Courses will provide you with a broad overview and understanding of climate change, carbon foot-print and the carbon market, covering the key concepts, the main international standards, carbon accounting and reporting frameworks, organizational and product carbon footprint/ labelling, etc., as well as the key data, tools, and resources in the Net-Zero development and ecosystem. The course will also provide you the skills on calculating carbon audit and footprint monitoring, showcase business case study results, and will low-carbon and carbon reduction projects development.
Scores of subnational governments are taking steps to manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, a cause of climate change. Profiling GHG emissions is a key foundation to implementing effective climate change policy and programmes. In relation to Nigeria’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC)’s target, it’s mandatory for subnational governments to be equipped to understand the process of emissions tracking in order to prioritize their climate actions and enhance the design of their emissions reduction strategies.
The main scope of the course is to support subnational governments in developing and mainstreaming their GHG emissions tracking capacity. This interactive course provides an introduction to the topic.
Mitigating methane emissions from landfills is a cost-effective way to reduce emissions from solid wastes. Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas that traps heat 28times more effectively than carbon dioxide over 100-year timescale. It has over 23% effect on climate change impact in the world. This emission knowledge-based training on measuring and verifying emissions recovery or removal from landfills is very essential for quantifying and managing emissions and generating offsets from urban and municipal waste.
GHG accounting is a process of quantifying and verifying emissions reduction. It serves as the basis for GRI global report index, when it comes to carbon footprint and Certified emission reduction (CER). Countries, organizations and individuals are taking action to manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, a cause of climate change. This training course will cover the basics of GHG accounting for projects. The course is based on templates from the UN Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), ISO, GHG Protocol, the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and many other carbon accounting methodologies.
The course framework presents a universal and comprehensive understanding of accounting requirements consistent with international GHG programs for measurement of carbon balance in typical forest situations (pessimistic forestry situation and improved forestry situation). Throughout the modules, in-depth illustrations and instances will be fully provided from existing GHG programs for carbon sinks in forest and other land use projects, and the energy contribution to forest carbon management. The course will provide participants strategies to fight climate change that combine vigorous fossil fuel emission reductions with a voluntary program for improving forestry management, forest conservation and reforestation.
