  1. Institutional REDD+ MRV framework Workshop for developing a roadmap for an Ethiopian national REDD+ MRV framework

  2. Institutional framework • A strong institutional set up and the establishment and maintenance of partnership and cooperation on all levels as enabling framework • Coordination and integration of national datasets through a high-level national technical committee accompanied and development of a national data management system and infrastructure • Sustain internal and national communicationmechanisms • A framework for involving all relevant national stakeholders involved in MRV and REDD implementation and mechanisms to ensure transparent and open exchange and management of data streams • Need for engagement with local and international community • Clarity on roles and responsibilities

  3. Institutional framework REDD+ MRV: components • MRV coordination / links to REDD+ policy/implementation • National data management infrastructure • NFM/MRV monitoring – remote sensing • NFM/MRV monitoring – forest inventories • NFM/MRV analysis and estimation • REDD+ international reporting (IPCC) • NFM/MRV local-national interaction • NFM/MRV training – capacity building • NFM/MRV research – continuous improvements • Define roles and responsibilities!

  4. REDD+ MRV coordination component A high-level national coordination and cooperation REDD+ MRV unit could: • Link forest carbon MRV system to the national policy for REDD+ • Specify and oversee roles, responsibilities and co-benefits, and other monitoring efforts • Coordinate national datasets, national data infrastructure • Engage local level and integrate local data streams (quality control, consistency) • Coordinate MRV components • National REDD+ reporting

  5. Relevant organisations for MRV ( ... R-PP)

  6. Relevant organisations for MRV (R-PP)

  7. Involving the local level • REDD+ is a national process (policy and performance) but needs to work on the local level • In many countries, national level REDD+ implementation & monitoring benefits from direct engagement of local actors and community • For Ethiopia: • Participatory forest monitoring framework • Several local REDD+ related studies (data, experiences, capacities) • Need for demonstration activities • Develop local >< national integration as win-win situation

  8. Community-based monitoring Local experts / communities can provide important data streams: • Signalling forest change and human activity • Forest inventory measurements • Revisit time and long-term monitoring • As independent data sources

  9. Issues of Community-based monitoring • Importance varies depending on national priorities • Data issues: • Spatially constraint (local!) • Data quality • Data credibility • Data consistency • Requires validation and quality control • Need to develop synergy among national and community based monitoring

  10. International reporting National-level MRV • REDD+ participation and safeguards • Local data collection as input to national monitoring (forest inventory, regular and near-real time tracking of forest change events) • Performance reporting (long-term) for local implementation activities • Independent data sources for validation purposes • National priorities and strategies for local REDD+ implementation • National datasets and streams for local use • Capacity development and revenue stream (for MRV) • MRV guidance & standards • National data infrastructure and quality control of local measurements • Monitoring of leakage Local & community-based monitoring

  11. Higher education and research institutes • NFM/MRV is in hand of mandated governmental institutions • Organizations, universities and research centers • Conduct/support research on key issues to fill data and knowledge gaps • Main driver for continuous improvement in NFM/MRV • Long-term role in capacity building and training • Framework for participation, scientific advice and (inter)national partnering (e.g. through technical and scientific advisory group)

  12. Session 10: Breakout groupsInstitutions and stakeholders • National institutional framework for REDD+ MRV • Strategies for community and local participation • Involvement of higher education and research institutes

  13. 1. Institutional framework MRV Objective: develop institutional framework for MRV and steps to achieve this. With specific focus on: • Clarify roles and responsibilities for different REDD+ MRV components • REDD+ MRV coordination and cooperation mechanism • National data management system and infrastructure • Involvement of relevant stakeholders in MRV and REDD implementation, with consideration of multi-sector (drivers!) partnerships and engagement with local and international community

  14. 2. Strategies for community participation Objective: explore how, when and where to involve local experts/expertise in NFM/MRV activities: discuss the role, opportunities mechanisms of local actors in REDD and MRV and defined capacity development needs and next steps

  15. 3. Involvement of higher education and research institutes Objective: discuss how to involve and support research org. on key issues, and how to build long-term partnerships/research priorities with research/training organizations: • Define role of higher education and research institutions in REDD+ monitoring, capacity building and continuous improvements • Thematic foci and areas of engagements • Identify relevant organizations and research partners • Outline priorities and next steps to take
