SAMPLES addresses the dearth of reliable information about greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture in tropical countries. SAMPLES scientists work with developing countries to improve data on agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation potentials.
Our network of research sites stretch across the globe.

Greenhouse gas emission analyses from nine agricultural development projects reveal mitigation options
Analyses show that some agricultural practices contribute to improved food security and climate change mitigation; practices adopted at large scales could contribute significantly to food …read more
Whole-farm greenhouse gas emission balances and hotspots quantified in smallholder coffee-dairy systems in Central Kenya
Understanding how agricultural management practices impact productivity, greenhouse gas emissions, and carbon sequestration throughout the farm is critical to developing climate-smart agriculture options. In Central …read more
Increasing soil carbon would benefit food security and mitigate climate change, but more research is needed about how to sustainably manage the soil for carbon …read more
Climate-based suitability assessment for alternate wetting and drying water management in the Philippines: a novel approach for mapping methane mitigation potential in rice production
The ‘alternate wetting and drying’ (AWD) technology for rice is a water-saving technology with a high greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation potential. The Philippine government attempts …read more
Mitigating CH4 and N2O emissions from intensive rice production systems in northern Vietnam: Efficiency of drainage patterns in combination with rice residue incorporation
Greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation strategies are often constrained by rice farmers’ preferences, therefore an assessment of mitigation strategies taking farmers’ constraints into consideration, are important …read more
