Integrating CBM into MRV activities of projects financed by the Alliance in the Early Action Areas of REDD+ in Mexico (2013)

Consultancy report prepared for The Nature Conservancy (TNC).

This document presents a basic approach to community based monitoring (CBM) in the
Mexican setting of REDD+. The objective is to present firstly, a brief description of the
projects  being  implemented  in the  early  action  areas  (EAA)  financed  by the  Alliance
Mexico REDD+ (Alliance), secondly a proposal for the integration of CBM into the projects’
activities and finally a discussion of the potential linkages to the MRV system. The Alliance
is providing resources for the implementation of REDD+ activities in 13 projects located
within the EAA of Chihuahua, Yucatan Peninsula, Chiapas, Cutzamala Basin and Oaxaca.
These projects are implementing different activities to mitigate climate change including a
wide variety of actors, strategies and scopes. The creation of a comparable and consistent
system to monitor, report  and  verify the  outcomes  of  implementation  will  allow the
Alliance to evaluate the potential contribution of the projects to reduce carbon emissions
and increase carbon removals in the EAA as part of REDD+; moreover the information to
be produced can be compatible with national MRV systems and be integrated later into
the monitoring systems for REDD+.

Part of this work was presented in Warsaw during COP 19.
