Mexico Livestock Project Protocol

The Mexico Livestock Project Protocol provides guidance to calculate, report, and verify GHG emission reductions associated with installing a manure biogas control system for livestock operations, such as dairy cattle and swine farms, in Mexico. These protocols were first adopted by the Reserve Board in July 2009.
