A half-day workshop on the implementation of REDD+ Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) in Ethiopia

In 2009, CIFOR started a multi-donor funded Global Comparative Study on REDD+ (GCS-REDD+) in 12 countries, one of them being Ethiopia. This workshop is part of the 3rd phase of this long-term research project, with funding from Norad. The aim of this workshop is to contribute to GCS module on monitoring and reference levels to improve procedures and practices for estimating and managing carbon stocks of tropical forest landscapes, and to use the data actively in REL setting, evaluating performance, and identifying hotspots and mitigation actions. Our objective is to provide a synthesis that assesses the level of implementation of MRV at the national level in Ethiopia. To do so, we want to collect information from key stakeholders regarding MRV implementation and challenges in the country, the gaps and points to be improved, and how it contributes to Ethiopia’s CRGE and NDC.

Information on MRV implementation and sustainability not available in official reports and other media, feedback on the gaps and challenges facing organisations (government, CSO) implementing MRV, recommendations on how to improve the current system.
