A challenge for the GEF The GEF needs to demonstrate how its investments achieve Global Environment Benefits (GEBs) Natural resource management projects claim C benefits GEF has no standardized cost-effective methodology to assess C benefits A methodology is needed that is comprehensible, standardized, robust and applicable to ALL GEF projects Socio-economic rigour must cross-cut the whole CBP 3. SEM needed in CBP Modeling - focuses on estimation and forecasting of carbon stocks, flows and GHG emissions on cropland and grazing lands Measurement &amp; monitoring - focus on field measurement, supported by remote sensing to monitor C changes across landscapes with emphasis on agro-forestry and forestry 4. Project Components Component 1: Development of standardized and integrated tools for quantification and assessment of Carbon (including C accounting) and GHG BenefitsComponent 2: Test Cases and capacity building (developed and tested CBP protocols using existing GEF projects in five countries)Component 3: Best practices project design (to strengthen carbon and socio-economic impacts of GEF activities)Component 4: Web and portal design (global access to tools for GEF agencies and project partners) 5. Objective of SEM ModuleReflected in the CBPs objective Cost-effectiveness at project level User-friendliness for project managers Scientifically rigorous in SE methods 6. Component 1 Methodology Development tools for assessment of socio-economic impacts of project implementation Methods to analyze the socio-economic benefits of SLM Alternative land management scenarios Sustainability of C-benefits Sample design: indicators such as wealth, livelihood sources, coping strategies Specification of management systems 7. Component 2 Test Cases user views of the protocol and methods quantifying the local non-C benefits of SLM analyzing costs and returns from SLM interventions sensitivity analysis to assess the impact of policy options 8. Component 3 Capacity Building &amp; KM support to protocol development guidance notes on cost-effectiveness and user- friendliness engagement of local people and communities as full partners in C tracking of interventions assistance to capacity-building at national level in socio-economic aspects 9.
