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.

Guidance for Standardized GHG Assessment of Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) Projects
New guidance document by FAO’s EX-ACT team is tailored to the needs of finance institutions, multilateral and bilateral donors and their implementing agencies, international organizations and …read more
Genetic mitigation strategies to tackle agricultural GHG emissions: The case for biological nitrification inhibition technology
Accelerated soil-nitrifier activity and rapid nitrification are the cause of declining nitrogen-use efficiency (NUE) and enhanced nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from farming. Biological nitrification inhibition …read more
Monitoring, reporting and verification of greenhouse gas emissions from livestock: current practices and opportunities for improvement
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture now exceed emissions from land use, land use change and forestry, including deforestation, and are growing at a rate …read more
