Smallholder Dairy Methodology: Draft Methodology for Quantification of GHG Emission Reductions from Improved Management in Smallholder Dairy Production Systems using a Standardized Baseline

Sadie S

The methodology, outlined in this report, presents requirements for a standardized baseline, guidance for quantification of GHG emission reductions in smallholder dairy production, quantification of project emission intensity, and quantification of net emission reductions. It also outlines monitoring methodology for data, monitored and not monitored parameters. Total emissions are calculated by multiplying the annual FPCM yield by the appropriate emission factors.
