Meeting of Remote Sensing Task Force for FRA 2010

30 March - 3 April 2009

Danilo Mollicone, FAO UN-REDD Programme


Origin of UN-REDD

  • In response to:
  • UNFCCC Decision in Bali 2/CP.13
  • Requests from governments in the Coalition for Rainforest Nations
  • Requests from other governments – and UN Secretary General -- for joint UN action – “Delivering as One UN”
un redd programme key principles
UN-REDD Programme Key Principles

Institution strengthening, capacity building and local action

Stakeholder participation

Measurement, assessment, reporting & verification

Coordinated response

Country-driven UN joint programmes – “Delivering as One"

Contribution to UNFCCC process

un redd programme objective
UN-REDD Programme: Objective

Help REDD see the light of day…

equitable, effective, efficient!

Governance structure

Quick Start:

Country actions (9 countries)

Partnership with other countries

Global Joint Programme

$52m contributed by Norway for initial phase

Implementation phase

2012 and beyond

global joint programme
Global Joint Programme
  • Measurement, Assessment, Reporting & Verification (MARV)
  • Civil Society Organizations / Indigenous Peoples engagement
  • Multiple Benefits
  • UN-coordination, knowledge management and outreach

Coordination with other initiatives

  • GEF
  • World Bank FCPF* and FIP
  • Bilateral programmes
  • Other CPF members



Global Joint Programme: MARV

  • Data support
  • National monitoring systems
  • Training
  • Independent review system

MARV: Data support

  • - Collaboration with GEOSS-GEO* on free RS data distribution
  • Continuous submission of data to IPCC EFDB**
  • (Emission Factor Database) for default values




MARV: National monitoring systems

  • Report* on the implementation of LULUCF Guidance and AFOLU Guidelines in non-Annex I Countries to meet UNFCCC reporting requirements and principles:
    • Inventories should be transparent, consistent, comparable, complete and accurate
    • +
    • principle of conservativeness

*To be delivered by Copenhagen 2009 and complementary to Gofc-Gold REDD Sourcebook on national monitoring systems


MARV: National monitoring systems

  • Guidelines* on National Forest Inventory to assess carbon stock and carbon stock changes:
    • compliance with IPCC AFOLU 2006 Guidelines
    • analysis on sampling design
    • analysis on plot design
    • identifying and quantifying uncertainties
    • operational implementation (e.g. continuous NFI)
    • etc…

*To be delivered by Copenhagen 2009


On NFI Sampling design

  • Stratification increases efficiency in two main ways:
  • by improving the accuracy of the estimate for the entire population;
  • by ensuring that adequate results are obtained for certain subpopulations, e.g., for certain forest types. (IPCC GPG)
  • Generally (but this will highly depend on national circumstances) forest land will be further stratified on the basis of biophysical characteristics and land-use practices in order to create more homogeneous spatial units and the intensity of field plots within a stratum will be fixed in relation to a chosen probability level and allowable sampling error (e.g. Malaysia).

On NFI Sampling design

third forest stratification level based on forest land-use practices.

Over time strata may change to follow land use processes

Forest land

Lowland forest





On plot design

FAO-NFMA ITTO rev new concepts

Sweep sample point

100 m

Different plot design will be evaluated and NFI may contain different plot design (e.g. Mexico)


MARV: training

  • Series of technical workshops (e.g. Forest and GHGs Inventory, forest area assessment, SFM, REL & RL, etc.) in collaboration with CfRN, GTZ, GEF, WB, INPE, ICFRE, etc.
  • FAO in house capacity (e.g. FRA, FRA-RSS, NFMA, etc)
  • Collaboration with Brazilian INPE on RS (Prodes, Deter, Detex, Degrad, TerraAmazon)
  • Collaboration with INDIAN Council of Forestry Research and Education (ICFRE) on RS and forest inventory ?
  • GHGs national inventory with EPA, GTZ, EC, etc..

MARV: Independent review system

  • Institution of joint Roster of Expert under UN-REDD and FCPF
  • Support to UNFCCC Roster of Expert (new experts from FAO)
  • Independent review of each country REDD national monitoring and reporting systems
