Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) Manual for Improved Forest Management in Central Suau REDD+ area, Papua New Guinea
The purpose of this manual is to provide an overall review of the components that will be part of a Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system for REDD+. Monitoring systems that allow for credible measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of REDD+ activities are among the most critical elements for the successful implementation of any REDD+ mechanism. MRV systems cover, the carbon models and associated data, analysis and inputs, administrative processes, and the reporting processes.
The MRV Manual is the deliverable 4 of the project “Project Design Document Development for Forest Carbon Project (Logged – Protected Forest) in Central Suau”, financed by GIZ and developed by Österreichische Bundesforste AG (ÖBf) in close cooperation with Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA).
