Report and Summary of a Workshop and Consultation held on "Preparing Guyana's REDD+ participation: Developing capacities for monitoring, reporting and verification"

The Government of Guyana has embarked on a national programme that aims to protect and maintain its forests in an effort to reduce global carbon emissions and at the same time attract resources to foster growth and development along a low carbon emissions path. The cooperation between the Governments of Norway and Guyana expresses a willingness to work together to provide the world with a relevant, replicable model for how REDD+ can align the development objectives of forest countries with the world\'s need to combat climate change. The initiative will require the development of capacities for MRV of forest carbon stocks and changes. A workshop of 90 national experts and stakeholders, and a series of consultations with relevant agencies were conducted during 27–29 October 2009 in efforts to prepare Guyana\'s participation in REDD+ mechanisms. The workshop and the consultations produced significant progress to provide the foundations for developing the capacities for a REDD MRV system for Guyana. The results of this progress are contained in the following report.

Terms of Reference for Developing Capacities for a National Monitoring, Reporting and Verification System to support REDD+ participation of Guyana

The Government of Guyana has embarked on a national programme that aims to protect and maintain its forests in an effort to reduce global carbon emissions and at the same time attract resources to foster growth and development along a low carbon emissions path. The cooperation between the Governments of Norway and Guyana expresses a willingness to work together to provide the world with a relevant, replicable model for how REDD+ can align the development objectives of forest countries with the world's need to combat climate change. The initiative will require the development of capacities for MRV of forest carbon stocks and changes. As an initial step to the implementation of a MRV system for Guyana, a road map for the development of a MRV system for REDD+ participation for Guyana was designed, following a stakeholder participation session. The development of such a road map considered several aspects that were elaborated in a facilitation process and used in the preparation of Terms of Reference for developing a REDD MRV system.
