Building capacity for more transparent greenhouse gas inventories
The adoption of tier 2 methodology for enteric fermentation: survey result (March 2021)PDF
In March 2021, FAO conducted a survey on the use of the Tier 2 methodology (as provided by the 2006 IPCC Guidelines, Volume 4, Chapter 10) for estimating methane emissions from enteric fermentation. Survey participants were members of the Transparency in agriculture and land use network. Results...

Guide for peer review of national GHG inventoriesWebsite
The UNFCCC Quality assurance (QA) process is offered (upon request) to developing countries wishing to improve their GHG Inventories and Inventory Management systems. The process helps countries to get prepared for the official reviews of their Biennial update reports and upcoming Biennial...
Estimating GHG in agriculture: A manual to address data requirements for developing countriesPDF
This manual provides tool and methodology to help identify, build and access the minimum set of activity data needed to estimate greenhouse gases. Users are provided with step-by-step guidance on how to use this minimum set to build a default, yet complete national GHG emission dataset for...
Understanding countries’ status and challenges for the estimation of carbon stock changes from mineral soils in national greenhouse gas ...PDF
Despite the growing global support for capacity building to improve soil management, the estimation and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals, especially from mineral soils in national GHG inventories, is still very limited. In 2021, the Institute for Global Environmental...
