Overview

Project: The objective of this project is to help the Global Environment Facility (GEF) promote and prove carbon as a global environmental benefit in Sustainable Land Management (SLM) interventions by providing a cost effective, user-friendly, yet scientifically rigorous methodology for measuring Carbon and green House Gas (GHG) mitigation benefits in GEF projects dealing with natural resources in all climate zones and land use systems.The system will allow users to:

1. Estimate and model Carbon (C) stocks and flows and GHG emissions; and

2. To measure, monitor and manage carbon in GEF and similar projects across an inclusive range of land use systems.

    Hi,
    I was wondering with which method they calculate the carbon in living trees. And where can I get a list of the carbon content of each tropical species? Is it all calculated from the IPCC report values? Where can I find them?
    Sorry for asking so many questions, but I was reading a lot of papers (especially from LASCO and PULHIN), going backwards from paper to paper, but still missing the exact discription of methods.
    Thank you so much!
    Best regards,
    Friederik
