Simplified Baseline and Monitoring Methodologies for Selected A/R Small-scale CDM Project Activity Categories
Download the PDF document from UNFCCC
The document contains simplified baseline and monitoring methodologies for selected small-scale A/R CDM project activity categories. Specifically it covers:
A simplified baseline methodology and default factors for small-scale afforestation or reforestation project activities conducted over grasslands and croplands1
a simplified monitoring methodology based on appropriate statistical methods to estimate, measure and monitor the actual net greenhouse gas removals by sinks and leakage.
The methodologies outlined in the document have been designed to provide a simple, transparent, accurate and low-cost decision-making framework for small-scale A/R CDM project participants. As such, they encompass the most likely cases of prior land-use on lands to be used for small-scale A/R activities. Cases that are very specific have not been addressed by the present methodologies given that some could add complications, and that simplifications may not be possible. In accordance with decision 14/CP.10, Project participants can propose simplified methodologies for those cases not covered in the present document. Such methodologies will be subject to the consideration of the Executive Board.

Good Practice Guidance for Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry
The GPG-LULUCF assists countries in producing inventories for the land use, land-use change and forestry sector that are neither over- nor underestimates so far as can be judged, and in which uncertainties are reduced as far as practicable. It supports the development of inventories that are transparent, documented, consistent over time, complete, comparable, assessed for uncertainties, subject to quality control and quality assurance, and efficient in the use of resources... more

Definitions and Methodological Options to Inventory Emissions from Direct Human-induced Degradation of Forests and Devegatation of Other Vegetation Types
The report discusses: Alternative definitions and provides possible framework definitions for countries to consider; Methodological options to inventory emissions from degradation and devegetation activities; Approaches to reporting and documentation; and Implications of methodological and definitional options for accounting under the provisions of Article 3.4 of the Kyoto Protocol (including issues of scale, costs and accuracy).
Guidance on possible methodologies for estimation of greenhouse gas emissions or removals provided in this report draws substantively on the GPG-LULUCF.... more
