REDD+ Readiness: Early Insights on Monitoring, Reporting and Verification Systems of Project Developers
This new study discovered that only half of their sampled REDD+ projects have the capacity to adequately monitor, report and verify (MRV) emissions. The study sampled 20 REDD+ projects in Brazil, Peru, Cameroon, Tanzania, Indonesia and Vietnam. Readiness was calculated through questionnaires, field visits and regional workshops examining the projects’ remote sensing capacity, carbon pool inventory and baseline, intervention and monitoring readiness. Brazil and Peru projects showed higher readiness than the other countries.
