Development of an action plan for the creation of a MNV system, creation of the MNV System (detailed MNV) and development of a Burkina Faso MNV reference scenario for the Forest Investment Programme (FIP)

Country: Burkina Faso

Sector(s): Environment

Date: 05/2017 - 05/2018

Client / Beneficiary: Ministère Environnement, Economie Verte et Changement Climatique - Burkina Faso

Financing Agency: African Development Bank

Project Value: 554,790 €

Description of the project and Services provided:

While the country has made good progress in generating information to develop the FREL/FRL and the design of the MNV system, there are still shortcomings which prevent the establishment of the FREL/FRL and the MNV system. The overall goal of the study (financed by the PGFC) is to remove the shortcomings (no map of changes in forest cover and no model to quantify the loss of SOC due to deforestation) and use existing information to establish a FREL/FRL.

The specific purposes are:

  • Provide support to Burkina Faso to overcome the shortcomings identified for the development of a reference level and MNV system;
  • Define and implement an action plan for RL/MNV development in Burkina Faso - at the national level, and which can also be separated for a jurisdictional programme;
  • Define a reference level for forest emissions and/or the reference level for Burkina Faso forests;
  • Design and implement a MNV system at the national level which can handle potential jurisdictional programmes.

The results of the project are:

  • Forest cover map and SOC loss quantification completed: methodology design (1st step) and implementation (2nd step)
  • RL/MRV system completed: methodology design (1st step) and implementation (2nd step)
