We adapt and generalize results of Loganathan on the cohomology of inverse semigroups to the cohomology of ordered groupoids. We then derive a five-term exact sequence in cohomology from an extension of ordered groupoids, and show that this sequence leads to a classification of extensions by a second cohomology group. Our methods use structural ideas in cohomology as far as possible, rather than computation with cocycles.
