Description: The methodology is for estimating and monitoring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of
project activities that reduce mosaic deforestation. Carbon stock enhancement of degraded and
secondary forests that would be deforested in absence of the RED project activity is also included in this
methodology. The underlying conceptual approach of this methodology is based on drafts of the AFOLU
Guidance Document of the Voluntary Carbon Standard. The methodologies is currently being used by a
number of projects around the world, including the Madagascar Ankeniheny-Zahamena Corridor Project.
