PUBLICATION: Afforestation and Reforestation Projects under the Clean Development Mechanism
The UNFCCC secretariat has recently published the Afforestation and Reforestation Projects under the Clean Development Mechanism - A Reference Manual.
This manual aims to assist stakeholders in developing afforestation and reforestation (A/R) projects under the clean development mechanism (CDM).
It synthesizes the requirements with respect to the project cycle, project documentation, project validation and registration, and monitoring and verification of A/R project activities. The manual is also intended to serve as a reference guide as it brings together in one place the rules and regulations applicable to CDM A/R projects and integrates the procedural, methodological and technical aspects of those projects.
This manual is not only a reference tool, but also an accessible guide for readers who are not familiar with the rules and regulations of the CDM, and wish to learn about it. The manual is complete and therefore can also be used as resource material in training and capacity?building activities.
