Improved stove programs need robust methods to estimate carbon offsets

Article English OPEN
Johnson, Michael; Edwards, Rufus; Masera, Omar;

Current standard methods result in significant discrepancies in carbon offset accounting compared to approaches based on representative community based subsamples, which provide more realistic assessments at reasonable cost. Perhaps more critically, neither of the curre... View more
