Abstract: Uncertainty is an unavoidable attribute of practically any type of data including area and carbon stock estimates in the REDD context. Identification of the sources and quantification of the magnitude of uncertainty will help to better understand the contribution of each parameter to the overall accuracy and precision of the REDD estimates, and to prioritize efforts for their further development. Building on the IPCC Guidance, this section aims to provide some basic elements for a correct estimation on uncertainties. After a brief explanation of general concepts (Section 2.6.2), some key aspects linked to the quantification of uncertainties are illustrated for both area and carbon stocks (Section 2.6.3). The section concludes with the methods available for combining uncertainties (Section 2.6.4) and with the standard reporting and documentation requirements (Section 2.6.5).
