Framework Code for Good Agricultural Practice for Reducing Ammonia Emissions

Published: April 2015

The Framework Code takes account of the latest scientific knowledge and experience in ammonia abatement, as described in the recent update of the guidance document on preventing and abating ammonia emissions from agricultural sources (ECE/EB.AIR/120). Its purpose is to provide the Convention’s Parties with easily understandable information on the good practices that are necessary to reduce ammonia emissions from agricultural sources.

The document is for guidance only, and it is not a prescriptive set of measures for full adoption; alternative and novel measures and technologies can be considered by countries if evidence can be provided. The Ammonia Framework Code is designed to support Parties in establishing or updating their national advisory codes of good agricultural practice to control ammonia emissions, as required by annex IX to the 1999 Protocol to Abate Acidification, Eutrophication and Ground-level Ozone, and its 2012 amendment.
