Carbon Accounting Methodology for Project Activities that Reduce Emissions from Mosaic Deforestation and Degradation

Terra Global
October, 2010

This methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions and removals generated in mosaic and landscape scale REDD+ projects by allowing such project activities to be combined with improved forest management, afforestation, reforestation and re-vegetation activities, as well as clean cookstoves initiatives. This allows for a more holistic landscape approach to REDD+ activities that integrates efforts to protect forests with programs to improve the livelihoods of rural communities. This methodology received Verified Carbon Standard approval in October 2013.
