Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programme

Strengthening Inventory capacities in Benin

From 01/07/2017 1:00 To 30/07/2017 1:00
Location: FAO HQ

In July, following previous work carried out in the context of the ‘Technical Assistance for Sustainable National Greenhouse Gas Inventory Management Systems in West Africa (West Africa GHG Project)’ in 2015,  MICCA will receive a delegation of the AFOLU inventory team of Benin for a week long targeted technical support aimed at strengthening inventory capacities.

Preliminary exchanges with Benin’s experts allowed to best plan the type of support requested that entails the upgrading of the inventory from tier 1 to tier 2, methods and strategies for the gap filling of data and the estimate of certain parameters for the Agriculture section of the inventory, as well as the upgrading of the land representation from approach 1 to 2 and 3, and the use of FAO databases for the FAT component of the inventory.
