VCS will host a webinar to discuss newly released draft requirements for crediting Wetlands Restoration and Conservation (WRC) activities.

Wednesday, 13 June

11 a.m. EST (1600 GMT)

The WRC draft requirements are the first ever for methodologies that credit the greenhouse gases removed by wetlands, including mangroves, freshwater tidal coastal wetlands, salt marshes, sea grasses and floodplains.

The draft requirements, incorporated directly into the VCS AFOLU Requirements document, are open for public comment until 23 June 2012.

Comments on the WRC requirements or questions about the webinar may be submitted to
