Monitoring social and biodiversity impacts of REDD

We seldom cover topics on REDD here at Climate-Eval for its unique and complex nature as a mode of climate mitigation. For this reason, it has grown a life of itself, with its own issues, community of practitioners, approaches and monitoring systems.

REDD is an integral part of climate mitigation. And like any climate change mitigation intervention, REDD interventions require a monitoring system to measure the impacts they generate. The Social and Biodiversity Impact Assessment (SBIA) Manual for REDD+ Projects is a guide designed for project developers for conducting social and biodiversity impact assessment. The Forest Trends, the CCB Alliance (CCBA), Flora and Fauna International (FFI) and the Rainforest Alliance developed the guidelines, which was launched through a webinar last November 22, 2011.

Michael Richards of Forest Trends writes more details about the SBIA here.
