This analytical report provides the first comprehensive analysis of the challenges and opportunities that exist in agricultural production sectors in terms of quantification and qualification of greenhouse gas emissions, at global and regional level, covering the period 1990-2011. The data analysed is taken from the new FAOSTAT Emissions database, developed jointly by the Climate, Energy and Tenure Division and the Statistics Division, which is aimed at improving and disseminating agricultural statistical data for better quantification of greenhouse gas emissions and for the identification of the actions needed to reduce them.
