    Abstract Muyong is one of the indigenous forest management practices of the Ifugaos that play a crucial role in the watersheds of the Ifugao rice terraces and supplementary food source. This study attempts to assess the feasibility of implementing a REDD+ in the Nagacadan rice terrace cluster of the Ifugao Rice Terraces. A carbon study was conducted by measuring four different carbon pools of the local forests: the forest carbon stock, non-tree vegetation, forest floor litter layer, and soil carbon at 10 cm depth. A qualitative assessment was also carried out in order to assess the potential for REDD+ implementation in the area through focus group discussion and key informant interviews.
