Ques : What is Carbon Accounting ?

, , No Comments

Carbon accounting is the practice of making scientifically robust and verifiable measurements of GHG emissions. Forests play an important role in the global carbon balance. Accounting for the carbon within forest ecosystems and changes in carbon stocks resulting from human activities is a necessary step towards the better representation of forests in climate change policy at regional, national and global scales. The main objective of carbon accounting is to identify the carbon-density of areas, providing information for low carbon impact land use planning. It prepares territories for accounting and reporting of emissions from the forestry sector. It allows comparison of the climate change impact of the forestry sector relative to other sectors, as well as allowing comparison between territories. Finally, it enables trade of project emission reductions on carbon markets and for emission reductions to be included in policy targets.
