This grant will support scientists working with the government of Gabon to generate key baseline information on carbon stocks and dynamics in the country’s rain forests and to assess the potential of remote sensing data combined with ground measurements for forest carbon monitoring. At least one reference site will be established in each Congo Basin country, to facilitate comparisons and testing of the relevance of methodologies developed in Gabon for basin-wide application. The project will help show the extent to which carbon stocks and flux information can be obtained for Gabon and other Congo Basin countries, while enabling Gabon’s United National Framework Convention on Climate Change focal point to develop an informed position prior to the Conference of the Parties (COP-15) at Copenhagen in December 2009.
