The Carbon Benefits Project

Colorado State University

This component of the Carbon Benefits Project is being led by Colorado State University

Modelling Component

The Carbon Benefits Project  is a Global Environment Facility (GEF) co-financed project which is being led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).  The project has developed a standardized system for GEF and other sustainable land management projects to measure, model, monitor and forecast carbon stock changes and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  The system is end-to-end (applicable at all stages of a project cycle) cost effective and user friendly.

The Carbon Benefits Project consists of two components; one  being led by Colorado State University  (CSU) and one by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) . This website gives information on activities being carried out by Colorado State University’s Component.

CSU’s component has three options for assessing the C benefits and greenhouse gas emissions of a project:

A simple assessment—suitable for a quick assessment at any stage, including proposals.

A detailed assessment—suitable for detailed reporting in projects with a reasonable focus on climate change mitigation.

A dynamic modeling option—for users with a scientific background who wish to model carbon stock changes in projects with a carbon focus.
