data and datasets flagshipThe Flagship Project on “LCA Data and databases” has as its main objective to support the development of databases and contained datasets according to the Global Guidance Principles (GGP) and in line with emerging procedures and practices for review. Within this project, the co-chairs of the Flagship on Life Cycle Data are coordinating a practical exercise on the review of datasets in three countries: Australia, Chile and Thailand.

The datasets to be reviewed are the ones that are considered to be crucial for the national databases in these countries. For this endeavour we need two reviewers per dataset, one to examine the data with a sector and/ or country view and one to examine them from a LCA methodology perspective.

The timing of this exercise is maximum a month in September/October 2016. Reviewers will be asked to assess a list of criteria, interacting with their paired colleague, and will sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). Become one of the reviewers and participate to the progress towards more and better quality LCA data globally.

If you are interested, please consult the Terms of Reference and contact the UNEP Secretariat.

This call is open until 30 July 2016.
