For Stakeholders

Verra Replaces CDM AR-ACM0003 and AR-AMS0007 Methodologies with New Methodology for Afforestation, Reforestation, and Revegetation Projects

Verra will replace CDM methodologies AR-ACM0003 Afforestation and reforestation of lands except wetlands and AR-AMS0007 Afforestation and reforestation project activities implemented on lands other than wetlands with the Methodology for Afforestation, Reforestation, and Revegetation Projects in the VCS Program. After this new VCS methodology’s approval and publication (expected in late 2022), projects must use it to quantify GHG removals from ARR project activities.

Projects that have completed pipeline listing prior to the approval and publication of the Methodology for Afforestation, Reforestation and Revegetation Projects may use CDM methodologies AR-ACM0003 and AR-AMS0007 if they complete validation and request registration within six months from the approval date of the new VCS methodology.

If you have any questions, please contact Diego Navarrete, Senior Program Officer, Natural Climate Solutions, VCS Methodologies (dnavarrete@nullverra.org).
