Measurement, reporting and verification for REDD+: Objectives, capacities and institutions

Measurement, reporting and verification for REDD+: Objectives, capacities and institutions
Participation in REDD+ requires much more emphasis on measuring, reporting and verifying (MRV) than has been the case in most national forest monitoring to date.
Roadmaps to build and sustain capacity for measuring, reporting and verifying national REDD+ implementation according to national and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) requirements and principles must be effective, efficient ansd equitable.

Without clear links between REDD+ MRV and policy from the outset, REDD+ compensation schemes that are based on results will be ineffective.
