Transparent monitoring in practice: supporting post-Paris land use sector mitigation
As of: May 2021
Transparent Monitoring (TM) can help developing countries to improve monitoring of land use emissions and better assess mitigation actions. The project develops guidance for TM, on how to implement open-source tools and open-access datasets and how to improve data access in four countries. In Côte d’Ivoire, the project develops guidance for assessing mitigation along cocoa supply chains to assist an effective and transparent accounting. In Ethiopia, its works towards integration of open-source tools, data and TM principles into the national MRV system to improve the assessment of biomass following land use change and participation of local communities. In Papua New Guinea, it analyses the adoption of open data, of data accessibility policies and the improvement in participation of indigenous peoples and local communities in MRV. In Peru, it develops guidance towards an interactive near-real time forest change monitoring system linked to a national incentive system for forest-related mitigation.
