Methods and Guidance Modules

GFOI is producing a series of modules to support users of the Methods and Guidance Document by providing timely updates on current themes. So far three modules have been published. These cover the relationship between the MGD and the GOFC-GOLD sourcebook (June 2014), the use of global datasets in national forest monitoring, such as those published by Global Forest Watch (March 2015); and forest reference emission levels and forest reference levels (July 2015). Like the MGD itself, all these modules are designed to be consistent with IPCC greenhouse gas inventory methods and decisions of the UNFCCC Conference of Parties on REDD+ and to provide operational advice on how to develop emissions and removals estimates associated with REDD+ activities including on the meaning of technical terms. The first three modules are available here.
