This tool provides ex-ante estimations of the impact of agriculture and forestry development projects on GHG emissions and carbon sequestration, indicating its effects on the carbon balance.The EX-ACT tool computes the carbon balance with and without the project. The difference represents the potential impact of the project in terms of mitigation, indicating the net amount of carbon sequestered (carbon sink) or emitted (carbon source) as a result of the project. EX-ACT could therefore help project designers select the project activities which have higher benefits both in economic and climate change mitigation terms (added value of the project).
