REDD [2008-2011]
Pilot Project Cameroon
The Government of Cameroon has been actively supporting REDD since its inception in 2005. Under the auspices of the European Space Agency (ESA) GMES Service Element on Forest Monitoring, a pilot project to develop a national forest monito- ring systems for REDD+ in Cameroon was implemented with user consultation and endorsement in 2007. The project was later supported by the German development bank (KfW) and the GIZ Support Project to COMIFAC.
The overall objective of the project was to establish a pre-opera- tional framework for deforestation/degradation assessment and carbon monitoring/accounting for the national REDD+ process. The project addressed methodological issues for the REDD poli- cy formulation with special focus on application of Earth Obser- vation (EO) technologies with ground-based Carbon accounting.
