The field guide is intended to be used for classroom and field training as a supplement to the more detailed Protocols for the Measurement, Monitoring and Reporting of Structure, Biomass and Carbon Stocks in Mangrove Forests, a commonly used protocol for carbon accounting of mangroves and other forested wetlands developed by the USAID Sustainable Wetlands Adaptation and Mitigation Program (SWAMP) program
This presentation provides guidance on incorporating mangroves into a national GHG inventory following the IPCC guidelines for National GHG inventory.
This presentation introduces some of the methods available for assessing whether a wetland ecosystem is a net sink or a net source of GHGs.
This presentation introduces the approaches for using remote sensing to map wetland extent and dynamics—critical for mitigation efforts, MRV, IPCC reporting, and related efforts.
This e-book aims to help practitioners and researchers in collecting carbon stock data in a systematic way, according to internationally-accepted protocols for assessing carbon in mangrove forests.
This presentation describes monitoring, measuring, and the quantification of carbon stocks in tropical peat swamp forest. It covers the measurement of the biomass, structure and carbon pools in trees of tropical peat swamp forest, as well as the technical details of measurement for long-term monitoring.
This presentation focuses on carbon stock assessments for mangroves, covering methodologies to efficiently determine carbon emissions in both tall and low mangroves, as well as data collection strategies for calculating the carbon stocks, composition and structure of mangroves, and the basics of carbon dynamics.
This presentation explains how IPCC’s emission factors and activity data are developed and how countries use emission factors and activity data to estimate emissions. Guidance is provided for managed wetlands where the water table is artificially changed or wetlands are created through human activity (e.g., damming a river or reservoir).
