Verified Carbon Standard: Methodology for the Adoption of Sustainable Grasslands through Adjustment of Fire and Grazing

Sadie S

Verified Carbon Standard approved methodology was developed by Soils for the Future to guide quantification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions and removals from projects that introduce sustainable adjustment of the density of grazing animals and the frequency of prescribed fires into an uncultivated grassland landscape. The methodology demonstrates how to determine additional carbon offsets from soil sequestration and/or reduction in methane emissions from changing the frequency of fires, the density of grazing animals, and/or introducing new grassland species as forage for grazing animals or in order to restore degraded soils.
