Developing Protocols for Carbon Credits
Develop a certified protocol providing for carbon and other ecosystem service “credits” to be quantified and transacted as a potential long-term source of revenue supporting future meadow restoration and
- Implemented research and sampling design to quantify greenhouse gases sequestration in coordination with project partners across 18 meadows throughout the Sierra and southern Cascades;
- Initiated carbon protocol verification process and procedures;
- Researched greenhouse gas and ecosystem services credit market requirements.
What We Will Achieve in 2016-17
- Continue greenhouse gas data collection and analysis pre and post meadow restoration.
