Can any one person change the sky?
What was previously an absurd question is today one of necessity. Individual leaders will be the driving force behind global efforts to rapidly reduce emissions polluting our atmosphere.
The 2018 Sky Changers Awards are an afternoon celebration of the power of individuals. The Awards will recognize leaders who use education and science to achieve measurable climate stabilizing results. The 2018 Sky Changers Awards celebrate individ...

Jonathon Shopley, the Director of Natural Capital Partners, interviews John-O Niles, the founder of The Carbon Institute in a wide-ranging interview about the unique challenges for conserving forests, the requirements of the Paris Agreement, and training the on-the-ground workforce that shift policies to protect ecosystems.
"Forest conservation and restoration is an acre-by-acre fight. This makes forestry harder to scale. It’s not a technology you can introduce, or even a single policy that works from one community to the next, and there’s definitely not ...
The Carbon Institute director and founder John-O Niles has been awarded in the first round of the Henry Arnhold fellowship of the Mulago Foundation, beginning in 2016, with training heading into 2017. The fellowship is provided to social entrepreneurs focused on scalable solutions to conservation and climate problems.
The Henry Arnhold fellowship program was launched with the belief that the social entrepreneurship movement needs to penetrate more deeply into conservation and because development efforts to help the poor will ultimately fail if humankind continues to ...
In the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo, most greenhouse gas emissions come from the land-use sector (deforestation, degradation, agriculture, urban expansion).
Although both countries have many qualified carbon professionals, they still lack a sufficient number of well-trained terrestrial carbon accountants. These carbon accountants are needed to understand greenhouse gas (GHG) stocks and flows, to gain access to climate finance, to help inform mitigation plans and programs, and to report on pledges made internationally under the Paris ...
Professor Gao Jinping presents about the Terrestrial Carbon Accounting Certificate program being developed to train government foresters in China.
The Carbon Institute partners from China, Indonesia, and the United States participated in the 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP23) for the UN climate change convention in November, hosted by Fiji in Bonn, Germany.
This was a busy COP for The Carbon Institute. During COP23, the partners presented about the Terrestrial Carbon Accounting (TCA) Certificate programs in China and Indonesia, which will ...
On November 6th, The Carbon Institute kicked off its two weeks at COP 23 with a participatory side-event. The event invited the audience and panelists to discuss a key challenge for implementing the Paris Agreement - that greenhouse gas accounting and inventories are still an enormous challenge to many countries. Fully implementing the Transparency Framework of the Paris Agreement will require a massive increase in professionals with GHG accounting skills. Participants discussed what larger role academic institutions could play in supporting government needs.
The Carbon Institute partners will be participating at the following side events at the UNFCCC COP23 in Bonn:
Paris Agreement-style capacity building: Balancing international standards & national context
Monday November 6, 16:45 – 18:15
Meeting Room 12 (150)
Mainstreaming climate change into educational systems
Wednesday, November 8, 13:00 – 14:30

The Carbon Institute will be launching the first academic certificate programs in Terrestrial Carbon Accounting (TCA) in China and Indonesia in 2018. These TCA Certificate programs will be the first in China and Indonesia to comprehensively teach the suite of skills required for advanced carbon accounting in the land-use, land use change, and forestry sector. These certificate programs are carefully designed for long-term sustainability and to provide an expanded forest carbon workforce that directly meets government TCA needs.
Over the last year, The Carbon ...
