Feliciano Tool for geographic optimization mitigation options Nov 12 2014

  1. 1. CCAFS – MOT: A decision support tool for geographic op;misa;on of agricultural mi;ga;on op;ons (ongoing work) Dali Nayak, Jon Hillier, Diana Feliciano & Sylvia VeJer University of Aberdeen Rome 12.10.2014
  2. 2. Low emissions agriculture: Suppor3ng agricultural development that GHG emissions or sequesters carbon.
  3. 3. What it does -­‐ Es3mate GHG emissions for different land use systems according to management types; -­‐ Rank the most effec3ve mi3ga3on op3ons; -­‐ Es3mate the mi3ga3on poten3al of different op3ons. What it does not do -­‐ Es3mate life cycle assessment of GHG emissions; -­‐ Scale emissions up to total area, total livestock; -­‐ Es3mate GHG emissions in different microclimates; -­‐ ….
  4. 4. Main objec3ve of CCAFS-­‐MOT -­‐ User friendly -­‐ LiJle ;me required -­‐ It widely used -­‐ Quick user vs expert user -­‐ General overview of key emission sources -­‐ Tool to help providing advice for policy makers -­‐ Accommodates regional differences
  5. 5. GHG emissions: main input variables are flexible • Region, climate, soil characteris;cs • Ecosystem: upland (34 crops + other), rice, grassland • Current management prac;ces: user can choose which prac3ces they are using (e.g. fer3liser applica3on rate, 3llage prac3ces).

  10. 10. How does it look like?
  11. 11. Ques;ons/feedback • Are you familiar with the mi3ga3on op3ons suggested? • Would you like to see more informa3on than what is currently presented? What is missing? • What is the difference from other tools? • Other sugges3ons…
