CABERRA, Nov. 5, 2020— The Mullion Group today announced its assistance in creating a workshop for open-source tools in the Agriculture, Forestry, and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector.

Workshop participants from numerous nations in South America and Central America made significant progress towards finding a mutual view on how open-source and collaborative technological solutions might support them in carbon emissions reporting. 

The Mullion Group used its FLINT and FLINTpro softwares to demonstrate how open-source tools can aid in overcoming key challenges of emissions reporting. The workshop was a collaboration between the World Bank, CONAFOR, AMEXCID, USAID, U.S. Forest Service, and SilvaCarbon. 

Participants agreed most countries seem to be moving from reporting to planning, in terms of what they require from an MRV system. Overall, the biggest reported challenges related to data (mostly relating to land cover maps), were how to accurately track and store the information.

“Emissions reporting has never been more important than in the present time,” said CFO of Mullins Group James Leitch.

 “In order to fight the continuous battle of climate change, we need to be able to accurately manage land-sector greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Workshops such as these are crucial in the process of learning how to effectively calculate land sector carbon emissions, while simultaneously advancing our understanding of how to counteract them.”
