Proceedings of the International Workshop on Monitoring Forest Degradation in Southeast Asia
This presentation was given by Roy Banka, LEAF PNG's REDD+ Coordinator, at the PNG University of Technology in Lae.
This brief was created as an outcome from the Reduced-Impact Logging: Challenges, Opportunities and Strategies in the Emerging Forest Carbon Economy workshop, held in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia in May 2012.

This presentation was delivered by Elizabeth Philip at the National Forest Inventory (NFI-5) capacity building training in Sandakan, Sabah, Malaysia from May 20-23rd, 2013.
This presentation covers: requirements for REDD+ implementation, REDD+ in Malaysia, progress at the national level, deforestation and forest degradation, and MRVs.

ABSTRACT: There is general consensus that carbon (C) sequestration projects in forests are a relatively low cost option for mitigating climate change, but most studies on the subject have assumed that transaction costs are negligible.
Engaging in REDD+ and seeking to take part in the opportunities and benefits of REDD+ requires credible scientifically-based estimates of emissions and removals of greenhouse gases from human-induced activities that change the cover and use of forest lands. This means data have to be collected on the extent of areas affected by human-induced activities that promote land cover change.

These materials are from the LEAF-USFS Low Emission Land use and forest planning in Southeast Asia Workshop, held in Bangkok from July 3-5, 2012.
This final national report from ASB covers emerging international agreements to reduce emissions from land use, economic developments and implications for REDD leakages, drivers of deforestation and degradation and the potential impact on emission, and rights, resource access and tenure within Vietnamese context.
This policy report from IGES on MRV ("Measurement / Monitoring" "Reporting" "Verification") explores the understanding of MRV as a series of processes to quantify GHG emissions, and looks at changes through sixteen case studies on MRV schemes being implemented on the ground throughout eight countries in the Asia-Pacific
