While there are many international guidelines for forest carbon assessment, very little information exists on measuring the carbon sequestration potential of bamboo. Fast growing, with a high rate of carbon storage and a wide spread across the tropics and subtropics, understanding the dynamics of carbon cycle in the bamboo forest ecosystem is critically important for helping us make the best use of bamboo for climate change mitigation and economic development. This manual has been developed to provide clear instructions for technical staff who conduct bamboo forest inventories and bamboo carbon assessments.
