The region refers to the geographic area where the project that is being certified under the Global Carbon Standard (GCS) is located. This information is important because it helps to identify where the project is taking place and it can also provide insight into the specific environmental and socio-economic conditions of the area where the project is located. The region can be defined in different ways, such as by state or province, by administrative district, or by a specific ecosystem or biosphere reserve.

For example, a reforestation project in the Amazon Rainforest will be recorded under the region of Amazon, while a similar project in the Congo Basin will be recorded under the region of Congo Basin. This information is important because it allows the GCS registry to track the distribution of projects across different regions, and it also helps to ensure that the projects are being monitored and reported on in a consistent manner, taking into account the specific context of the region where the project takes place. It also helps to track and verify the authenticity of the carbon debits and their origin.
