White Paper: Opportunities and challenges for integrating CBM into MRV systems for REDD+ in Mexico

This paper reviews the design of national REDD+ programmes to identify the opportunities and challenges for community-based forest monitoring. The implementation of REDD+ in Mexico is given as a practical example. It looks at possible strategies to integrate locally-collected data into the national Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system, and National Forest Monitoring System.
