Credible baseline setting and accurate and transparent Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of results are key conditions for the success of REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation). In this presentation, Britaldo Silveira Soares Filho from Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais discusses the challenges inherent in setting baselines and applying modelling for REDD.
Britaldo Silveira Soares Filho gave this presentation on 8 March 2012 at a workshop organised by CIFOR, ‘Measurement, Reporting and Verification in Latin American REDD+ Projects’, held in Petropolis, Brazil. The workshop aimed to explore important advances, challenges, pitfalls, and innovations in REDD+ methods — thereby moving towards overcoming barriers to meeting MRV requirements at REDD+ project sites in two of the Amazon’s most important REDD+ candidate countries, Peru and Brazil.
