Baselines and monitoring in local REDD+ projects

Baselines and monitoring in local REDD+ projects
Over the past few years, robust standards and methods have been developed to estimate emissions from deforestation at the project level.
Because the first full-fledged REDD+ baseline and monitoring methodologies were adopted only recently, many pioneering projects might not comply with them, running the risk of losing opportunities in carbon markets.
The next generation of projects should learn from this experience by identifying or developing suitable methodologies before investing in the development of their baselines and measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) systems.
