Data of global agricultural GHG emissions issued by FAO (2013) shows (Figure) that the main contributors of global agricultural GHG are the agriculture of China (14 percent), India (13 percent), Brazil (9 percent), the European Union (8 percent) and the US (8 percent). The five countries contribute 52 percent of total agricultural GHG emissions.

The GHG emissions contributed by the Indonesian agricultural sector is relatively small, only 3 percent. Therefore, an accusation that the Indonesian agricultural sector is the biggest global agricultural GHG contributor is not true and not supported by existing data.

Kontribusi emisi GHG dari sektor pertanian Indonesia relatif kecil yakni hanya 3 persen. Dengan demikian tuduhan bahwa sektor pertanian Indonesia penyumbang terbesar GHG pertanian global adalah tidak benar dan tidak didukung oleh data yang ada.
