This website describes the SHAMBA TOOL, designed to model a baseline scenario and an intervention scenario consisting of activities that can be described as Climate Smart Agricultural practices (CSA) including, conservation agriculture, agroforestry and other tree planting.
This video shows the structure, content and functionalities of the tool and explains how to use it. GLEAM-i can be used by project planners, producers, civil society organizations and academia to calculate emissions from the livestock sector using Tier 2 methods and to generate intervention scenarios.
This video briefly explains the context of climate change and livestock production, as well as how FAO supports countries in developing sustainable livestock policies. The author also introduces the role of GLEAM in that strategy, highlighting the added value of the publicly available version: GLEAM-interactive.
This presentation provides guidance on using the GLEAM model to simulate the environmental impacts of the livestock sector, considering the bio-physical processes and activities along livestock production chains under a life cycle assessment approach.
This website describes the CCAFS Mitigation Options Tool (CCAFS-MOT) for estimating GHG emissions from multiple crop and livestock management practices in different geographic regions, and provides policy-makers across the globe access to reliable information needed to make science-informed decisions about emissions reductions from agriculture. The website provides a link for downloading the Excel-based tool.
The CCAFS Mitigation Option Tool (CCAFS-MOT) estimates greenhouse gas emissions from various crops (e.g. barley, maize, sugar cane), crop groups (e.g. vegetables, legumes) and livestock production in different regions.
This video provides guidance on how to use the AFOLU Carbon Calculator Grazing Management Tool to estimate the carbon impacts of project activities that improve the management of grazing lands and grazing practices (e.g., through mitigating fertilizer usage, the rewetting of organic soil, and livestock enteric fermentation).
This video provides guidance on how to use the AFOLU Carbon Calculator Cropland Management Tool to estimate the carbon impacts of activities that alter the management of croplands to reduce GHG emissions.
