AbstractThe Alternatives to Slash and Burn Program hosted a small workshop on carbon offsets strategies for increasing and conserving carbon storage in the small-holder agriculture sector in the humid tropics (See Annex 1 for list of participants). The ASB workshop followed at larger workshop hosted by CIFOR on ‘Developing a Shared Research Agenda for LULUCF (Land- Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry) and CDM (Clean Development Mechanism); Research Needs and Opportunities after COP 6. While the objectives of the CIFOR workshop were for forests and forestry, the discussions on definitions, problems, and opportunities of land-use cover change and forestry as they pertain to the negotiations and stalemate surrounding the Kyoto Protocol served as an excellent background and starting point for the ASB workshop. This report summarizes the objectives, discussions and proposed activities from the ASB workshop but important and a few issues arising from the CIFOR meeting can be found in Annex 2.
