For Stakeholders

Request for Proposals: Validation and Verification Body Review of Draft Methodology for Afforestation, Reforestation, and Revegetation Projects

Verra is inviting proposals from validation and verification bodies (VVB) to conduct the technical assessment of a draft Methodology for Afforestation, Reforestation, and Revegetation (ARR) Projects.

This consolidated and globally applicable methodology will significantly streamline the development of ARR projects worldwide. The methodology substantially revises the Clean Development Mechanism Afforestation and reforestation of lands except wetlands (AR-ACM0003) and associated tools and incorporates innovative approaches to standardize additionality, crediting baselines, and account leakage, and to accommodate small-scale tree planting activities. The methodology is applicable to direct ARR activities (e.g., manual planting, broadcast seeding) and indirect ARR activities (e.g., activities that permit or facilitate natural regeneration, such as herbivory exclosures).

The proposal must be submitted to Abel Marcarini, Senior Program Officer, at by 11:59 pm EDT on 31 October 2021. We aim to finalize the selection of the VVB by 15 November 2021.
