This document sets out the ethos, tools, and methods used to provide a greenhouse gas (GHG) balance estimate for restoration projects, using projects from the Endangered Landscapes Programme as a case study. The document provides guidance on using two GHG assessment tools, EX-ACT and the Carbon Benefits Project toolkit, to estimate the climate change mitigation benefit of landscape-scale restoration projects and the restoration activities they include.
