform called Flukebook. An account is needed to view or use data within Flukebook but the data is available for download here. You can submit data direct into Flukebook (preferably while logged in) or send a completed data form to SPREP for upload. Guidance on using the database is available :
