Tools: Terrestrial Carbon Assessment

  • Winrock Standard Operating Procedures for Terrestrial Carbon Measurement
    The active and important role vegetation and soil play in the global carbon cycle and global climate change is now internationally recognized. Vegetation and soil can act as both a net source and a net sink of greenhouse gas (GHG), depending on how the land is managed. Alterations in land use management techniques that result in changes to net GHG emissions are now a significant component to the... read more →
  • Participatory Carbon Monitoring: Operational Guidance for National REDD+ Carbon Accounting
    This operational guidance document describes the potential benefits and limitations of participatory carbon monitoring (PCM), as well as the roles and key functions of stakeholder groups in PCM for national REDD+ carbon accounting.
