2 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO This module is part of a set of power points that describes how works the EX- ACT tool. EX-ACT (Ex-Ante Carbon-balance tool) is a tool developed by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It is aimed at providing estimations of the mitigation impact of agriculture and forestry development projects, estimating net carbon balance from Green House Gas (GHG) emissions and carbon sequestration. It is a land based accounting system associated with the adoption of alternative land management options (See the linked flyer of the EX-ACT tool). The tool is developed with a modular approach, each module going to be described in such a power point. Acknowledgement

3 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO After reading this module, you should: understand how the other investments module of EX-ACT works; know which data are required to run the other investments module; be able to fill in the other investments module by yourself. Objectives

4 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Main view of EX-ACT User needs to click here

5 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Complete view of the Other investments module

6 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Complete view of the Other investments module Simplest approach by default (Tier-1) Approach with more detailed information (Tier-2) 2 possible approaches:

7 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO All other information corresponds to default values… …or intermediary calculations Complete view of the Other investments module Simplest approach by default (Tier-1) Approach with more detailed information (Tier-2)

8 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Explanations step by step... 1

9 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...1/4 Electricity consumption The user selects the country of origin of electricity The user can change the values of corresponding t CO 2 /MWh and also the expected losses

10 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...1/4 Electricity consumption Two options possible:... or give an annual consumption for the present time, the future without project and the future with project The user can give the global consumption of electricity for whole the duration of the project in the expected situation without project and with project

11 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...1/4 Electricity consumption The user can choose between three dynamic of consumption (linear by default, exponential, immediate)

12 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Explanations step by step... 2

13 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...2/4 Fuel consumption As previously, the user has two options Informs the total consumption for the total duration of the project or a mean annual consumption

14 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...2/4 Fuel consumption Then he can select between three dynamic of consumption (linear by default, exponential, immediate) or its own ad hoc coefficients Within the second option, the user can choose to use the default coefficients

15 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Explanations step by step... 3

16 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...3/4 Installation of irrigation systems The user informs the surface of new irrigation system that will be installed in the future without and with project The user can choose the type of irrigation system in the following list:

17 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Explanations step by step... 4

18 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Step by step...4/4 Building of infrastructure The user can choose the type of irrigation system in the following list: Then he informs the surface of the infrastructure in the expected future without and with project Here he gets the carbon balance for the building of infrastructure And here for the investment module

19 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO How filling it...You know everything about the Other investments module... …See the other modules!

20 On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO Glossary On-line resource materials for policy making Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool Global warming potential (GWP) is a measure of how much a given mass of greenhouse gas is estimated to contribute to global warming. It is a relative scale which compares the gas in question to that of the same mass of carbon dioxide (whose GWP is by definition 1) Emission factor: normalized coefficient that allows for calculating the emission fluxes of GHG Carbon sink: system that absorb naturally a part of the CO 2 emitted in the atmosphere and store carbon during a more or less long term Carbon balance: should be considered, for a specific project (or scenario of action) in comparison with a reference, as the net balance of all GHG emissions expressed in CO 2 equivalent (sources and sinks) with the atmosphere interface and the net change in C stocks (biomass, soil…).
