A2)  Selection of Cropland and Grassland Types and Management Systems

This action will consist on the identification of cropland and grassland types and their management systems that are relevant for the emissions and removals and are shared amongst as many Mediterranean Countries as possible, and which should, therefore, be included in future GHG Inventories. The process for arriving at the list, where MediNet will focus further effort, will consist of the following methodology:

  1. Identification of the cropland and grassland types and their management systems that are relevant for emissions and removals in each Mediterranean country – questionnaire to countries.

  2. The selection of the crops and grassland types and management systems that will be further analysed by subsequent Actions of MediNet will consider the following criteria:

  • Presence of the crops or grassland types and/or management system in the different Mediterranean countries

  • Similarity in management systems in different Mediterranean countries

  • Representativeness of the crop/management system in each of the countries
