First released in 2012, the Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT) is an appraisal system providing a carbon balance for activities implemented in the entire agricultural sector, including Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU), inland and coastal wetlands, fisheries and aquaculture, agricultural inputs and infrastructure. 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 reference scenario. The tool is based on IPCC methodology and complemented with data from FAOSTAT, UNFCCC and other relevant scientific sources.

This tool aims to guide developing countries in planning towards the preparation of their first Biennial Transparency Report (BTR) and participation in the Technical Expert Review (TER). It facilitates the long-term planning and the necessary institutional arrangements that countries should have in place to guarantee the sustainable implementation of this report. The guidance provided is complemented by a series of questions that allow users to understand their current reporting status and generate an indicative country-driven roadmap to meet the BTR deadline in December 2024.

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 list of AD and parameters that must be collected to estimate all categories within these sectors.

This tool must be used in conjunction with the 2006 IPCC Guidelines that provides more explanations on the information needed.

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.

The GHG database on feed-crops is a global database of emissions, emission intensities and life cycle inventory for 5 main crops: maize, wheat, barley, soybean and cassava.  It can be used by a wide range of users including the livestock industry, researchers, governments and others in need of data for analysis, awareness raising, planning, etc. Users will find the database an easy-to-use tool that provides downloadable information on emissions and emission intensities for the 5 main crops disaggregated by production system, agro-ecological zone, country and region. It is an initiative of the Animal Production and Health Division, produced in collaboration with the Livestock Environmental Assessment and Performance (LEAP) Partnership.
