Voluntary Carbon Offset Scheme (VCOS) project is a smart partnership between government and the private sector to address climate change. The scheme was established under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment which allows the private sector to provide financial contribution to support tree planting activities that will result in carbon sequestration. A Technical Committee led by the Forest Research Institute Malaysia was tasked to assess carbon stock in Pekan, Kedondong, Nenasi and Resak (Tambahan) Forest Reserve in the South-East Pahang peat swamp forest (PSF) covering an area of about 12,950 ha that has been selected for VCOS site. Results of this study are useful as reference for other carbon stock studies in PSF areas. They can also be used as baseline information for calculating incentives under a voluntary scheme of carbon.
