ICAT Agriculture Guidance

Sadie Shelton

The ICAT Agriculture Guidance provides methodological guidance for assessing the GHG impacts of agriculture policies that enable or incentivize mitigation practices or technologies that reduce emissions from enteric fermentation and increase soil carbon sequestration in pasture, grazing lands and croplands. It is part of the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) series of guidance for assessing the impacts of policies and actions. This guidance is intended for use by policymakers and practitioners seeking to estimate GHG mitigation impacts in the context of Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) development and implementation, national low carbon strategies, Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and other mechanisms. The primary intended users are developing country governments and their partners who are implementing and assessing agriculture policies.
