USAID LEAF Final Report

12 April 2016

Over a five-year implementation period from 2011-2016, the USAID LEAF program delivered significant results against its overall objective of strengthening the capacity of target countries to achieve meaningful and sustained reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from the forestry-land use sector.

Technical Guidance Series: Developing a Reference Level for Carbon Stock Enhancements

05 January 2016

Carbon stock enhancement refers to the creation or improvement of the capacity of carbon pools and reservoirs to store and sequester carbon. Within the REDD+ context, activities that are considered carbon stock enhancement include afforestation/reforestation and forest management interventions to restore degraded forests.

Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation requires strong commitment and investments from governments and other stakeholders. Effective measures need to be designed and implemented to divert business as usual pathways into low emission trajectories.

Degradation affects up to 100 million hectares of forest every year, which is nearly 10 times greater than the area impacted by deforestation. However there is very little guidance on how to detect, measure and monitor forest degradation.

Technical Guidance Series: Framework Document

02 January 2014

The purpose of this framework document is to outline the individual steps and technical components that together form the overall technical framework of carbon accounting for the NFMS implementation and RL/REL development. From this framework, users may identify specific modules that are most relevant to their responsibilities and area of expertise.

09 December 2013

This module is used as a first step in developing a reference level for deforestation only that can then be combined with modules used to estimate historical emissions and removals from other REDD+ activities.  This module uses the AD-D module and the EF-D module to estimate historical emissions from deforestation, defined as the long-term or permanent conversion of forest land to non-forest la
