Understanding countries' status and challenges for the estimation of carbon stock changes from mineral soils in national greenhouse gas inventories: Preliminary survey findings

Working Paper

Despite the growing global support for capacity building to improve soil management, the estimation and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals, especially from mineral soils in national GHG inventories, is still very limited. In 2021, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and FAO conducted a global survey to assess how countries have addressed the estimation of carbon stock changes (CSCs) in mineral soils in their GHG inventories. This report presents the findings from the survey.
