Methods and guidance to support MRV of livestock emissions: Methods for data collection, analysis and summary results from a pilot baseline survey for the Kenya dairy NAMA

Sadie S

This working paper documents the first attempt at implementing a survey and analyzing the survey data to establish a standardized performance baseline using survey data from central Kenya. The report summarizes the requirements of the Smallholder Dairy Methodology, the methods used for sampling, data collection and data analysis, the main results of data analysis and recommendations for future similar initiatives to quantify standardized baselines for dairy GHG mitigation programs. Appendices present data collection tools, summary statistics, and the data used to estimate parameters in Kenya’s Tier 2 dairy GHG inventory. *
