USAID supported the work on MRV and on carbon management at the landscape scale in four countries: Burkina Faso, India, Indonesia and Peru.  The overall objective of this work was to support countries in their endeavours to implement REDD+ at the landscape scale.  

Specific objectives pursued [with USAID funding and complimented support from Norad, AusAID and the EU] include: 1) operationalized the stepwise approach adopted and made operational to set RELs and develop national MRV systems that take into account national circumstances, with respect to key drivers of deforestation, degradation, conservation, SMF and rehabilitation; 2) improved data availability and technical capacity in REDD+ host countries for emissions measurement; 3) developed possibilities for multiple streams of data including data generated through community participation in emissions inventories and have access to newly available data for accurately estimating carbon stocks and changes; 4) facilitated the adoption of low carbon emission policies at landscape and national scales; and 5) promoted the use of climate information at different temporal scales to ensure the sustainability of mitigation actions.
