Land use emissions hotspots

The land use (i.e. AFOLU) sector contributes roughly a quarter of the net anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions mainly from deforestation, fire, wood harvesting, and agricultural emissions including croplands, paddy rice, and livestock. In this theme, we present spatial data on land use emissions to fill key knowledge gaps, identify emission hotspots and support mitigation actions.

AFOLU emissions

Annual mean emissions for 2000–2005 of the AFOLU sector, which combine CO2, CH4 and N2O from deforestation, fire, wood harvesting, livestock (enteric fermentation, manure management), paddy rice, and cropland soils.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions

Annual mean carbon dioxide emissions (expressed in CO2e) for 2000–2005 from the forest sector and soil organic content loss from soils.
