Communities

Welcome

The MRV Community of Practice is made up of REDD+ practitioners from around the globe focused on monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV). This community of practice offers users the latest information and resources on MRV covering technical, political and financial issues related to REDD+ implementation, including inspiring practices for MRV design and implementation. Members share their knowledge and learn from each other to build their MRV capacity to deliver REDD+ with impact in ways that benefit people and nature.

You are invited to become an active participant of this community of practice, and to explore the content available through the links on this page.
