<p>The information in the document corresponds to the situation in October 2014, for the most recent overview of UNFCCC FREL/FRL submissions please consult <a href="http://redd.unfccc.int/fact-sheets/forest-reference-emission-levels.html">this link.</a> </p> This document provides examples of emerging approaches to FREL/FRL development adopted in different contexts, including for demonstration activities by countries seeking to take actions to reduce GHG emissions or enhance forest carbon stocks in the forest sector. Analysis is provided on technical features in the early development of FREL/FRLs. The publication contains a list of country examples that is however not complete; not every country working on their FREL/FRL methodology is included in the analysis, which aims to be illustrative of the diversity of approaches taken rather than comprehensive. To date, one country has submitted a FREL under the UNFCCC which is why most examples are related to FREL/FRLs prepared for demonstration activities. The document will be regularly updated with additional information, including UNFCCC submissions of FREL/FRLs as they become available.
