  • More than measures: A comprehensive national systems approach that includes Measurements, Reporting and Verification (MRV) in a regulatory and policy framework Fred Stolle, Forest Team, World Resources Institute Forest Day, Copenhagen, Denmark, December 2009
  • Copenhagen REDD TEXT Reduced Emissions From Deforestation in Developing Countries: Approaches to Stimulate Action Decision /CP 13
  • What is MRV ? M = deforestation x emission Thus need good measurements in both R = implies - Systematic - Standards - Timely - Transparent V =Recognized, approved by international community
  • Forest activities covered by REDD - Deforestation - Degradation - Forest conservation - Sustainable forest Management - Enhancement of carbon stocks
  • What MRV has to take into account too the needs of local and indigenous communities should be addressed when action is taken to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries,
  • Voices from the Congo basin: Incorporating the perspective of local stakeholders for Improved REDD design
  • M ….Remote sensing - What can we actually Measure - Deforestation:
  • M ….Remote sensing
  • General Definitions Marrakech Accords: • Forest area: 0.05 to 1 ha • Potential to reach a minimum height at maturity in situ of 2-5 m • Tree crown cover (or equivalent stocking level): 10 to 30 %.
  • M ….Remote sensing - What can we actually Measure - Deforestation: - YES - as by UNFCCC definition? - 0.05 ha - ?????
  • DEFORESTATION ? LULUCF rules: Forest Management So NO this is Temporary unstocked
  • DEFORESTATION ? REDD rules: Forestmisuse of definition Possible definition So YES this is Deforestation
  • Forest activities covered by REDD - Deforestation - Degradation - Forest conservation - Sustainable forest Management - Enhancement of carbon stocks
  • Degradation Small-holder uses Industrial logging
  • M ….Remote sensing - NO Definition - How to make Baseline ? - Baseline for SFM ?
  • M ….Remote sensing In the UNFCCC context the “art” of remote sensing is not to detect deforestation… It is a regulating framework
  • M- monitoring Not a one off map Butsystematic annual delivery of reliable, accurate deforestation numbers
  • Information Delivered to Decisions makers.. There is money attached to numbers
  • Integrated into planning and Governance
  • Core Message REDD will be a regulating framework with binding legal status. It is NOT only for Remote Sensing/ Geographer geeks
  • Conclusion The MRV should be out of the researcher frame. Need Long term thinking integrated in policy framework Integrated in Planning and Governance
