Estimation of Emissions from Market Leakage, v1.0

ALM

The module consists of methods for estimating whether or not reductions in production of products resulting from project activities is reasonably likely to result in increased emissions from the production of those products elsewhere.

This methodology was open for public comment from 5 October 2011 until 3 November 2011. Visit the Methodology for Soil Carbon to view comments.

Quantifying N2O Emissions Reductions in Agricultural Crops through Nitrogen Fertilizer Rate Reduction, v1.1

ALM

This methodology quantifies reductions of nitrous oxide from cropping systems. The methodology applies to projects in the United States that optimize nitrogen fertilizer through the use of verifiable best management practices, specific to the crop, soil and environmental conditions of the project.

This methodology was open for public comment from 8 September 2010 until 8 October 2010. Public comments are closed.

Improved Forest Management in Temperate and Boreal Forests (LtPF), v1.2

IFM-LtPF

This methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions generated by improving forest management and preventing logging in temperate and boreal forests. Specifically, the methodology quantifies GHG emission reductions from Logged to Protected Forest (LtPF) activities, or activities that protect logged or degraded forests from further logging or that protect unlogged forests from future logging. 

This methodology was open for public comment from 2 August 2010 until 2 September 2010. Public comments are closed.

Methodology for the Adoption of Sustainable Grasslands through Adjustment of Fire and Grazing

ALM

This methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions and removals from activities that introduce sustainable adjustment of the density of grazing animals and the frequency of prescribed fires into an uncultivated grassland landscape. The methodology shows how to determine additional carbon offsets through grassland soil sequestration and/or reduction in methane emissions as a result of reducing fire frequency and altering the density and/or activities of grazing animals.

This methodology was open for public comment from 6 July 2010 until 4 August 2010. Public comments are closed.

Methodology for Conservation Projects that Avoid Planned Land Use Conversion in Peat Swamp Forests, v1.0

REDD-APD

This methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions and removals generated by preventing land-use change of tropical peat forests.  The methodology accounts for a reduction in GHG emissions by avoiding deforestation and peat drainage as well as an increase in carbon stock.  

This methodology is applicable to undrained tropical peat forest in Southeast Asia.  In the absence of a project, the land would have been completely deforested by a corporate or government entity.

This methodology was open for public comment from 29 January 2010 until 27 February 2010. Public comments are closed.

Methodology for Improved Forest Management: Conversion from Logged to Protected Forest, v1.3

IFM-LtPF

This methodology quantifies the GHG removals generated from preventing logging of forests that would have been logged in the absence of carbon finance. This methodology is applicable where the baseline scenario includes planned timber harvest, and under the project scenario, forest use is limited to activities that do not result in commercial timber harvest or forest degradation.

This methodology is applicable to tropical, temperate or boreal forests.

This methodology was open for public comment from 13 January 2010 until 11 February 2010. Public comments are closed.
