About SAMPLES

SAMPLES is a global research program that supports countries around the world to measure greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture and identify mitigation options compatible with food security. It addresses the dearth of reliable information about GHG emissions from agriculture in tropical countries. SAMPLES scientists work with developing countries to improve data on agricultural GHG emissions and mitigation potentials.

With better information, governments, non-governmental organizations, and farmers can:
Identify high-production, low-emissions development trajectories in the agricultural sector.
Participate in the emerging green economy and access climate finance.
Strengthen tropical countries’ negotiating positions in the global climate discussion.
