This report covers the technical assessment of the submission of Côte d’Ivoire, on a voluntary basis, on its proposed forest reference emission level (FREL), in accordance with decision 13/CP.19 and in the context of results-based payments. The FREL proposed by Côte d’Ivoire covers the activities “reducing emissions from deforestation” and “enhancement of forest carbon stocks”, which are two of the five activities included in decision 1/CP.16, paragraph 70. In its submission, Côte d’Ivoire has developed a national FREL. The FREL presented in the original submission, for the reference period 2000–2015, corresponds to 78,009,357 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per year (t CO2 eq/year). As a result of the facilitative process during the technical assessment, the FREL was modified to 38,052,641 t CO2 eq/year, which includes emissions of 41,403,705 t CO2 eq/year and removals of 3,351,065 t CO2 eq/year. The assessment team notes that the data and information used by Côte d’Ivoire in constructing its FREL are transparent, complete and in overall accordance with the guidelines contained in the annex to decision 12/CP.17. This report contains the assessed FREL and a few areas identified by the assessment team for future technical improvement, according to the scope of the technical assessment in the annex to decision 13/CP.19.
