Community-based monitoring, reporting and verification know-how: sharing knowledge from practice
In August 2014, participants from more than a dozen countries came together for a workshop in Guyana to share and test tools, approaches, and lessons learned on this work. The workshop was organized by the WWF Forest and Climate Programme, along with collaborators at WWF Guianas, the Global Canopy Programme, and the U.S. Geological Survey SilvaCarbon Program. This report highlights the impacts, challenges, lessons learned and trends that emerged from this workshop, and serves as a resource for others focused on similar efforts. It focuses on the different digital technology that are available to support community-based forest monitoring.
