Natural Climate Solutions: Protocol and Guidance

This document sets out the ethos, tools, and methods used to estimate greenhouse gas balances for ELP restoration projects. It provides guidance on using two greenhouse gas assessment tools to estimate the climate change mitigation benefit of landscape-scale restoration projects and the restoration activities they include.

Natural Climate Solutions Full Report

This report describes the results of an ELP-funded Advancing and Applying Knowledge project that estimated the climate change mitigation potential of ELP projects. By comparing observed or projected project outcomes against a baseline ‘business-as-usual’ scenario, this report  demonstrates the emissions reduction and carbon sequestration benefits that can be delivered by biodiversity-focused restoration.
