International project to help mitigate impacts of climate change
An international project will establish world’s first measurement and modeling system for carbon.
The intended purpose is to better mitigate the impacts of climate change, to boost the trade of carbon emissions and to verify that carbon-offset initiatives really work.
The two-year project ‘Carbon benefits’ will be funded with 9.16 billion USD through the Global Environment Facility GEF and the United Nations Environment Program.
The University of East Anglia in the UK, two universities in the USA and the WWF (World Wildlife Foundation) are among many partners involved in the project.
