Measuring Climate Change Mitigation Potential for Ecosystem Restoration Projects

Measuring Climate Change Mitigation Potential for Ecosystem Restoration Projects

This document sets out the ethos, tools, and methods that can be used to provide a greenhouse gas (GHG) balance estimate for ecosystem restoration projects, using a diversity of landscape restoration projects funded by the Endangered Landscapes Programme (ELP) as case studies (covering a range of different habitats and restoration activities). The project aimed to…
