Adaptation of Harvested Wood Products from Climate Action Reserve’s Forest Project Protocol v.3.2 to Canadian forest types


The purpose of this project is to take methodologies designed by the California Climate Action Reserve for calculating carbon storage within wood products, and adapt them for application within British Columbia. The project will involve a review of the methodologies from Forest Project Protocol v.3.2 (FPP), United States Department of Energy’s 1605(b) report and Canadian-specific research on harvested wood products. New equations will be developed for calculating carbon storage in Canadian wood products. The research will improve full carbon stock accounting in Canadian forest carbon projects and increase the ability for forest carbon projects to proceed in Canada.
