The background reading is not necessary for participants to complete prior to attending the session. For those students lacking a background in forest inventory, the inventory guidelines document will be helpful to read prior to the course. Please note that this document is available only in English. The list of websites provides links to background documents, methods, and protocols for forest sector related GHG accounting and inventory, forest carbon inventory, as well as related programs. This listing is not exhaustive, but will be a useful resource for those looking for information relating to various aspects of forest carbon inventory and accounting, as well as GHG reporting. Materials on the IPCC website are available in a variety of languages; documents on most other websites are in English.
A document containing links to websites will be posted on 18 May 2012.
