2021 Forest & Trees Carbon Accounting Cohort Training
ICLEI USA’s 2021 Forests & Trees Carbon Accounting Cohort Training Session is a 6-month structured technical assistance program to guide communities in the application of the Forestry Protocol, an appendix to the U.S. Community Protocol for GHG Emission Inventories. Kicking off July 2021, ICLEI USA staff will assist up to 10 communities in the process of assessing the emissions and removals of carbon through forestry and urban tree management. At the conclusion of the cohort session, participating communities will have a key element of the Agriculture, Forestry, and Land Use (AFOLU) sector of their community-wide GHG inventory. Applicants should have access to spatial data for forested lands and/or a tree inventory for urban trees. If that data is not available, applicants will be able to use the LEARN tool to gather approximate emissions and removals.
