ready FAOSTAT Emissions Agriculture and Land Use

Abbreviation:FAOSTAT Emissions

General Information
Agriculture and Land Use provide a complete picture of the GHG emissions from agriculture and associated land use, estimated by FAO. These emissions consist of non-CO2 gases, namely methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), associated with crop and livestock production and associated management activities (Agriculture) and CO2 emissions and removals from carbon stock change on cropland, grassland and forest land, including from biomass fires and peatland degradation (drainage an fires). Data are computed at Tier 1 following the IPCC Guidelines for National GHG Inventories and are available by country with global coverage, with annual updates. Emission estimates are available for the period 1961–2017, and include projection for 2030 and 2050 (Agriculture); and for 1990-2017 for land use. Data for “Cultivation of organic soils” and “Burning–savanna” begin in 1990. Annual updates are provided each year up to year minus two.
