For assessing and reporting GHG emissions from reservoirs.
The GHG Reservoir (G-res) Tool is a web-based tool which allows hydropower companies, investors, consultants and other stakeholders to more accurately report on the net impact of GHG emissions resulting from the introduction of a reservoir to a landscape.
The tool works for both existing and planned reservoirs and allows for the allocation of emissions to the various water-uses of a reservoir.
Three-day interactive training course designed to allow individuals with a basic knowledge of geographic information systems and reservoir GHG dynamics to independently use the G-res Tool and accurately interpret the results.
The course involves a scientific introduction to the tool and a step-by-step tutorial on usage, as well as training on case scenarios and results analyses. When the course is finished, participants will be accredited as certified G-res Tool users.
