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. 



Honduras, in Central America is home to some eight million people. Agriculture is the main source of income for many families. The country is also highly susceptible to adverse natural events such as hurricanes and droughts. Measures to mitigate the impact of these shocks are focused on strengthening the adaptation capacity of households.
