National Land Monitoring and Information System for a transparent NDC reporting
As of: June 2019
Objective and activities
The project supports the reduction of emissions from deforestation (REDD+) in 22 partner countries (including 16 countries from the previous project 13_III_044_Global_M_National forest monitoring). To this end, it promotes the exchange of experience, knowledge transfer and the development of skills with regard to the application of a newly developed and used software tool for forest monitoring in cooperation with Google Outreach through the training of approx. 400 experts. The software extends the monitoring systems of the target countries. In this way, they can improve monitoring of NDC and REDD+ measures and reporting on GHGs and their reduction. Furthermore, the monitoring system provides an important basis for the implementation of all REDD+ instruments (such as the development of reference levels) and the preparation of reports (BURs) to the UNFCCC. Another new software (Earth Map) for land and restoration monitoring is also being developed by the project.
