VCS Approves Revision to REDD Methodology Modules

The Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) has approved revisions to two modules of the REDD Methodological Modules (VM0007).  The modules BL-UP: Estimation of baseline carbon stock changes and greenhouse gas emissions from unplanned deforestation (VMD0007), and X-UNC: Estimation of uncertainty for REDD project activities (VMD0017) were revised to improve the estimation of uncertainty in the baseline scenario.  VMD0007 was also revised to incorporate new approaches to baseline modeling. 

The revisions were developed by The Field Museum with the assistance of TerraCarbon, and were validated by Rainforest Alliance and SCS.  Click here for a link and further information on using the modules.
