The Cost of Inventorying and Monitoring Carbon: Lessons from the Noel Kempff Climate Action Project
Abstract:The availability of cost-effective inventorying and monitoring systems is critical to the successful development of forest-based carbon offset projects. Based on our assessment of the Noel Kempff Climate Action Project in Bolivia, the largest pilot carbon offset project, we predict that monitoring costs are unlikely to exceed $0.25 per ton of offset. Yet this value will vary according to many site-specific characteristics, project scope, scale, and offset accounting methods.
