REDD+ v2.0: New technologies for quantifcation of forest and collateral impacts on non-forest land.


Время и место


The success of REDD+ implementation will depend upon a robust MRV (Measuring, Reporting and Verifcation) and airborne LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) remote sensing is the key technology for this. NASA is leading the effort to build and deploy LiDAR sensors. IIASA will present a roadmap to reconcile REDD+ with unintended consequences for non-forest land-use, such as food security and water, and UCS will present how combining technical advances on MRV with economic incentives and political pressure has led to success in reducing Amazon deforestation.
