  • 1. The Carbon Benefits ProjectModelling, Measurement and MonitoringComponent ALed by Colorado State University

2. Component A who we are Colorado State University, USA Component lead, method and protocol development Principle investigator Keith Paustian Component co-ordinator Eleanor Milne (also affiliated with Leicester University, UK) Technical lead Mark Easter 3. Component A who we are. ISRIC World Soil Information Reference data on soil C stocks Indicative SOC change rates Niels Batjes, Prem Bindraban ODG University of East Anglia Provide social and economic input for protocol development and implementation Michael Stocking 4. Component A who we are CENA, University of So Paulo 1. Parameterization and testing using detailed data sets 2. Implementation of the protocol in the Environmental impact of agricultural expansion in SW Amazonia Carlos Cerri 5. Component A who we are Existing GEF project partners Identifying and meeting GEF project needs in proving Global Carbon Benefits KARI Patrick Gicheru & Peter Kamoni CMNN/NNJC Emmanuel Oladipo GEF PRC Ningxia IEM Ma Minxia & Li Hongsong GEF PRC Gansu Project - Wang Yaolin 6. Component A outcomes. A cost-effective methodology for proving carbon benefits in GEF and other SLM projects, comprising a uniform protocol and accompanying web portal GEF SLM projects measuring, monitoring, projecting and reporting carbon benefits in a standardized way 7. Component A builds on Project and national scale C inventory tools developed at CSU GHG inventory assessment tools for entire Agriculture Forestry and LU sector Tools providing Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 assessmentsCOMET-VRGEFSOCALU COMET-FARM 8. Project sub-components A1 Methodology development A2 Test cases and best practice design A3 Capacity building and knowledge management A4 Management, M&E and dissemination 9. A1 Methodology development Do SLM interventions affect C stocks and GHG emissions? Measurement, modelling and verification for baseline scenario and a project scenarios Forecasting Monitoring and verification Long term projections 10. The protocol will be.. Web accessible Guide the user through appropriate - model-based - remote sensing - ground-based measurement approaches - and economic assessment 11. System overviewOther models 12. Input all general information about the project Also GIS capability to use global or national data sets for default info Add project specific data Add project boundaries Enable project specific polygons (climate x soil x land cover)Other models Add new GIS layers over time 13. Provide project relevant guidance through decision trees e.g. Which C pools and GHG fluxes need to be accounted for Sinks and sources to be accounted for Links to useful resources and organisations (CDM if appropriate) Could link to component Bs toolbox of agro-forest best practice Other models 14. Provides guidance in developing a measurement program 1.Help select ground based measurement methods 2.Produce sample designs, field and lab methods and analysis 3.How to store data Other models 15. Stores point based ground data - Maintains time series measurements -Could contain database libraries to convert spectral dataAllows users to download RS data and input their own RS data for above ground biomass estimatesOther modelsFeeds into the calculation module 16. Specify land management activities, in relation to info from project description module (based on ALU) Other models 17. Options for calculating C stocks and GHG emissions Depending on level of detail required and stage of the project Based on ALU, COMET and GEFSOCOther models 18. What will the system build on?Modelling tools for the assessment of above andbelow ground C stocks developed for GEF andother funding agencies:- ALU www.nrel.colostate.edu/projects/ghgtool The GEFSOC Modelling Systemwww.nrel.colostate.edu/projects/GEFSOC-UKCOMET-VR www.cometvr.colostate.edu 19. Costs, labour allocation, price, incomeOther models 20. Generates reports on C sequestration and GHG emissions for sinks and sources in baseline and project scenariosOther models 21. A2 Test cases and best practice designIdentifying and meeting GEF and other SLM projectneeds in proving GCB Existing OP12 & OP15 GEF projects in 4 countries- China, Niger/Nigeria trans boundary area and Kenya Plus one non-GEF project in Brazil Different land cover, land use, SLM interventions, climates etc. All have mentioned GCB in their proposals Are at different stages of implementation Develop, test, implement the protocol 22. A2 Test cases and best practice design 23. A2 Test cases and best practice design Identifying and meeting GEF and other SLM project needs in proving GCBAdditional capacity assessment to meet full GEF portfolio requirements - Assessment of other needs (beyond those identified in the case studies) - Assessment of the steps necessary to make the protocol compatible with the carbon markets 24. A2 Test cases and best practice designParameterization and testing using detailed data sets Nova Vida Ranch: Detailed datasets long-term project in the Brazilian Amazon, estimates of above- and below- ground C, GHG flux under varying natural resource interventions and SOC measurements. ISRIC existing soil C data sets over a wide range of climate, terrain, soils 25. A3 Capacity building and knowledge management Phase 1 work with local communities and people involved in the partner SLM projects in 5 countries Measurement and monitoring capacity built Capacity on reporting C and GHG benefits built Capacity on implementing the protocol built Phase 2 capacity building in wider GEF networks All of GEF PRC All areas in NN trans boundary project LADA and other GEF networks 26.
