This proposed module quantifies GHG emission reductions associated with the implementation of Reduced Impact Logging for Climate (RIL-C) practices in natural forests of the northern Republic of the Congo. The module is applicable to a wide range of conditions, locations, and concession ownerships. It is to be used in conjunction with VCS methodology VM0035 Methodology for Improved Forest Management through Reduced Impact Logging, v1.0.


The proposed module is being developed by The Nature Conservancy (opens on external site), and is currently at “Step 3: Draft Methodology Development” of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process, 4.3 (PDF).
