23 July 2013
This methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions and removals generated by avoiding re-logging and/or the rehabilitation of previously logged forest. Rehabilitation is achieved by implementing silvicultural techniques to increase forest density, such as cutting climbers and vines, liberation thinning, or enrichment planting.
This methodology is applicable to logged or degraded natural evergreen tropical rainforest.
This methodology was revised on 23 July 2013 to address baseline scenario requirements for accounting GHG emissions released from harvested wood products and on 24 August 2011 to update equations for estimating wood product carbon stocks.
