Carbon measuring system to help mitigate climate change
Date:5/18/2009

The $9.16m Carbon Benefits Project, which involves the Overseas Development Group at the University of East Anglia (UEA), hopes to encourage sustainable development schemes in developing countries that generate climate adaptation, mitigation and conservation benefits, as well as improve quality of life.

Over the next two years an innovative web-based system will be developed for measuring, monitoring and modelling the amount of carbon, and other greenhouse gas emissions, produced and stored in soil and vegetation by activities in a range of landscapes. Schemes involving agriculture, land use, forestry and rangeland improvement will be studied, using the huge carbon-storing potential provided by soil and vegetation and addressing issues of sustainable development for poverty alleviation.

The Carbon Benefits Project is being led and funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). As well as the Overseas Development Group, organisations involved include Colorado State University, the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF), Michigan State University and national partners in a number of countries.

By providing a way to document and compare contributions to climate change mitigation, and how appropriate land use and management can also improve livelihoods, it is hoped to make projects that address carbon impacts more attractive. The system will also provide a tool box of 'best practice' land management options and could produce estimates that are suitable for use in carbon trading markets. This could enable farmers, conservationists, landowners and local communities to be paid, for example by developed nations wanting to offset their own emissions, for the amount of pollution their activities remove from the atmosphere.

The Overseas Development Group, based in the School of International Development at UEA, is the only UK-based partner involved in the project. Its role will be to incorpo
