Estimating methane emissions from enteric fermentation using Tier 2 methodWebsite
This e-learning course aims to provide practical guidance for data collection and emissions estimation from livestock enteric fermentation, using the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s Tier 2 method, as described in the 2006 IPCC Guidelines.
Preparing a greenhouse gas inventory under the Enhanced Transparency FrameworkWebsite
This e-learning course introduces basic concepts on Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV), UNFCCC reporting requirements and the Enhanced transparency framework (ETF). It provides an overview of how to set up a National greenhouse gas inventory (NGHGI), looking at its cycle, main elements...
Workshop materials on greenhouse gas inventory systemsWebsite
A series of workshops held in collaboration with the Partnership for Transparency in the Paris Agreement and UNFCCC aimed at increasing knowledge on the inventory of GHG emissions and removals for the energy and AFOLU sectors.
Greenhouse gas assessment and mitigation in agriculture: concepts, methods and simulation toolsWebsite
This course provides better understanding of the sources and drivers controlling greenhouse gas emissions from cropping systems.
Joint OCB/GSP Training workshop for reporting soil Carbon Stock Change in national greenhouse gas inventoriesWebsite
A training workshop on ‘Reporting Soil Carbon Stock Change in National Greenhouse Gas Inventories’ took place in December 2022 in Bangkok (Thailand) with the participation of more than 60 experts from 42 countries. It was jointly organized by the FAO’s Office of Climate Change, Biodiversity and...
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...
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...
