RULE CLARIFICATION:

APPLICABILITY OF LAND USE & FORESTS (LUF) ACTIVITY REQUIREMENTS, ANNEX B “REQUIREMENTS FOR A/R SMALLHOLDER & MICROSCALE PROJECTS” (RC 2020 AR – LUF V1.2)

Publication date: 02/04/2020

1.            Background

Annex B of LUF Activity Requirements  provide simplified requirements for Smallholder and Microscale projects seeking Gold Standard certified statements and or products such as Gold Standard Verified Emission Reductions (VERs). Annex B outlines requirements that are modified, simplified or waived for Smallholder and Microscale projects. The title of Annex B is misleading and appears as it is only applicable to A/R Smallholder & Microscale projects.

 

2.            Rule Clarification

This rule clarification confirms that Annex B “Requirements for A/R smallholder & microscale projects” apply to all eligible LUF projects including Afforestation & Reforestation Projects (A/R) and Agriculture Projects (AGR). The title of Annex B, LUF Activity Requirements, has been amended to reflect this.
