New CDM Guide: Measuring Forest Carbon Stocks

A new field manual for estimating carbon stocks in forest projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) has just been released. Forests store carbon, and thus reduce the carbon dioxide emissions that drive climate change. Under the CDM, projects are rewarded with a saleable certified emission reduction credit for each tonne of carbon dioxide they reduce or avoid. Afforestation and reforestation projects convert non-forested land to forested land through...
