This working paper summarizes the situational analysis of upstream, mid-stream and downstream areas of Teesta subbasin of greater Brahmaputra basin
Year: 2017

Background

The reliable monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of carbon emissions and removals from the forest sector is an important part of the efforts on reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+)

Results

The use of very-high-resolution satellite-based tree cover parameters, including crown projected area (CPA), crown density and crown size classes improves salience, reliability and legitimacy of the community-based survey of 0.04% intensity at the lower cost than increasing intensity of the community-based survey to 0.14% level (2.5 USD/ha vs. 7.5 USD/ha).

Conclusion

The proposed REDD+ MRV complementary system is the first of its kind and demonstrates the enhancement of information content, accuracy of reporting and reduction in cost. It also allows assessment of the efficacy of community-based forest management and extension to national scale.

Key messages

1

2. Appropriate approaches (and adaptation) for implementing REDD+ activities are key to optimum outcomes for biodiversity, carbon, and other ecosystem service benefits.

3. Community forestry can provide an opportunity for REDD+ strategies to enhance biodiversity conservation and ecosystem-based adaptation measures while simultaneously mitigating carbon dioxide.

4. Emerging knowledge on interactions among biodiversity, carbon, and human activities is essential to inform management and policy decisions
