An Assessment of National Forest Monitoring Capabilities in Tropical Non-Annex I Countries, a report by GOFC-GOLD

The objective of this report was to specify and scope, for 99 tropical non-Annex I countries, the near term capacity development activities that would be required to implement an accurate forest area change and carbon monitoring system.  The focus is on actions that can be taken over the next five years to prepare for participation in a future REDD-mechanism under the UNFCCC.

As such, the report provides relevant input and recommendations for MRV-activities and investments in REDD-preparatory processes, such as UNREDD and the FCPF.

The report has been co-sponsored by the Prince's Rainforest Project and the Government of Norway's International Forest and Climate Initiative.
