12 September 2012

This manual provides standardized field measurements, based on proven field methods, for quantifying carbon emissions and removals from changes in the use and management of lands. These procedures are a key component of a quality assurance and quality control plan needed to provide confidence in results of climate mitigation activities on the land.

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.

Decision support tool: Integrated REDD+ accounting frameworks: Nested national approaches

10 May 2013

This decision support tool provides overall guidance on establishing national-level REDD+ accounting frameworks within which project or subnational approaches are integrated.  The tool complements information provided in the LEAF Technical Guidance on Development of a REDD+ Reference Level (Walker et al.

Guidelines for Stratification for REDD+: Using a National Inventory

03 October 2013

Engaging in REDD+ and seeking to take part in the opportunities and benefits of REDD+ requires credible scientifically-based estimates of emissions and removals of greenhouse gases from human-induced activities that change the cover and use of forest lands. This means data have to be collected on the extent of areas affected by human-induced activities that promote land cover change.

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

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.
