MRV in Tanzania

Following the latest UN-REDD Programme workshop on monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) in Tanzania, coordination of MRV activities is currently underway in the country.

Tanzania’s MRV progress is a good example of how integration between local institutional actors, global initiatives and donors can yield promising results. Following a first mapping of the country’s actors and activities in MRV, a consultation on behalf of the Tanzanian government was carried-out to streamline respective MRV work plans. This harmonization will avoid duplication and will create synergies in all the MRV initiatives happening in Tanzania to enhance the MRV framework between all existing and ongoing initiatives.

Tanzania’s programme has successfully managed to get an update for sub-national as well as national REDD+ initiatives throughout the country. FAO is supporting the creation of a robust team on MRV to work with Tanzania’s UN-REDD Project Coordinator. The objective is to lead the implementation process to develop strong monitoring and reporting systems. The work will include linkages between the UN-REDD Programme and the National Forest Inventory (NAFORMA) for Tanzania, with the strong technical backing of the MRV Team at FAO headquarters in Rome.
