Sectoral Scope

14. Agriculture, forestry, and other land use (AFOLU)

This module allows for ex ante estimation of carbon stocks in forest litter in the baseline case (for both pre- and post-deforestation stocks) and project case.

Please note: 
  • New projects and projects that did not initiate the public comment period (i.e., that did not request pipeline listing under validation) before November 27, 2023, have until February 27, 2024, to do so using the previous versions of the methodology.
  • Project proponents that have initiated or will initiate a public comment period before February 27, 2024, have until February 27, 2025, to complete validation with previous versions of the methodologies. If they complete validation by then, projects may continue to use these methodologies until they have to transition to the new REDD methodology or until their next baseline reassessment or crediting period renewal, whichever is the earliest.
  • Projects validated with previous versions may continue to use these methodologies until they have to transition to the next methodology or until their next baseline reassessment or crediting period renewal, whichever is the earliest.
