This manual—which is directed at individuals and organizations considering terrestrial sequestration projects and those considering legislation governing carbon emissions caps— addresses land types and management methods that can maximize carbon storage in vegetation and soil. It also covers the analytical techniques necessary to monitor, verify, and account for terrestrially stored carbon, which is required before the carbon can be traded. The manual also covers the status of greenhouse gas trading and the institutions involved. Finally, it discusses the results from terrestrial field trials for regional carbon sequestration partnerships.
