E-learning Course on National Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory for Agriculture

This free online course provides knowledge to build a sustainable national GHG inventory and to assess emissions from the agriculture sectors. This online course offers not only an overview of the processes behind the production of GHG emissions from agriculture-related activities, but also comprehensive guidance for calculating GHG emissions using the IPCC default method and emissions factors (Tier 1).

This course is part of the e-learning series "Building a sustainable national greenhouse gas inventory for Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use" developed by FAO through the Mitigation of Climate Change in Agriculture (MICCA) Programme.

This course is particularly useful for staff in national agencies to strengthen institutional and technical capacities. The training material also help them to meet the requirements of the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) of the Paris Agreement, built to ensure trust and confidence in countries’ contributions.

Among the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF), countries have committed to submitting on a regular basis a national GHG inventory report to provide information on the progress made in implementing their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).

The Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) represents a unique challenge in developing countries, due to significant difficulties in collecting information and in compiling and regularly updating the essential national statistics.

Through the preparation of the GHG inventory, the course offers a helping hand in that endeavour, guiding the learner. It is also useful for anybody wishing to improve her or his knowledge on IPCC methodologies and UNFCCC reporting processes.

The course consists of 7 lessons, organized in two units, for a total of about 7 hours of self-paced instruction. Each lesson is designed to achieve a specific set of learning objectives, using interactive step-by-step instructions and exercises and questions to help retention and increase learning.
