Understanding Quality in Forest Carbon Projects

Location: Online
Date: 09 Jun 2022
Time: 16:00

Join us for a camp-fireside chat with Climate Focus and Arbor Day Foundation to understand how leading forest carbon experts define quality in this space. We will explore the topics of baselines, buffer pools, permanence, harvesting, and nesting, and of course what each topic has to do with your carbon offsetting goals.

Planting trees and protecting rainforests are the iconic projects for climate action. While they may be the easiest projects to conceptualise, when it comes to emissions accounting, forest carbon projects can be some of the most complex in the voluntary carbon market (VCM). Whether it is accounting for survival rates in afforestation and reforestation projects, harvesting rates and timber use in improved forest management projects, or baseline deforestation rates in forest conservation projects, there is more to see the longer you look at the topic of forest carbon.

The hour webinar will be moderated by Alterra Hetzel, Senior Vice President of Client Solutions at Climate Impact Partners. Alterra will be joined by:
• Charlotte Streck, PhD, Co-founder and Lead Consultant at Climate Focus
• Jeremy Manion, Director of Forestry Carbon Markets at Arbor Day Foundation

This webinar was part of a series on quality in the voluntary carbon market from Climate Impact Partners, please contact us for the recording.
