    Objective:

    Community-based monitoring, reporting and verification (CMRV), is the involvement of local people in the monitoring, reporting and verification of carbon stocks and other forest data. This approach to forest monitoring can potentially provide cost-effective and locally collected biomass data, promote equality in benefit sharing, and maximize the social and environmental co-benefits of work around reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation, known as REDD+.
     

  • Chainsaw milling and Guyana's LCDS

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This document explains Guyana's low carbon development strategy. More specifically, it details how it has found an effective "middle path" between unbridled development at the expense of the natural environment on the one hand and passive conservationism at the expense of economic growth on the other. The example held up in this paper is that of chainsaw milling which is allowed by policy in Guyana. It is supported by an institutional framework that permits and regulates its use.
