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.

Technical Guidance Series: Forest Degradation and Decision Support Tool

29 May 2015

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 on Development of a REDD+ Reference Level

Technical Guidance Series: Development of a REDD+ Reference Level (2013)

09 May 2013

This manual is directed at national and regional governmental staff and partners assigned to the design and implementation of the technical components of a national and subnational REDD+ program.  The document is also designed to provide technical guidance to potential project developers and implementers of REDD+ interventions.

Technical Guidance Series: Estimating Historical Emissions from Deforestation

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.

Technical Guidance Series: Forest Carbon Stratification Using NFI Data

Technical Guidance Series: Forest Carbon Stratification Using NFI Data

09 December 2013

This module provides guidance on the stratification process for the development of accurate and statistically rigorous estimates of forest carbon stocks based on available National Forest Inventory (NFI) data. Not all forests have the same composition, structure and carbon stocks; therefore forest carbon stratification divides the forest area into groups (strata) with similar carbon stocks .

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.

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

Technical Guidance Series: Emission Factors for Deforestation - Vietnamese

Technical Guidance Series: Emission Factors for Deforestation - Vietnamese

02 October 2014

This module describes the steps necessary to create emission factors (EF) for deforestation using existing carbon stock data. The output of this module is one component of a national or subnational forest monitoring system for REDD+.

Technical Guidance Series: Activity Data for Deforestation - Vietnamese

Technical Guidance Series: Activity Data for Deforestation - Vietnamese

30 January 2014

This module provides guidance for estimating the Activity Data (AD) for deforestation, i.e. the extent of deforestation activities on the ground, using previously developed spatially explicit datasets. The output of this module is one component of a national or subnational forest monitoring system for REDD+.
