This module allows for estimating carbon stock changes and GHG emissions related to unplanned deforestation and unplanned wetland degradation in the baseline scenario. Forest degradation is not considered.

This module was assessed and approved as part of VM0007.

The module was revised on 31 July 2012 by The Field Museum to improve uncertainty estimates in the baseline scenario and allow for new modeling approaches (version 3.0). The revision assessment reports are available on the VMD0017 (X-UNC) page.

The module was revised on 8 September 2011 by The Field Museum to add population as an option for estimating the baseline deforestation rate (version 2.0).

The module was revised on 8 September 2020 by Restore America’s Estuaries and Silvestrum Climate Associates to expand its applicability to activities on tidal wetlands.
