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.

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

2. PES can play a role in reducing deforestation and forest degradation. This has already been demonstrated by PES schemes in many developing countries in the hydropower, water supply, and wildlife conservation and tourism sectors.

3. PES and REDD+ have similar goals to enhance ecosystem services by rewarding/incentivizing forest owners or managers. The design of the REDD+ implementation strategy can benefit from the existing experiences of PES schemes being implemented and legal frameworks in place that provided incentive for improving ecosystem services.

4. Countries can develop robust systems and procedures for linking international REDD payments with domestic PES payments.

5. Performance-based payments, such as PES, can be an important element of national and sub-national REDD mechanisms. However, certain economic, technical, institutional, cultural, and political conditions should be met for making PES an effective instrument for REDD+
