    This module presents a Case Study of a Carbon-Balance Appraisal for an investment programme. It is useful for people who wish to improve their skills on how to estimate the climate change mitigation potential of agricultural programmes/projects and how to integrate it into the economic analysis of projects. This case is part of a set of documents which intend to provide support project developers in the process of learning and applying the EX-Ante Carbon balance Tool (EX-ACT). More specifically, the EX-ACT application was tested on a FAO Programme in Madagascar and the results are demonstrated in this Case Study, which consists of a brief description of the project, guidelines for structuring project data and an appendix with project data.

    The Carbon Balance of the World Bank-financed Land Husbandry, Water Harvesting and Hillside Irrigation (LWH) Project of the Government of Rwanda: Application of the EX-Ante Carbon-balance tool (EX-ACT)

    Agriculture can play an important role in climate change mitigation while contributing to increased food security and reductions in rural poverty. The Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT) can estimate the mitigation potential of rural development projects generated from changes in farming systems and land use. The study presents and discusses the EX-ACT analysis performed on the World Bankfinanced Land Husbandry, Water Harvesting and Hillside Irrigation Project of the Government of Rwanda. Estim ates of the impact of project activities on greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration demonstrate that the implementation of the LWH project will provide additional environmental benefits by helping to mitigate climate change. Thus it reflects possible synergies between mitigation and rural development goals through a watershed approach.

    This module presents a case study of Carbon-Balance Appraisal for an investment project. It is useful for people who wish to improve their skills on how to estimate climate change mitigation potential of agricultural programmes/projects and to integrate it into the economic analysis of projects. It is part of a set of documents aimed at providing support to project developers in the process of learning and applying the EX-Ante Carbon balance Tool (EX-ACT). Specifically, this case study has been developed as a result of the application of EX-ACT to a FAO/WB Project in Brazil, which was also selected to test the software. The case study consists of: a brief description of the project and the EX-ACT analysis of the project with a discussion of the results.
