1 Introduction to SWAMP Toolbox Daniel Murdiyarso, Randy Kolka & Boone Kauffman

2  The purpose and scope of the toolbox?  Why tropical wetlands?  What is SWAMP?  The SWAMP Toolbox  The authors  Acknowledgements Contents Introduction. Slide 2 of 13

3 Purpose and scope of the Toolbox  The purpose of the Toolbox is to provide basic training materials for academia, policy- makers, and practitioners on issues related to climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies to be built around high-carbon reservoirs performed in wetland ecosystems  The scope of the Toolbox ranges from global, national through local perspectives. Although limited to climate change adaptation and mitigation it also discuss issues beyond carbon Introduction. Slide 3 of 13

4 Why Wetlands? SWAMP concentrates its work on wetlands for two reasons:  Wetlands are important in the global C cycles Very high C stocks, some of the highest on the planet Highest land cover change/deforestation rates in the tropics, hence, GHG emissions  Wetlands provide numerous Ecosystem Services Provisioning (food, fuel, fiber/wood) Supporting (primary production of terrestrial and aquatic forms of lives, nutrient accumulation) Regulating (climate, fresh water cycles, pollution control) Cultural (aesthetic, recreational, educational, spiritual) Introduction. Slide 4 of 13

5 What is SWAMP? Sustainable Wetlands Adaptation Mitigation Program – a partnership between the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), USDA Forest Services, and Oregon State University – supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) Introduction. Slide 5 of 13

6 What is SWAMP? SWAMP Goal  The overall goal of SWAMP is to provide policy makers with credible scientific information needed to make sound decisions regarding the role of tropical wetlands in climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies.  To achieve this goal the program has been implemented in a multi-disciplinary fashion to respond to a variety of national and international needs. Introduction. Slide 6 of 13

7 What is SWAMP? SWAMP Objectives 1.Quantify C stocks of representative tropical forested wetlands of the world 2.Quantify greenhouse gas emissions from both intact wetlands and sites undergone land cover change 3.Develop ecosystem modeling tools and remote sensing technology to scale up C measurements 4.Quantify the role of tropical wetland systems in climate change adaptation and mitigation 5.Build capacity of stakeholders through training and outreach activities in countries and relevant agencies Introduction.
