Universitäre Weiterbildung: "Carbon Forestry" startet am 30. Jan. 2017

— abgelegt unter:


The Institute of Forest Sciences at University of Freiburg offers in cooperation with UNIQUE Forestry, Forest Finest, and the Gold Standard Foundation a 3-week course in Carbon Forestry in January/February 2017.

The sequestration of carbon by forests and soils is one of the most important terrestrial ecosystem services. Professionals are needed with competencies in project development for land-use based mitigation and with knowledge of related climate policy instruments at national and international levels. Participants of this module will learn the basics to develop and evaluate such greenhouse mitigation projects. Project design documents of different types of land-use based carbon projects (REDD+, A/R, agroforestry & soils) will be analyzed and validated in groups with presentations, plenum discussions and guest lectures. Using a local case study, participants will quantify C pools in afforested plantations in the field and it the lab. Furthermore, this module includes excursions and trips to organizations charged with carbon forestry.

Upon successful completion of this 3-week course, participants will be able to:

  • Analyze and design carbon forestry and related land use project documents
  • Determine emission reduction effects and the amount of carbon credits of projects, using appropriate methods and tools
  • Plan and undertake assessments of carbon pools and fluxes to monitor forestry and other land-use carbon projects
  • Apply safeguards to reduce risks in such projects
  • Critically evaluate climate change policies, including development perspectives of carbon forestry and emission reduction markets
  • Plan financing mechanisms for forestry C projects
  • Work as experts for Gold Standard A/R projects
  • Become an accredited individual auditor for A/R Smallholder & Microscale projects
