SUMMERSCHOOL 20-26 June 2010 - Greenhouse gas emissions from rural activities

Course introduction
To mitigate climate change, demanding greenhouse gas emission reduction targets are being negotiated.
Meeting these targets requires putting to work a broad and integrated range of reduction options, including those related to land use. Mitigation efforts in forestry, agriculture and land management need quantification against a large natural background variability. To merit the
reduction achievements by motivated stakeholders in these sectors and to prevent leakage to less committed players requires a form of full carbon accounting.

Course aim
Full carbon accounting is a demanding task, in which scientific complexity and manageable, transparent accounting systems have difficulty to meet. The question we try answer in this course is: can we bring these together?
