What is forest reference emission levels (FREL) for wetlands?

AUTHOR Center for International Forestry Research
There’s still little research on wetlands and their emission-stashing capacities compared to many other forest ecosystems. Knowledge and information on a more accurate picture of wetlands’ contribution is needed. Since 2019, CIFOR has been conducting research on improving the transparency, accuracy, completeness, consistency, and comparability of Forest Reference Emission Level (FREL) particularly in wetland ecosystems.
