Canada Grassland Protocol

The Reserve partnered with Viresco Solutions to develop a Grassland Protocol for eligible projects in Canada. The protocol provides guidance on how to quantify, monitor, report, and verify GHG emission reductions associated with the avoided conversion of grassland to cropland. This protocol development effort has been funded in part by the Canadian Forage and Grassland Association. The protocol was adopted by the Reserve Board in October 2019.
