Credible baseline setting and accurate and transparent Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of results are key conditions for successful REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation) projects, and there are various international standards to which REDD projects must comply. In this presentation, CIFOR scientist Manuel Estrada gives an overview of international standards and methods for MRV and REDD.
Manuel Estrada 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.
