Find emission data, emission factors, and scenarios specific to mitigating agricultural emissions below.

Emissions Data

Climate Analysis Indicators Tool (CAIT)

The Climate Analysis Indicators Tool (CAIT) provides GHG emissions data from multiple economic sectors, including agriculture, for 186 countries. CAIT allows analysis of historical and projected future emissions. CAIT estimates rely on data provided by FAO-Stat. CAIT is in the process to migrate to Climate Watch platform, which includes new features for accessing and visualizing emissions data and national and global progress on climate change commitments.

Emissions Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR)

The Emissions Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR) is an independent database of historical and present day anthropogenic GHG emissions and other air pollutants at global level, separated by country and spatial grid.

Greenhouse Gas Emission and Removal Estimating System (SEEG)

The Greenhouse Gas Emission and Removal Estimating System (SEEG) is an initiative of the Climate Observatory that includes the production of annual estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Brazil, India and Peru. The SEEG platform is developed based on national inventories and census following the 2006 IPCC guidelines.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions From Croplands

These three datasets contain circa 2000 estimates of total emissions from croplands, per kilocalorie emissions from croplands, and per food kilocalorie emissions from cropland. The datasets are in high spatial detail and are aggregated from the original crop-specific output. It finds that total GHG emissions are largely unrelated to production intensity, therefore mitigation policies should be aimed at areas with both high GHG emissions and intensities.

World Programme for the Census of Agriculture

The World Programme for the Census of Agriculture supports countries in conducting their national agricultural censuses and promotes a standard methodology. Data collected provides a valuable snapshot of the agriculture sector and can help a country make policy decisions and assess the impact of agriculture on the environment.


Agriculture’s prominence in the INDCs: Analysis of agriculture in countries’ climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies

This dataset is the result of a review of countries' 2015 and 2016 commitments to climate change mitigation and adaptation. It found that they show a strong interest in agriculture. The dataset includes how agriculture is included in the mitigation targets and adaptation priorities of the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) of 189 countries. It also includes a series of maps based on this data and three info notes providing analysis of the review. The aim of this analysis and data is to inform national planning of mitigation and adaptation strategies.

National Communication Submissions – Annex I

Countries (parties) included in Annex I to the Convention (Annex I Parties) including those that are also Parties to the Kyoto Protocol are obligated to submit their National Communications to the secretariat every four years. This UNFCCC is where the 7th NCs, submitted in 2018 are housed.

National Communication submissions from Non-Annex I Parties

Non-Annex I Parties are required to submit their first NC within three years of entering the Convention, and then every four years. This UNFCCC page houses all non-Annex I country submissions.

UNFCCC Nationally Determined Contribution Registry

This website houses all of the nationally determined contributions to the Paris Agreement submitted by country Parties. Most of the NDCs are in English, French, Spanish, Arabic or Russian. The documents are openly available.
