World Wildlife Fund announced on April 1 a partnership with Michigan State University, the World Agroforestry Center, and the Center of International Forestry Research to develop an innovative system for measuring, monitoring, and managing carbon in a diverse range of landscapes.
The partnership, part of the Global Environment Facility and United Nations Environment Programs Carbon Benefits Project, will help enable some of the worlds poorest people in the most vulnerable places to obtain the benefits of carbon sequestration.
The Carbon Benefits Project (CBP) is an innovative solution to a persistent problem: how to measure terrestrial carbon, particularly on complex landscapes. The CBP provides a cost-effective system that integrates the latest remote sensing technology and analysis, ground-based measurement, and rigorous statistical analysis.
