Joint GCF Fund-GCF Training Program Workshop: Improving MRV Capacities

The objective of the workshop is to share lessons learned from the first round of GCF Fund projects, discuss deliverables, and make concrete recommendations for moving jurisdictional forest monitoring programs forward. As the workshop will be held in California, GCF tropical forest members will also have the opportunity to explore emerging market opportunities with the California AB 32 cap and trade program and associated jurisdictional MRV requirements. The workshop will focus both on the technical and political aspects of forest measurement and monitoring, as well as ongoing opportunities and challenges for developing robust jurisdictional REDD+ programs. Topics which will be discussed in depth include:

  • Integrating local communities as vital actors in forest measurement and monitoring systems
  • Aligning sub-national and national forest measurement and monitoring systems
  • Data sharing between different levels of governance
  • Data management platforms and their applications in sub-national forest measurement and monitoring
  • Key gap areas in sub-national jurisdictional REDD+ programs (Winrock Assessment)
  • Advances in remote sensing design and processing
  • AB 32 requirements and future opportunities for GCF members
