File CARBON IN DRYLAND SOILS Multiple essential functions by Moffatt Ngugi — last modified Aug 27, 2014 10:45 AM
The carbon cycle has been a core environmental issue in recent decades, especially regarding the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). For many years, carbon was only considered through the lens of global warming mitigation via the reduction of concentrations of atmospheric CO2, a major greenhouse gas* (GHG). Political responses were thus focused mainly on industrial, transportation and energy sectors—major GHG emitters. C ou nt r y c onc er n s, a s ref le c te d i n re sea rch programmes, were therefore initially focused on greenhouse gas fluxes: quantification of global fluxes, identification and quantification of GHG sources and sinks (storage process), and especially the reduction of carbon emission sources and the increase in sinks**. Forest initiatives were also accounted for, but secondarily, via carbon sequestration in woody biomass. Agriculture and soil carbon were, however, overlooked in international negotiations. More recently, following the publication of the Third Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2001 and the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment in 2005, ecosystem vulnerability took a more pivotal position in scientific and public discussions and issues. Soil vulnerability to climate change, i.e. the vulnerability of organisms they contain or support, their functioning in the ecosystem and thus the services they provide (e.g. erosion control, see next page), is poorly understood. Few studies have focused on the post-disturbance sensitivity and recovery potential of ecosystem services and functions related to the carbon cycle (essential in soil functioning), at plot or more general levels, especially in highly vulnerable dryland regions.

File Ethiopia USFS Trip Report: Biomass and Soil Carbon Estimation Mission in Support of USAID PLI II; May 2011 by Jason Ko — last modified Aug 20, 2013 04:23 PM
The mission activities were to involve development of a biomass and carbon monitoring protocol that would allow pastoralists in Oromiya, Ethiopia to monitor range conditions and determine the effects of range management on carbon sequestration. This monitoring is an effort to build on an previous work conducted by the Tropical Forestry Group, which conducted carbon inventories in Oromiya in 2009. The second objective was to provide training to local NGO and research staff in the Oromiya region so that they could utilize the protocols.
