The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has conducted an analysis of the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program’s (GAFSP) Public Sector Window portfolio in the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector, for its climate change mitigation potential. 

The objective of the task “GHG accounting analyses for the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program” was to examine the climate change mitigation potential of 44 GAFSP investments in the public sector window and Missing Middle Initiative (MMI) pilot projects using the EX-Ante Carbon-balance Tool. The task was carried out from August 2020 to March 2021 in four major steps and associated component outputs: i) brief inception report; ii) data collection phase, consultations, analysis and drafting of the report; iii) draft final report and draft Prezi presentations; and iv) final report, final Prezi presentations.
