Methodologies and guidelines for greenhouse gas assessments
Guidance for the standardized greenhouse assessment of agriculture, forestry and other land use projects PDF
This guide is tailored to financial institutions, multilateral and bilateral donors and their implementing agencies, international organizations and national governments, seeking to quantify the greenhouse mitigation benefits of agriculture, forestry and other land use sector project activities.
Greenhouse gas emissions and fossil energy use from poultry supply chains: Guidelines for assessmentPDF
The guidelines aim to introduce a harmonized international approach to the assessment of the environmental performance of poultry supply chains in a manner that takes account of the specificity of the various production systems involved. It aims to increase understanding of poultry supply chains...
Greenhouse gas emissions and fossil energy use from small ruminant supply chains. Guidelines for assessment.PDF
The guidelines aim to introduce a harmonized international approach to the assessment of the environmental performance of small ruminant supply chains in a manner that takes account of the specificity of the various production systems involved. It aims to increase understanding of small ruminant...
Smallholder dairy methodologyPDF
This methodology presents requirements for developing and assessing a standardized baseline for quantifying greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions in smallholder dairy systems. It also includes guidance for quantifying baseline GHG emissions from dairy production in a defined geographical area...
Methods for estimating greenhouse gas emissions from food systemsPDF
This paper is part of a series detailing novel methodologies for estimating key components of food systems emissions, with a view to disseminate the information in FAOSTAT. It provides a methodology for estimating the GHG emissions associated with emissions from waste in the food system (e.g.,...
Greenhouse gas emissions ruminant supply chains: A global life cycle assessmentPDF
This study looks at the quantification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions arising from livestock food chains, performing a life cycle assessment (LCA). LCA methods are also used to measure other environmental impacts. The study covers the main livestock sectors: beef, dairy, pigs, poultry, small...
