Estimating GHG Emissions and Carbon Sequestration in Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use with EX-ACT (Facilitated Course)
Do you know that Agriculture, Forestry and Land Use Change (AFOLU) as a whole is the second largest emitter of greenhouse gas (GHG)? Are you also aware that AFOLU, uniquely, also contribute to carbon sequestration as co-benefits through productive and sustainable landscape management?
GHG accounting in the AFOLU sectors is an important indicator and integral to the design and planning of landscape interventions. The EX-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT), developed by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), is a useful tool for estimating GHG emissions and carbon sequestration in AFOLU projects.
