FAOSTAT
Tools & Applications

FAOSTAT

FAOSTAT provides free access to food and agriculture data (including crop, livestock and forestry sub-sectors) for over 245 countries and territories, covering all FAO regional groupings from 1961 to the most recent year available. The platform covers a wide range of data, including agricultural production, trade, food security, prices, and sustainability indicators.

 

The database is updated regularly to ensure the availability of the most current data. Additionally, FAOSTAT offers tools for data visualisation and analysis, making it easier for users to interpret complex datasets and derive actionable insights.

NDC 3.0 Navigator
Tools & Applications

NDC 3.0 Navigator

The NDC 3.0 Navigator is an interactive tool that supports the development of NDCs to be submitted in 2025. It helps countries raise ambition and accelerate implementation of the next round of NDCs (NDCs 3.0).

The NDC 3.0 Navigator seeks to support and inspire country NDC teams, their experts, and partners, bringing together knowledge and support in a series of Routes to Ambitious and Implementable NDCs, which:

  • Provide examples of Opportunities to consider when developing NDCs 3.0
  • Highlight some of the Strategies that could enable each Opportunity
  • Identify the connecting Routes and Opportunities
  • Showcase country Case Studies
  • Provide links to further Resources

IPCC Emission Factor Database (EFDB)
Tools & Applications

IPCC Emission Factor Database (EFDB)

The IPCC Emission Factor Database (EFDB) is a library of emission factors (EFs) and parameters that can be used for estimation of national greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions/removals. The database contains default data from the IPCC Guidelines and data from other sources (e.g., peer-reviewed papers) with background information or technical references.

The EFDB is free to access and was developed based on the following needs:

  • Quality of GHG inventories depends on reliable EFs and activity data;
  • EFs that reflect national circumstances should be used in inventory compilation;
  • Developing of national EFs is costly, time consuming, and requires much expertise;
  • By sharing data/information EFs can be obtained cost-effectively; and
  • An easily accessible public EFDB would help improve the quality of national GHG inventories and facilitate data sharing by inventory compilers, experts, and scientists worldwide.

Inventory of GHG emissions from dairy cattle in Kenya 1995 – 2017

As part of an Agricultural GHG Inventory capability building programme funded by the New Zealand Government and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, the Kenyan State Department of Livestock, Ministry of Agriculture, livestock and Cooperatives (MoALFC) prepared this report on Kenya’s Dairy Industry using a Tier 2 approach.

Improving livestock GHG inventories in Africa. Which Model to use?

In this information brief, emission factors (EFs) are compared for 26 sub-categories of dairy cattle and 59 subcategories of beef (‘other’) cattle calculated using both the IPCC and South African models. The results show that there are systematic differences between the models and that each model has particular strengths and weaknesses.

Commissioning and managing agriculture inventory research projects
Webinars

Commissioning and managing agriculture inventory research projects

A recording of the third session of the Inventories and NDC (I&NDC) Network 2022 Webinar Series titled “Commissioning and managing agriculture inventory research projects” is now available to view.

It is crucial to effectively determine research priorities when resources for research are limited. Developing multilateral research projects and working with international research organisations facilitates collaboration across countries with similar production systems and agricultural circumstances.

In the first part of the session, we heard from experts on the process of designing research to meet inventory needs and ensuring new research results in inventory improvements. In the discussion, we considered multinational research prioritisation: timing, scaling and developing research projects with higher global relevance.
