Carbon Benefit Tools (CBP)

The Carbon Benefits Project (CBP) provides web-based tools to estimate the carbon balance of projects in the land-use sector. In the CBP, the impact on the carbon balance of a given project can be assessed using three approaches: ‘Simple Assessment’, ‘Detailed Assessment’, and ‘Dynamic Modelling Option,’ which vary in terms of accuracy and data input demands.

The tool also provides the Drivers-Pressures-States-Impacts-Responses (DPSIR) framework, which allows analysis of the project’s social and cost-benefits. The Colorado State University, partner Universities (East Anglia and Leicester), and UN-Environment have developed the CBP and its platform produces a framework that can be used by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) projects.
