Technical Guidance Series: Framework Document



The Lowering Emissions in Asia's Forests Programme (LEAF) website includes a variety of resources and tools related to technical capacity building focused on REDD+, climate change mitigation, gender mainstreaming, and policy and market incentives for improved forest management and land-use planning in Asia.

The purpose of this framework document is to outline the individual steps and technical components that together form the overall technical framework of carbon accounting for the NFMS implementation and RL/REL development.  From this framework, users may identify specific modules that are most relevant to their responsibilities and area of expertise. This document is directed at national to regional government technical staff and partners assigned to the design and implementation of the technical components of national and subnational REDD+ programs.  The document is also designed to provide technical guidance to potential project developers and implementers of REDD+ interventions.

This is part of a Technical Guidance Series for the implementation of National Forest Monitoring Systems and REL/RL development for REDD+, developed by LEAF.
