Summary report, presentations and exercises from SIANI/FAO Workshop:
“Discover new Opportunities with the Ex-Ante Carbon Balance Tool”

7-8 December 2011, Stockholm
Main workshop objectives:

Presenting the tool and spreading its usage
Assessing the needs/demand related to CC mitigation for further development of the tool
Building partnerships

The Ex-Act tool:

The tool is a multi-functional software. Ex-Act has the capability to perform, amongst others, Carbon Footprint Analysis, illustrating which agricultural and forestry activities are CO2 emitters or Carbon sinks.
The results can be used to measure and manage environmental impact and for communication purposes.

  • 18. Swedish International Agriculture Network InitiativePro’s & Con’s of the toolPro’s Con’sEasy and cost effective to use to get a quickestimation of the mitigation potentialProvides guidance and support in the decision-making process for policy maker and projectdesignersIt is not applicable at MRV level, cannot be directlyused to calculate carbon creditsApplicable at a project, value chain and policy level Not correctly suited for value chain analysisTakes into account Geographics and timeRough level of uncertainty, especially in developingcountries due to lack of dataTakes into account LU and LUC and covers a largepart of the agricultural and forestry activitiesIPCC MethodologyUsed in financial and economic analysis
