New guidance on Forest Reference Emission Levels and Forest Reference Levels

MGD authors have published a rapid response module on Forest Reference Emissions Levels / Forest Reference Levels (FREL/FRL). This module extends the advice on technical issues associated with FREL/FRLs provided in sections 1.1 to 1.4 and section 5 of version 1 of the MGD and specifically addresses methodological issues associated with the construction of FREL/FRL benchmarks for assessing Parties’ performances in implementing REDD+ activities, including discussing the meaning of technical terms used in COP decisions.
