Indigenous people's view: community monitoring and REDD+ benefits beyond carbon

Forest COMPASS interviewed various members of the international indigenous peoples' organisation, Tetebba,  to understand their proirities relating to community based forest monitoring, including within REDD+ schemes. The interviewees make the case that indigenous people and forest-dependent communities have the knowledge, skills, on-the-ground presence, and the right to do their own monitoring - this includes setting a broad range of indicators. The interviews took place at the end of 2014, at the UNFCCC SBSTA-40 meeting, in the run up to the UNFCCC CoP in Lima.
