Making trees count: Measurement, reporting and verification of agroforestry-based carbon
Agroforestry contributes to farmers' livelihoods and the ability to adapt to our changing climate. Agroforestry also sequesters carbon, contributing to climate change mitigation, but how much? Over a third (59 of 147) of developing countries have proposed agroforestry as a climate change mitigation activity to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). While countries have the ambition to expand agroforestry, their capabilities to measure, report and verify (MRV) agroforestry actions and their carbon impacts are limited.
This webinar will:
- Assess countries' ambitions and capabilities to implement MRV in agroforestry
- Explore a user-friendly and cost-effective approach to identifying agroforestry used in Southeast Asia
- Summarize the revised Tier 1 factors on agroforestry carbon stock change factors and explain why they are critical to improved MRV and national reporting
- Investigate how inter-governmental dialogue on silvopastoral systems in Latin America is overcoming institutional barriers to agroforestry MRV
The webinar will conclude with a panel discussion based on questions from attendees.
