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.
