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.
2: Developing A Baseline (Carbon Accounting)
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).
This webinar provides step-by-step guidance on tools to estimate the GHG benefits of trees, such as the Tree Carbon Calculator, Ecosmart Landscapes, Tree Asset Manager, and iTree Design.
This guidebook focuses on the design and implementation of the technical components of a national and subnational REDD+ program.
This presentation describes the forest emissions reference level (FREL) and forest reference level (FRL), as well their modalities, and provides a stepwise approach for developing them. FREL is generally used to estimate the amount of emission reduction from deforestation and forest degradation, as well as the amount of removals from sustainable forest management and enhancement of forest carbon stocks in a geographical area; FRL is used to quantify the amount of emissions from deforestation and forest degradation from a particular geographical area.
This e-learning course presents the methods for measuring and monitoring carbon in afforestation and reforestation projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
This presentation provides guidance on performing QA/QC of field-collected biomass data.
This presentation explains how to calculate carbon per hectare in each pool once field work has been completed.
