Draft Wetland and Rice Carbon Protocol Now Available
A methodology for project proponents to financially benefit from reducing greenhouse gas emissions by accessing carbon markets through the conversion of land to wetlands and rice is now available in draft form. This methodology focuses on the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, San Francisco Estuary and the coast of California. The Delta Conservancy held an initial stakeholder meeting to receive input from interested parties and the presentation from this meeting is available below. In the coming months, the methodology will be submitted to the American Carbon Registry for consideration. At this time, there will be further opportunities for public engagement as a part of the review and approval process.
