VM0007 REDD+ Methodology Framework (REDD-MF), v1.5
Avoided Deforestation Partners
14. Agriculture, Forestry, Land Use
09 March 2015
This methodology provides a set of modules for various components of a methodology for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD). The modules, when used together, quantify GHG emission reductions and removals from avoiding unplanned and planned deforestation and forest degradation. This methodology is applicable to forest lands, forested wetlands and forested peatlands that would be deforested or degraded in the absence of the project activity. The methodology includes a module for activities to reduce emissions from forest degradation caused by extraction of wood for fuel. No modules are included for activities to reduce emissions from forest degradation caused by illegal harvesting of trees for timber; such a module may be included in the future. The methodology also includes a module for activities that include forest regeneration.
