DescriptionThe Guide describes a number of cost-effective methods for measuring the organic carbon stored by forestry and agroforestry land uses over time. The guide discusses the importance of carbon monitoring as a way of offsetting greenhouse gas production, and proposes a system of cost- effective methods for monitoring carbon storage in three types of land use: forest plantations, managed natural forestry, and agroforestry. Chapter headings include measuring carbon pools, designing monitoring packages for specific land uses, tools, and reporting and verification. The report is 91 pages long, is in PDF format, and can be viewed using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
