Congo Basin Forest Partnership (CBFP), a comprehensive regional platform dealing with the challenges facing the Congo Basin forests, gathers more than eighty African and international partner countries and organisations from both the public and private sectors as well as from civil society and the scientific community. The 17th Meeting of Parties of the Partnership is taking place from 24 to 27 October in Douala, Cameroon. This year’s meeting of Parties of the CBFP includes three working streams:

  •          forest governance and land use,
  •          biodiversity and wildlife and,
  •          climate change (mitigation and adaptation).

Under the theme climate change (mitigation and adaptation) a session “Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV): realities and challenges in the era of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) implementation” will focus on the advances in the MRV process at the regional, national, jurisdictional level in the context of the NDCs, will discuss the challenges, and the lessons learned from MRV initiatives, and will identify future opportunities to improve MRV in Central Africa. The Regional Technical Advisor for Africa, Anne Branthomme, FAO/UN-REDD Programme, will participate in the meeting and talk about the general situation of MRV processes under REDD+ in the Central African countries.
