An innovative carbon accounting methodology – Sustainable Agriculture Land Management (SALM) – was approved by the Voluntary Carbon Standards (VCS) and validated in Kenya. SALM allows access of smallholder farmers in developing countries to carbon markets.
This e-course, based on the new SALM carbon accounting methodology, presents how soil carbon is monitored and accounted in an agricultural land management project, how the SALM methodology is applied in Kenya, and how it benefits thousands of smallholder farmers by generating the triple wins as mentioned above. It aims to equip learners with basic knowledge and skills in developing and monitoring an agricultural soil carbon project with easy-to-understand course contents and visual learning tools throughout the course.
Practitioners who work on sustainable land management projects, agriculture development projects, as well as those who are interested in carbon monitoring. The audience may be potential project developers, professionals and extension workers working in government, consultants from private sector, as well as educators and graduate students.
