Tool for the Estimation of Uncertainty for IFM Project Activities, v1.0

IFM

The tool provides a step-wise approach to estimate uncertainty in the estimation of emissions and removals in IFM project activities.  The tool focuses on uncertainty associated with the estimation of stocks in carbon pools and changes in carbon stocks and on uncertainty in the assessment of project emissions

This tool is applicable for use under VM0005 Converting from Low to High Productive Forests.

Improved Forest Management on Lands Subject to Unextiguished Indigenous Rights and Title (LtPF)

IFM-LtPF

The methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions generated from improving forest management and preventing planned logging. This methodology accounts for a reduction in GHG emissions by stopping logging and includes methods to estimate carbon stock enhancement of forests. 

This methodology is applicable to forest lands managed for wood products on state lands subject to unextinguished indigenous rights and title where the state and the indigenous peoples have negotiated and reached land use planning agreements which lead to improved forest practices. 

This methodology was open for public comment from 25 May 2011 until 10 February 2011. Public comments are closed.

Estimation of carbon stocks in the above- and belowground biomass in live tree and non-tree pools (CP-AB), v1.1

REDD

This module allows for ex ante estimation of carbon stocks in above- and belowground tree and non-tree woody biomass in the baseline case (for both pre- and post-deforestation stocks), and project case and for ex post estimation of change in carbon stocks in above- and belowground tree biomass in the project case.

REDD Modules, v1.0

REDD

This methodology provides a set of modules which when used together quantifying GHG emission reductions and removals by avoiding unplanned and planned deforestation and forest degradation. The modules provide a set of procedures for various components of a methodology. The modules can be used to quantify emission reductions from planned and unplanned deforestation and for activities to reduce emissions from forest degradation caused by extraction of wood for fuel.

Calculating Emission Reductions in Rice Management Systems

This methodology quantifies GHG emission reductions from improving agricultural land management practices in rice cultivation.  Flooded rice fields are a key source of atmospheric methane. The methodology proposes an approach to reduce methane emissions from rice cultivation without a significant reduction in rice production by minimizing the duration and frequency of flooding and altering some other aspects of rice cultivation practices. The methodology uses the biogeochemical process model DNDC to quantify N2O and CH4 emissions under the baseline and project scenarios.

This methodology was open for public comment from 12 May 2011 until 10 June 2011. Public comments are closed.

Avoiding Planned Deforestation of Undrained Peat Swamp Forests

REDD+CUPP, APD

This methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions and removals generated by activities that avoid planned deforestation and forest degradation of peat swamp forest. The methodology also quantifies the GHG emission reductions and removals from activities that avoid peat conversion and considers the GHG benefit from assisted natural regeneration.  Some of the main methodological aspects of the methodology are:

This methodology is applicable to tropical forests on peat swamp that are designated for production purposes. 



This methodology was open for public comment from 12 May 2011 until 10 June 2011. Public comments are closed.

Methodology for Agricultural Land Management: Improved Grassland Management

ALM - IGM

The methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions resulting from improved grassland management projects. The methodology identifies and accounts carbon stock changes and GHG emissions in the soil carbon, aboveground woody biomass and belowground biomass pools, fossil fuel combustion, enteric emissions, biomass burning, and nitrogen fertilizer application.

The methodology is broadly applicable to grass-dominated systems where baseline grassland management activities result primarily in livestock production.

This methodology was open for public comment from 14 January 2011 until 13 February 2011. Public comments are closed.
