The methodology provides procedures to estimate the GHG emission reductions and/or removals from the adoption of sustainable grassland management (SGM) practices on grasslands in semi-arid regions. Eligible project activities include a broad range of SGM activities such as improving the rotation of grazing animals, limiting the grazing of animals on degraded pastures and restoration of severely degraded lands. Where biogeochemical models can be demonstrated to be applicable in the project region, they may be used to estimate SOC pool changes. Where such models are not applicable, the methodology uses direct measurement methods to estimate SOC pool changes.
