a. Methodology drafted to qualify and quantify adaptation benefits of mitigation projects in Tripura.

b. Identification of baseline and project scenarios.

c. Selection of the adequate carbon assessment tool.

d. Selection of sample sites.

e. Determination of data requirements based on existing data, analytical capacity and available resources.

f. Data collection design (incl. field test, remote sensing etc.)

g. Biophysical mitigation potential screened for various types of land use in Tripura.

h. Documentation of vegetation structure, biodiversity and biomass stocks and anticipated changes.

i. Assessment of co-benefits (for biodiversity and others)

j. Assessment carbon finance options that could provide a sustainable source of additional funds to implement VDPs.
