Sampling Method and Location of the Plots

The sampling method described in Chapter 10 could be adopted to determine the sample size, number and size of plots. The sampling procedure will be more complex since, at a national level, the area covered under each land stratum or category is large and spatially spread over large regions with diverse rainfall, soil and topographic conditions and management systems, compared to projects, which are normally spread over thousands of hectares. Thus, the sample plots could be larger than those of carbon mitigation or land development projects, since the area under each land strata is likely to be large, running to millions of hectares. The selected number of plots should be located on the spatial latitude-longitude grid map depicting different land strata. These sample plots should be located in the field using GPS readings and marked on the field as well as on the map (refer to Chapter 10 for the procedure).
