$250$395

This course provides a rigorous training on the emission sources and estimation methodologies for the agriculture sector based on the internationally endorsed 2006 IPCC Guidelines. This course should be combined with the Institute’s 501 IPCC: Introduction to Cross-Cutting Issues.


Course Lessons:

  1. Introduction and overview
  2. Methane emissions from enteric fermentation
  3. CH4 and N2O emissions from livestock manure management
  4. Nitrous Oxide emissions from soils
  5. Methane emissions from rice cultivation and wetlands
  6. Non-Carbon stock change sources of CO2 from soils
  7. GHG emissions from biomass burning
  • The course includes quizzes and exercises to help you learn to apply key lessons.

Approximate number of working hours to complete: 40

Recommended Effort: 3-5 hours a day over the course of 5-8 days, depending on your goals.

Availability: This course is available online, 24/7

Languages: English

Certificate of Proficiency: Yes, available and requires the passing of an exam for an additional fee.

Who should attend:

This course is designed for anyone using, developing or working with greenhouse emissions and removal estimation and GHG inventories. It is recommended that you have some prior knowledge of technical and policy matters related to climate change (i.e., basic concepts of climate science, greenhouse gases, radiative forcing, etc.). But it is not necessary to have extensive prior experience in GHG inventories or GHG accounting. The course is especially useful for GHG program officers, environmental officers from government or the private sector, and energy industry professionals. You are not required to have prior experience on the GHG estimation methodologies. Upon completion, you will have expert level knowledge and skills necessary to use and/or prepare GHG emission estimates from energy-related emission sources.

Course Applicability:

A unique aspect of this series of courses is that it is applicable to all GHG measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) programs and accounting frameworks, including:

  • National
  • Sub-national (province, state, municipality)
  • Sectoral/program/policy (NAMAs, REDD+)
  • Entity (organization, company, or individual)
  • Product/Supply chain/Technology (life-cycle)
  • Facility/Installation
  • Project/Activity

The course was developed by the GHG Management Institute with the support of the USAID Low Emission Asian Development (LEAD) program.
