The project scenario may involve land-use change from the baseline or the land use may remain unchanged, with land remaining in the same category as that in the baseline, but with improved managed system, which will have implications for carbon inventory and methods to be adopted for carbon stock estimation.
• Land remaining in the same category The project scenario will involve no change in the land-use compared to the baseline; however, the project activity may improve land management or prevent the expected change in land use.
° Avoided deforestation where forest land of the baseline scenario would remain as forest land in the project scenario. ° Improved grassland management the land use and the land cover may remain the same in the project scenario as in the baseline, but with improved management system.
• Land converted to another category The project scenario will involve change in land use or land cover in the project scenario as a result of project activities.
° Afforestation Grassland converted to short-rotation forest plantations in the project scenario. ° Agroforestry Cropland converted to agroforestry.
