Credible baseline setting and accurate and transparent Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of results are key conditions for successful REDD+ projects. In this presentation, Juan Felipe Villegas from Carbon Decisions International discusses the ‘jurisdictional nested approach’, how it will affect distribution of international incentives for REDD+, and how it can be used to create a framework of baseline emissions levels from deforestation at many scales, with sub-national regions in Guatemala and Peru as examples.
Juan Felipe gave this presentation on 9 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.
