Verra reviewed the methodology in accordance with Section 9 of the Methodology Approval Process v4.0 and determined that the baseline approach for SOC stocks would require updates. The scope of this methodology also overlaps with newer ALM methodologies. The methodology is inactive as of 10 March 2022. New projects are encouraged to use other methodologies eligible under the VCS Program.
This modular methodology is designed to apply to ALM projects, including changes to agricultural practices, grassland and rangeland restorations, soil carbon protection and accrual benefits from reductions in erosion, grassland protection projects, and treatments designed to improve diversity and productivity of grassland and savanna plant communities. The associated modules provide methods for quantifying and monitoring changes in carbon accrual in, and emissions from, soils and other GHG pools and sources that may be affected by AFOLU projects.
This methodology was open for public comment from 5 October 2011 until 3 November 2011. Public comments are closed.
