Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from rice cultivation consist of methane gas from the anaerobic decomposition of organic matter in paddy fields. The FAOSTAT emissions database is computed following Tier 1 IPCC 2006 Guidelines for National GHG Inventories (http://www.ipcc-nggip.iges.or.jp/public/2006gl/vol4.html) and the IPCC 2000 Good Practice Guidance and Uncertainty Management in National GHG Inventories (http://www.ipcc-nggip.iges.or.jp/public/gp/english/). GHG emissions are provided by country, regions and special groups, with global coverage, relative to the period 1961-present (with annual updates) and with projections for 2030 and 2050, expressed both as Gg CH4 and Gg CO2eq. Implied emission factor for CH4 and activity data are also provided.
Historical versions of this dataset since 09 十二月 2014 are available.
