Global Forest Observation Initiative Methods and Guidance (GFOI-MGD)

Dr Rob Waterworth and Dr John Raison of the Mullion Group are contributing authors for the second version of the Global Forest Observations Initiative Methods and Guidance Document (GFOI MGD), providing the latest thinking on MRV systems development and examples of practical implementation of the guidance. Rob and John were also authors of the first version of the GFOI MGD, which was launched in 2014.

The GFOI MGD provides a set of methods and guidelines for estimating future carbon stocks to support countries in their effort to build national forest monitoring systems. This will help ensure that forest carbon assessments are credible, comparable and transparent.
