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.
This document provides guidance for estimating activity data for deforestation (based on the extent of deforestation activities on the ground, using previously developed spatially explicit datasets) in order to support a terrestrial carbon monitoring system for REDD+.
This technical guidance describes the steps necessary to create emission factors for deforestation using existing carbon stock data to support a national or subnational forest monitoring system for REDD+.
This guidance covers the first step in developing a reference level for deforestation which can then be used to estimate historical emissions and removals from other REDD+ activities (see http://www.leafasia.org/library for additional technical guidance).
This presentation provides step-by-step methods for measuring and monitoring forest carbon pools in the field.
