Sourcebook on Monitoring Biodiversity for REDD+

The Sourcebook published by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) in collaboration with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH seeks to bring clarity to the challenge of monitoring biodiversity for REDD+ while acknowledging the need to avoid adding further complexity. The Sourcebook emphasises a phased approach to monitoring based on availability of resources, and highlights that monitoring biodiversity as part of REDD+ can help countries to achieve both their biodiversity and climate commitments more cost-effectively. Contributing to the goal of achieving multiple benefits through REDD+, the Sourcebook seeks to answer three key questions: Why monitor biodiversity for REDD+? What to monitor? How to monitor? Drawing on the literature and contributions from a wide range of experts, the Sourcebook provides a simple framework for answering these questions. Summaries of key monitoring methods are presented with best practice guidance and practical case studies drawn from REDD+ and forest projects around the world.
