Objetivo

Carbo-Invent will identify/develop/test methods for assessing forest carbon (C) stock changes at national and EU levels, for the purpose of reporting under the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol (KP), using multi-source inventory methods: biomass expansion factors, soil C assessments combined with forest inventories; remote sensing techniques to enhance accuracy and reduce cost. This will aid the design of "national systems" as called for in the KP. Methods/integration techniques will be applied in boreal, continental, oceanic, alpine, Mediterranean test sites. Up scaling to national level will be tested for both "full C accounting" and selective accounting under the KP. Separate national and EU stock-change estimates will result from integrating multi-source data with a European Forest Resource Database. C monitoring/verification procedures will be suggested to translate KP decisions into inventorying requirements at national/project levels.
