Abstract: This document analyses potential greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation measures in the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Uses (AFOLU) sector, looking at their reportability with the IPCC methods. The main conclusions that can be drawn from this analysis are: • Mitigation strategies target either ‘observation’ or ‘parameter’ • Data changes usually have an effect on more than one emission category • All mitigation measures impact farmer’s income • Mitigation measures can be grouped in mitigation mechanism groups • Measures using the mitigation strategy ‘observation’ are relatively straight-forward to be traced in GHG inventories, some with additional data collection required • Measures using the mitigation strategy ‘parameter’ often require research programs to develop (national) differentiated emission factors • Assessing mitigation measures at the farm level is easier at the level of mitigation mechanism groups than at the level of individual mitigation measures • A modular GHG calculator tool would provide highest flexibility for farm level GHG monitoring
