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.
The course contains 4 modules:
- Agriculture Sector’s Potential to Reduce Climate Change Impacts;
- SALM: A New Agricultural Carbon Accounting Methodology;
- Soil Organic Carbon Accounting in Agricultural Projects;
- The Kenya Case
The pilot e-course was launched in November 2013 and received positive feedback from participants. To learn more about this course, go to:
