Explanation:
5.3.3. Leakage
Leakage is defined as the unanticipated decrease or increase in GHG benefits outside of the project's accounting boundary (the boundary defined for the purposes of estimating the project's net GHG impact) as a result of project activities. For example, conserving forests that otherwise would have been deforested for agricultural land may displace farmers to an area outside of the project's boundaries. There, the displaced farmers may engage in deforestation-and the resulting carbon emissions are referred to as leakage.

Projects may also yield greater GHG benefits than anticipated-positive leakage or "spillover." For example, if a project introduced a new land management approach or technology-such as increased use of agroforestry or cover crops or increased saw mill efficiency-and this technology was more widely adopted outside the project's boundaries, the net GHG benefits would be larger than initially estimated.

"Estos datos fueron importantes para preparar el primer inventario de Belice para determinar las fuentes y fugas de carbono utilizadas en las primeras comunicaciones nacionales."

"Ello significa que antes de que se conviertan en "sumideros de carbono" en realidad provocarán "fugas de carbono" (para usar el oscuro lenguaje de los negociadores sobre el clima). "
