This tool provides a step-by-step approach to estimate a leakage deduction for Jurisdictional and Nested REDD+ (JNR) programs applying a Scenario 2 or Scenario 3 approach. This tool provides default values to determine the amount of activity shifting leakage and market leakage from global commodities, domestically traded products and subsistence activities. This tool also accounts for deforestation-to-degradation leakage. The tool is applicable for subnational JNR programs without nation-wide monitoring and reporting of emissions.
Jurisdictional programs may apply either the VDM0036 Global Commodity Leakage Module: Effective Area Approach or VDM0037 Global Commodity Leakage Module: Production Approach to calculate a global commodity leakage value instead of applying the default value provided within the tool.
