ARD

ARD: Afforestation, Reforestation, Deforestation - a mechanism under the Kyoto Protocol for developed countries to gain carbon credits from forest management . The term "ARD land" is used in the Kyoto Protocoll, for simplicity, to define areas on which ARD activities have occurred since 1990 and for which carbon stock changes are to be calculated. Key to the identification of ARD lands under Article 3.3 is the definition of a forest coupled with definitions of afforestation, reforestation, and deforestation. The individual definitions of these terms addressed in Sections 2.2.2 and 2.2.3 provide a basis for the discussion in this chapter.
