REALU methodology workshop
This week, ASB Partnership scientists are meeting in Bogor, Indonesia for a workshop to discuss and explore methodologies that can be used to effectively account for leakage, often seen as a situation where attempts to reduce carbon emissions from one place causes an increase in emissions in another place. Strategic options for a nested approach in the implementation of a whole landscape approach in reducing carbon emissions will also be discussed.
The scientists aim to harmonize concepts and approaches as they embark on the implementation of REALU (Reducing Emissions from all Land Uses) phase II project in Cameroon, Vietnam, Peru and Indonesia. Findings from the project are expected to feed into REDD and Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) initiatives at sub-national and national levels.
