Tools for greenhouse gas assessments
The emissions overview tool gives users an overview of emissions and trends in the AFOLU sector for user-specified countries. It also contextualizes emissions within respective region(s), continent(s) and the world. This information can support countries preparing nationally appropriate...
Quality assurance/Quality control (QA/QC) and verificationWebsite
The Quality assurance/Quality control (QA/QC) and verification tool allows users to compare national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory data for the AFOLU sector as reported to the UNFCCC with data from the FAOSTAT emissions database. The tool can help countries improve their capacity to report on...
Global livestock environmental assessment model (GLEAM)Website
The global livestock environmental assessment model (GLEAM) is a modelling framework that simulates the interaction of activities and processes involved in livestock production and the environment. It is designed to analyse multiple environmental dimensions, such as feed use, greenhouse gas...
EX-Ante carbon balance tool (EX-ACT) for value chainsPDF
Mainly used for simple value chains in developing countries, EX-ACT VC is a multi-agent based tool appraising input supply, production, transport, processing and using numerous indicators.
EX-Ante carbon balance tool (EX-ACT)Website
The EX-ACT tool is an appraisal system which provides estimates related to the impact of agriculture and forestry development projects, programmes and policies on the carbon-balance.
Collect Earth is a tool that enables data collection and analysis of high resolution satellite imagery through Google Earth for a wide variety of purposes, including Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) assessments and quantification of deforestation, reforestation and desertification.
Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model: documentationPDF
The Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model is a modelling framework that simulates the bio-physical processes and activities along livestock supply chains under a life cycle assessment approach. It provides a detailed description of herd dynamics, feed rations and manure management...
Global database of greenhouse gas emissions related to feed cropsWebsite
The greenhouse gas database on feed-crops is a global database of emissions, emission intensities and life cycle inventory for 5 main crops: maize, wheat, barley, soybean and cassava. It can be used by a wide range of users including the livestock industry, researchers, governments and others in...
FAOSTAT Emissions - AgricultureWebsite
The database contains all the emissions produced in the different agricultural emissions categories providing a picture of the contribution to the total amount of GHG emissions from agriculture.
FAOSTAT Emissions - Land useWebsite
The database contains the GHG emissions and removals produced in the three Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) categories, namely cropland, forest land, and grassland that are part of the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector.
FAOSTAT Emissions sharesWebsite
The database disseminates data on the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions shares of agriculture and related land use to the total emissions from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) economic sectors, by gas, country and year, from 1990 onwards.
FAOSTAT Emissions intensitiesWebsite
The database disseminates data on intensities of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by unit of product for a selection of agricultural commodities.
