    ABC-Map 2023
    Also available in:

    ABC-Map was designed with the specific objective of holistically assessing the environmental impacts of national policies, plans and investments in the agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU) sector through Google Earth-based satellite imagery. ABC-Map helps to develop synergies and trade-offs between climate, biodiversity and land restoration actions. The adaptation section helps to understand exposure to climate change risks and to assess climate change over time in a given area. The biodiversity section covers a series of indicators that are intended to complement each other and provide a more comprehensive view of pressures and impacts on biodiversity. The carbon section aims to account for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the AFOLU sector and work towards their reduction. The overall objective of this flyer is to inform readers (i) what ABC-Map is, (ii) it's structure, and (iii) ABC-Map's partners.

    ABC-Map a été conçu dans le but spécifique d'évaluer de manière holistique les impacts environnementaux des politiques, plans et investissements nationaux dans le secteur de l'agriculture, de la sylviculture et des autres utilisations des terres (AFOLU) à l'aide d'images satellite basées sur Google Earth. ABC-Map aide à développer des synergies et faire des arbitrages entre les actions climatiques, la biodiversité et les actions de restauration des terres.   La section sur l'adaptation permet de comprendre l'exposition aux risques liés au changement climatique et d'évaluer le changement climatique au fil du temps dans une zone donnée. La section sur la biodiversité couvre une série d'indicateurs destinés à se compléter mutuellement et à fournir une vision plus complète des pressions et des impacts sur la biodiversité. La section sur le carbone vise à rendre compte des émissions de gaz à effet de serre (GES) dans le secteur des AFOLU et à œuvrer en faveur de leur réduction. L'objectif global de ce dépliant est d'informer les lecteurs (i) sur ce qu'est ABC-Map, (ii) sur sa structure, et (iii) sur les partenaires d'ABC-Map.

    EX-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT) 2017
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    EX-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT) is a tool developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It is aimed at providing ex-ante estimates of the mitigation impact of agriculture, forestry and fishery development projects, estimating net Carbon (C) balance from greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and C sequestration. EX-ACT is a land-based accounting system, measuring C stocks, stock changes per unit of land, and CH4 and N2O emissions expressed in t CO2-e per hectare an d year. The main output of the tool is an estimation of the C-balance that is associated with adoption of alternative land management options, as compared to a ‘business as usual’ scenario. EX-ACT has been developed using primarily the IPCC 2006 Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (IPCC 2006), complemented by other existing methodologies and reviews of default coefficients where available. Default values for mitigation options in the agriculture sector are mostly from the 4th Asse ssment Report of IPCC chapter 8, Smith et al.2007. Default values for wetlands (inland and coastal) are from the 2013 supplement to the IPCC 2006 (IPCC 2014). Thus, EX-ACT allows for the C–balance appraisal of new investment programmes by ensuring an appropriate method available for donors and planning officers, project designers and decision makers within agriculture, forestry and fisheries sectors in developing countries. The tool can also help to identify the mitigation impacts of various inv estment project options, and thus provide an additional criterion for consideration in project selection. These technical guidelines for using EX-ACT aim at providing the user with the details of procedures and numbers used to perform calculation of C balance.
