Tools on greenhouse gas assessments for enhancing transparency
Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model (GLEAM): Model descriptionPDF
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...
UNFCCC quality assurance (QA) processWebsite
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...
Projections of greenhouse gas emissions and removals: An introductory guide for practitionersPDF
This paper aims to provide a short practical introduction about developing GHG projections, targeted at policymakers and other climate practitioners from developing countries with limited experience in this field. The paper provides an overview of key steps for preparing GHG projections, and...
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...
EX-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT)Website
Based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) methodology, EX-ACT allows users to estimate the impact of agriculture, forestry and other land-use (AFOLU) investments and policies on GHG emission levels.
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...
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.
Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model – interactive GLEAM-iWebsite
GLEAM-i is the first open, user-friendly and livestock-specific tool designed to support governments, project planners, producers, industry and civil society organizations to calculate greenhouse gas emissions using IPCC Tier 2 methods. GLEAM-I can be used in the preparation of national...
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 (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...
Greenhouse Gas Data Management (GHG-DM) toolOther
This excel-based package helps GHG inventory compilers manage the information related to the activity data (AD) and parameters in the agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU); energy; industrial processes and product use (IPPU); and waste sectors. Each excel file contains a comprehensive...
U.S. EPA toolkit for building national GHG inventory systemsWebsite
The U.S. EPA toolkit for building national GHG inventory systems is intended to help national GHG inventory compilers build and advance a national GHG inventory system that suits their national context. It includes pre-defined national system templates. Completed templates (adapted to reflect...
