VCS today released for public comment draft requirements for the integrated, jurisdiction-wide crediting of activities that Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation and enhance forest carbon stocks (REDD+).

 

The draft Jurisdictional and Nested REDD+ (JNR) requirements set out the first global framework for the accounting and crediting of REDD+ activities across multiple levels, recognizing emissions reductions from policies and programs as well as projects “nested” within states, provinces or nations. Comments may be submitted by 2 July 2012.
