forestry -- Forest stakeholder workshop on forest protocol status Posted: 03 Jul 2008 14:53:55
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) staff invite you to participate in a workshop to discuss progress toward updating the California Climate Action Registry (CCAR) forest protocols. The Air Resources Board adopted the CCAR forest protocols in October 2007 as non-regulatory quantification methods for purposes of voluntary greenhouse gas accounting. The Board also directed ARB staff to initiate a process to update the protocols in order to encourage broader forest sector involvement and reduce potential barriers to participation. That process began in November 2007 with the organization of a Forest Protocol Workgroup by CCAR and a target of updating the protocols by December 2008. The Forest Protocol Workgroup has made significant progress toward meeting its goals. The workshop to discuss progress will be held at the following time and location: Date: Friday, July 18, 2008 Time: 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM (Pacific Time) Location: Coastal Hearing Room, 2nd floor Address: Cal/EPA Headquarters 1001 “I” Street (2nd floor) Sacramento, California 95814 A workshop agenda and the presentation will be posted prior to the workshop meeting at ARB’s Climate Change and Forests website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/forestry/forestry.htm, and more information on attending the workshop can be found at the website as well. For those unable to attend the workshop in person, a live internet webcast with audio and video will be available beginning at 9:00 a.m. on July 18, 2008 at: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/broadcast. During the workshop the webcast audience will have the opportunity to submit questions and comments by email. If you have a slow internet connection, we recommend you download the presentation prior to the workshop and follow the proceedings with the audio-only option. We welcome and encourage your participation at this workshop. If you have questions regarding the workshop, please contact Jeanne Panek, at (916) 322-1029, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
