Methodology for Improved Forest Management in Non-industrial Private Forests

This methodology developed by Mountain Association for Community Economic Development provides a quantification methodology for small (5000 acres or less) Non Industrial Private Forests (NIPF) in the Appalachian region of the US that have implemented a certified forest management plan to sustainable harvest their land. The baseline scenario for all small landowners within the region is the most economically advantageous method of harvests all timber than can be sold commonly referred to as high-grading.

This methodology was open for public comment from 19 August 2013 until 18 September 2013. Public comments are closed.

Methods for monitoring of soil carbon stock changes and greenhouse gas emissions and removals in peatland rewetting and conservation project activities (M-PEAT), v1.0

This module provides approaches for monitoring of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from undisturbed, degraded and rewetted domed peatland. The module addresses GHG emissions from the soil organic (peat) carbon pool due to drainage, rewetting and fire.

This module was assessed and approved as part of VM0007.



This methodology was open for public comment from 8 August 2013 until 7 September 2013. Public comments are closed.

Estimation of baseline soil carbon stock changes and greenhouse gas emissions in peatland rewetting and conservation project activities (BL-PEAT), v1.0

This module applies to the baseline scenario of wetlands restoration and conservation (WRC) project activities on peatlands that are expected to be or remain drained, or partly drained, in the absence of the project activity.

This module was assessed and approved as part of VM0007.

Global Commodity Leakage Module: Effective Area Approach, v1.0

This module can be used by Jurisdictional and Nested REDD+ (JNR) programs to quantify a global commodity leakage value that can be applied as a component of the JNR Leakage Tool. The module assesses jurisdictional market leakage associated with the production of agricultural, livestock and forest commodities linked to global markets.

This methodology was open for public comment from 27 June 2013 until 27 July 2013. Public comments are closed.

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.

This methodology was open for public comment from 27 June 2013 until 27 July 2013. Public comments are closed.
