From October to December 2019, the Project Management Unit (PMU) conducted two activities to prepare for the verification of the Tumring REDD+ Project. First, a pre-testing project verification was successfully conducted with the support from Dr. Simon Bird from Wildlife Works Carbon (WWC), who helped to strengthen PMU’s Standard Operation Procedures (SOP) for biomass and leakage plots verification. Dr. Bird also helped verify the community indicators and observed deforestation status in the project area.
Second, trained by WWC, the project biomass team (8 team members) conducted re-measurement of biomass plots. This re-measurement was to ensure that each member of the biomass team can apply the SOP, which is required by the international standard.
