Estimating greenhouse gas emissions in agriculture: A manual to address data requirements for developing countries

Sadie Shelton

This manual provides a tool and methodology to help identify, build and access the minimum set of activity data needed for GHG estimation as well as a guide to conducting a Tier 1 GHG inventory following IPCC guidelines. It reports a step-by-step process on how to use this minimum set to build a national GHG emission dataset for agriculture and land use, referencing how FAOSTAT data can be used in the Tier 1 inventory.
