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.

This is a Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)-developed tool that helps farmers and pastoralists self-assess and prioritize resilience aspects of their livelihoods in a participatory manner. The survey is both paper and tablet based and assesses the resilience of farmers and pastoralists to climate change organized into governance, environmental, social, economic and agricultural practices using a combination of self-assessment and academic review of livelihood components. There are 54 questions in total of which 26 are mandatory to fully assess resilience. SHARP can be used both as a monitoring and evaluation tool, as well as a learning method integrated into agropastoral/ farmer field schools training curricula. The tool provides immediate results (offline) on the tablets in the field and offers the possibility to analyse results online in more detail. Data can be disaggregated based on gender, production practice type, age group; comparisons can be made across households, within communities, regions and countries.

FAO and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) have been continuously developing the Agro-Ecological Zones (AEZ) methodology over the past 30 years for assessing agricultural resources and potential. Rapid developments in information technology have produced increasingly detailed and manifold global databases, which made the first global AEZ assessment possible in 2000. Since then global AEZ assessments have been performed every few years. With each update of the system, the issues addressed, the size of the database and the number of results have multiplied. This is the most ambitious assessment yet and the goal is to make publicly available the entire database and all results of this assessment. The GAEZ data portal provides free and easy access to data and information. 

The GAEZ data portal provides free and easy access to data and information. It contains many features and capabilities including:

  • Browsing, querying and visualizing spatial datasets;
  • Search by free text, theme, crop, input level, water supply, time period, country and region;
  • Navigation, pan, zoom, identify by location spatial datasets;
  • Analysis and charting tools for tabular data;
  • Preparation of maps and reports for different maps and variables;
  • Download spatial, tabular, and metadata option for fast extraction of data and user friendly interface.

This methodology presents requirements for development and assessment of a standardized baseline for quantification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions in smallholder dairy systems. 1 It also includes guidance for quantification of baseline GHG emissions from dairy production in a defined geographical area within a country, for quantification of project GHG emissions, leakage, and net emission reductions due to project implementation.
