Carbon markets are crucial for meeting the commitments of zero emissions or carbon neutrality by 2050. However, they also pose significant environmental and social risks. How can we advance with the implementation of Carbon Markets and Article 6 in Latin America and the Caribbean?

*This webinar is part of a 5-series training aimed at practitioners and government officials to improve their capacity for gathering and collecting data on forest trade in the Lower Mekong region



Access to ‘near real time’ monitoring and monitoring illegal logging risks are among the top challenges highlighted by Lower Mekong countries in a recent online event on forest and forest trade data and monitoring in the region.

Participants highlighted the sustainability of information systems, integration across systems, improved data management, technical capacity building and law enforcement as priorities in addressing these challenges.

At the same time, improved access to ‘near real time’ data and tools, a growing range of global, regional and national data and platforms, and strengthened collaboration are offering opportunities to strengthen monitoring. These challenges and opportunities were captured at the first session in a series of capacity building events on forest and forest trade data and monitoring, organised by Lower Mekong Initiative.

This first session set the scene, introducing key challenges and opportunities that will be explored in more depth during the full series of events. The second session will examine options for strengthening country data, proxy data, and data sharing on forests and trade.
