This database, created by WRI in 2002, includes descriptive and contact information for more than 80 carbon sequestration projects around the world. It also provides information on the projects' efforts toward providing and evaluating non-carbon benefits. The criteria selected to categorize such impacts were drawn from the nine international processes utilizing criteria and indicators for assessing forest extent, health, management, and other socio-economic benefits. In addition, to the extent possible, WRI has made available indicators, guidelines and other measurement tools used to evaluate these impacts. The database does not attempt to evaluate the sustainability of individual projects; rather, it provides initial information to users for further study.
