The Rainforest Foundation Norway (RFN) has commissioned CICERO to do a project on the carbon effects of two REDD+ projects as a literature study. The two sites are found in Indonesia and Colombia. We have assessed carbon densities and carbon stocks. Further, we have assessed how different hypothetical storylines could lead to different CO2 emissions at the two sites. The last part of the report is an assessment and proposal of methods that RFN can utilize to quantify the greenhouse gas effects of future projects. We have based our carbon stock and potential carbon emission estimates on datasets from Global Forest Watch
