1 Coping with scarcity of data, knowledge and capacity carbon in developing country forests Dieter Schoene, FAO, Rome

2 reporting on carbon National Forest Resource Assessments Global Forest Resource Assessment Assessment National Communication LULUCF forest carbon assessment secondary info

3 GPG: calculating biomass change MethodFormula(simplified) default ΔB = A*(I v – L) * BEF stock change ΔB = (V 2 – V 1 ) * BEF

4 GPG: tiers in carbon change assessment Tier Data requirement situation 1 simple default values sparse national data; forest not key category 2 some country-specifc activity data and emission factors key category; data available or obtainable 3 detailed country specific activity data and emission factors key category; detailed data or models available

5 GPG: default method tier 1: no volume incrementtier 1: no volume increment tier 2, 3: volume incrementtier 2, 3: volume increment

6 GPG: stock change method Tier 2: Tier 3:
