The Socio-Economic Tools

The CBP socio-economic component serves to capture human-biophysical interactions relating to a project's carbon and greenhouse gas balance.

It aids the project in understanding a land user's socio-economic rationale for adopting certain land management practices and not others by identifying the underlying drivers and barriers of adoption. It also helps to determine the tradeoffs that land users make in adopting carbon- and greenhouse gas-friendly practices.

This facilitates "no regrets" decision making when balancing development and carbon sequestration objectives, helping to assess the sustainability of carbon and greenhouse gas benefits.

The CBP socio-economic component consists of an online Driver-Impact-Response Analysis and the Cost Benefit Analysis.
