The current geographic distributions (available at least at country level and in some cases at subnational level) of about 8800 livestock breeds, as recorded in the Domestic Animal Diversity Information System (DAD-IS), are being used to model suitable areas for breeds under current and expected future conditions, taking several temperature and humidity parameters into account (i.e. maximum temperature of warmest month, minimum temperature of coldest month, annual precipitation, precipitation seasonality measured as coefficient of variation, mean temperature of wettest month and of driest month).

To predict areas suitable under future environmental conditions, users have the option to choose among severalclimate change models (e.g. the Hadley Global Environment Model 2 – Earth System https://verc.enes.org/models/earthsystem-models/metoffice-hadley-centre/hadgem2-es) and four “scenarios” (the so-called representative concentration pathways - http://sedac.ipcc-data.org/ddc/ar5_scenario_process/RCPs.html) representing a range from optimistic [RCP 2.6] to rather pessimistic [RCP 8.5] constellations).

The FAOSTAT Emissions Agriculture database provides country-level estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions based on FAOSTAT activity data and using Tier 1 computations, following 2006 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. Technical details of specific activity data used and relevant computational steps employed are given in the Methodology and Quality Information section of the metadata for each of the sectors in the domain.

The Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT) is an appraisal system developed by FAO providing estimates of the impact of agriculture and forestry development projects, programmes and policies on the carbon-balance. The carbon-balance is defined as the net balance from all greenhouse gases (GHGs) expressed in CO2 equivalent that were emitted or sequestered due to project implementation as compared to a business-as-usual scenario.
