Sectoral Scope

14. Agriculture, Forestry, Land Use

This module allows for estimating GHG emissions caused by the activity-shifting leakage for projects avoiding degradation from fuelwood collection and charcoal production.

Please note: 
  • Projects listed as under development (or that have requested pipeline listing) using VMD0012 must request pipeline listing under validation within three months of the announcement, i.e., before March 19, 2024.
  • Project proponents that have initiated or will initiate a public comment period before March 19, 2024, have until December 19, 2024, to complete validation with VMD0012. If they complete validation by then, projects may continue to use VMD0012 until their next baseline reassessment or crediting period renewal, whichever is the earliest.
  • Projects validated under VMD0012 may continue to use it until their next baseline reassessment or crediting period renewal, whichever is the earliest.
