National Forest Monitoring and Information Systems for a transparent and truthful REDD+

Developer or Source: National Government Entity

This South-South cooperation project is supporting the process of reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) in 18 partner countries. To this end, it is promoting knowledge transfer, capacity building and the exchange of experience and ideas in the context of implementing a software tool for forest monitoring that has been newly developed and deployed by the Brazilian Government. The software uses remote sensing technology and geoinformation systems to extend the target countries’ monitoring systems. This allows them to better monitor REDD+ activities, as well as improving the reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and their reduction. The purpose of the monitoring system is also to lay the foundations for achieving all REDD+ provisions (such as the development of reference levels) and ensuring stakeholder participation and transparency in the implementation of REDD+ measures.
