GLEAM-interactive (GLEAM-i) brings the core functionalities of the FAO Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model to the public in a single Excel file. GLEAM-i is the first open, user-friendly and livestock specific tool designed to support governments, project planners, producers, industry and civil society organizations to calculate emissions using Tier 2 methods. GLEAM-i can be used in the preparation of national inventories and in ex-ante project evaluation for the assessment of intervention scenarios in animal husbandry, feed and manure management.

The current geographic distributions (available at least at country level and in some cases at subnational level) of about 8800 livestock breeds, as recorded in the Domestic Animal Diversity Information System (DAD-IS), are being used to model suitable areas for breeds under current and expected future conditions, taking several temperature and humidity parameters into account (i.e. maximum temperature of warmest month, minimum temperature of coldest month, annual precipitation, precipitation seasonality measured as coefficient of variation, mean temperature of wettest month and of driest month).

To predict areas suitable under future environmental conditions, users have the option to choose among severalclimate change models (e.g. the Hadley Global Environment Model 2 – Earth System https://verc.enes.org/models/earthsystem-models/metoffice-hadley-centre/hadgem2-es) and four “scenarios” (the so-called representative concentration pathways - http://sedac.ipcc-data.org/ddc/ar5_scenario_process/RCPs.html) representing a range from optimistic [RCP 2.6] to rather pessimistic [RCP 8.5] constellations).

The FAOSTAT Emissions Agriculture database provides country-level estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions based on FAOSTAT activity data and using Tier 1 computations, following 2006 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. Technical details of specific activity data used and relevant computational steps employed are given in the Methodology and Quality Information section of the metadata for each of the sectors in the domain.

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.
