CIFOR–ICRAF publishes over 750 publications every year on agroforestry, forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy and much more – in multiple languages.

CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests, landscapes, people and the planet.

We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

Forests, People, and the rest of the world: local participation in REDD+ Measuring, Reporting and Verification (PMRV)

Community participation has been promoted as a way to empower local communities in REDD+ programs. A particular goal is that they would monitor forest change and measure carbon stocks, and thus reduce the costs of such assessments. So far, little empirical evidence shows that participatory measurement, reporting and verification (PMRV) is feasible. We present the main findings from a series of multidisciplinary studies published in a collection of PLOS ONE, investigating the feasibility of local participation into MRV in Indonesia, Ethiopia, Mexico and China.
