Updated: Feb 10

Afforestation, Reforestation and Revegetation (ARR) projects include human-induced direct and indirect activities (e.g. planting, seeding) to: (1) convert non-forested land to forested; or (2) convert forested land that has not been forested for at least 50 years to become forested again; or (3) enhance carbon stocks of biomass that does not meet the definitions of afforestation and reforestation.

Agricultural Land Management (ALM) projects include changes to agricultural practices, grassland and rangeland restorations, soil carbon protection and accrual benefits from reductions in erosion, grassland protection projects and treatments designed to improve diversity and productivity of grassland and savanna plant communities.

Improved Forest Management (IFM) projects include forest management activities which result in increased carbon stocks within forests and/or reduce GHG emissions from forestry activities when compared to business as usual forestry practices.

Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) projects to create a financial value for the carbon stored in forests, offering incentives for developing countries to reduce emissions from forested lands and invest in low-carbon paths to sustainable development.

Avoided Conversion of Grasslands and Shrublands (ACoGS) projects that using methodology to estimates avoided GHG emissions from preventing conversion of grasslands and shrublands to commodity crop production.

Wetlands Restoration and Conservation (WRC) projects include activities that restore tidal wetlands (a subset of wetlands under the influence of the wetting and drying cycles of the tides, e.g., marshes, seagrass meadows, tidal forested wetlands, and mangroves), including ARR activities that also consider GHG emission reductions other than carbon.
