Abstract: This paper critically examined the emerging discourses on carbon accounting in the Philippines and analyzed how the resulting ‘knowledge claims’ relate to the state’s current programs and policies in the forestry sector. The paper concludes that over the past decade, carbon accounting has increasingly been adopted as an additional ‘rationalization’ for forest governance schemes in the Philippines, via policies and programs that sought to further express the value of forests in the abstracted units of carbon stocks and carbon credits. The study further finds that observably less visible in these discourses are the direct participation of those less-versed in the technically complex language of carbon accounting, such as smallholder farmers and indigenous groups. As numerous studies have emphasized the critical role played by these marginalized groups in forest management, it is thus important that further scrutiny is given to the implications and impacts of carbon accounting in forests and other land areas.
