Verified Carbon Standard: Soil Carbon Quantification Methodology

Sadie S

Verified Carbon Standard approved methodology for quantifying and monitoring changes in soil carbon and emissions from soils as well as from other greenhouse gas sources affected by Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) projects. This methodology was developed by The Earth Partners. It is applicable to agricultural land management projects, such as those including the following management practice changes:

  • agricultural practices,
  • grassland and rangeland restorations,
  • soil carbon protection and accrual benefits from reductions in erosion,
  • grassland protection projects and treatments that improve the diversity and productivity of grassland and savanna plant communities.
