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.

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.
