JNR Leakage Tool, v1.0


JNR Leakage Tool, v1.0

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 Global Commodity Leakage Module: Effective Area Approach or Global Commodity Leakage Module: Production Approach to calculate a global commodity leakage value instead of applying the default value provided within the tool.

Translations of this tool are provided. Please note that English is the operating language of the VCS Program, so the English versions and interpretations of VCS tools take precedence over these translations.
