Planificación nacional para la mitigación de GEI en la agricultura: Documento de orientación
(June 2014)


El documento de orientación proporciona a los responsables de las políticas nacionales, asesores y otras partes interesadas en el sector de la agricultura una introducción de los principales enfoques de planificación de mitigación del cambio climático y de los elementos clave que pueden necesitar ser considerados en el proceso de planificación de los sistemas agrícolas.

En él se describen dos de los principales enfoques de la planificación de mitigación de gases de efecto invernadero en los países en desarrollo: estrategias de desarrollo con bajas emisiones (LEDS) y Acciones Nacionales Apropiadas de Mitigación (NAMAs). Explica las posibles relaciones entre estos enfoques y su estatus.


  

 Agriculture, forestry and other land use emissions by sources and removals by sinks

A new FAO report provides the most comprehensive knowledge to date on the regional and sectoral distribution of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU) activities. The data is made available for free through the FAOSTAT Emissions database.

The FAO GHG data are an integral part of the Working Group III contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The new analysis highlights the role of agriculture in climate change, helping to clarify the critical importance of crop and livestock production, deforestation and peatland degradation. Better information on AFOLU emissions is critical in many developing countries, given the potential to identify and fund mitigation actions that can usefully bridge national food security, resilience, mitigation and development goals into one coherent package.

 National integrated mitigation planning in agriculture: A review paper
 (March 2013)
 
This review of national greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation planning in the agriculture sector provides national policy makers and others in the   agriculture sector with an overview of national mitigation planning processes to aid them in identifying the relevance of these processes for promoting agricultural development.
 


 



  

Emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero del sector agrícola fueron incluidos por primera vez en el Anuario Estadístico de la FAO de 2013

La edición de 2013 del Anuario estadístico de la FAO publicado hoy aporta nuevos datos sobre la contribución de la agricultura al cambio climático, las tendencias en el hambre y la malnutrición y el estado de la base de recursos naturales de los que depende la producción mundial de alimentos.

Las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero de la agricultura crecieron un 1,6 por ciento anual durante la década que siguió al año 2000, según la nueva información que aporta el anuario de la FAO, con una producción anual total del sector en 2010 que alcanza 5 000 millones de toneladas de equivalente de dióxido de carbono (CO2 eq, una medida utilizada para comparar y sumar diferentes gases de efecto invernadero). Esto equivale al 10 por ciento de todas las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero antropogénicas. Para acceder al Anuario Estadistico de la FAO de 2013, haga el clic aqui.

Agriculture, forestry and other land use mitigation project database
(January 2013)
 
This paper presents the second analysis of the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use Mitigation Project (AFOLU MP) database. This follow-up study includes 575 projects from 12 di­erent registries. As with the first publication, this paper summarizes the insights that have been gained from the analysis of the updated database.

MICCA Series 2
 Agriculture, forestry and other land use database

(November 2010)

The AFOLU MP database is a compilation of publicly available data on mitigation projects in agriculture and forestry. This paper describes the analysis and output of the database and the implications for the development of mitigation activities.

MICCA Series 1
Global survey of agricultural mitigation projects

(August 2010)

This global survey of agricultural mitigation projects provides a summary of the state-of-the-art of di­erent projects currently developed in this sector. It contains data on 50 agricultural projects focusing on climate change, of which 22 were developed specifically with a greenhouse gas mitigation objective.
