  1. ARWG toolsand consolidation of methodologies Igino Emmer EMMER INTERNATIONAAL

  2. Contents • “Modules” in methodologies • ARWG tools • consolidation EMMER INTERNATIONAAL

  3. Subjects/“Modules” in Methodologies • Miscellaneous • Relevance of carbon pools and emissions/removals * • Stratification • Identification of "degraded or degrading" land • Project boundaries ++ • Project emissions/removals • Emissions due to clearing and burning of existing vegetation * • Emissions from fossil fuel use in projects * • Emission of N2O due to N fertilisation * • Change in DOM due to the project *) Tool exists ++) Guidance provided EMMER INTERNATIONAAL

  4. Subjects/“Modules” in Methodologies – cont. • Baseline assessment • Assessing additionality * • Identifying the baseline scenario * • Removals by trees and shrubs in the baseline • Leakage • Leakage due to the displacement of pre-project activities * • Use of non-renewable wood (e.g. fencing) • Monitoring • Numbers of sample plots * *) Tool exists ++) Guidance provided EMMER INTERNATIONAAL

  5. ARWG tools - philosophy • Whenever relevant, first provide criteria for not considering an emission • Then provide guidance on how to quantify, including a possible simplified approach (default values) and an advanced approach • Partly taken from approved methodologies, partly out of the box EMMER INTERNATIONAAL

  6. ARWG tools (10) • Tool for the Demonstration and Assessment of Additionality in A/R CDM Project Activities ("Additionality tool") • Combined tool to identify the baseline scenario and demonstrate additionality in A/R CDM project activities ("Combined tool") • Procedures to demonstrate the eligibility of lands for afforestation and reforestation CDM project activities • Tool for testing significance of GHG emissions in A/R CDM project activities ("Significance tool") EMMER INTERNATIONAAL

  7. ARWG tools (10) – cont. • Estimation of emissions from clearing, burning and decay of existing vegetation due to implementation of a CDM A/R project activity ("Oxidation tool") • Estimation of GHG emissions related to fossil fuel combustion in A/R CDM project activities • Estimation of GHG emissions related to displacement of grazing activities in A/R CDM project activity ("Leakage tool") • Procedure to determine when accounting of the soil organic carbon pool may be conservatively neglected in CDM A/R project activities • Estimation of direct nitrous oxide emission from nitrogen fertilization • Calculation of the number of sample plots for measurements within A/R CDM project activities EMMER INTERNATIONAAL

  8. Discussion • Which additional tools are needed • Tools = modules? • What should consolidation achieve? EMMER INTERNATIONAAL
