VM0009 Methodology for Avoided Ecosystem Conversion, v3.0
14. Agriculture, Forestry, Land Use
06 June 2014
This methodology pioneered by Wildlife Works provides a means to quantify net GHG emission reductions and removals from project activities that prevent conversion of forest to non-forest and of native grassland and shrubland to a non-native state. Version 3.0 differentiates between eight baseline types based on the type of ecosystem, the proximate agent of conversion, the drivers of conversion, whether the specific agent of conversion can be identified and the progression of conversion. A single project may include one or more baseline types.
