Active 28 September 2023

This module must be used with VM0047 Afforestation, Reforestation, and Revegetation (ARR) methodology to estimate activity shifting and market leakage from ARR activities. The module calculates leakage based on the reduction in agricultural commodities or fuelwood produced within the project area, less any leakage mitigation activities enhancing production outside the project area. It provides estimates of net production replaced in the market, the amount of new forest lands cleared for displaced production outside the project area, and the associated carbon stock emissions.
