A workshop entitled 'REDD+ measuring, reporting and verification science solutions to policy challenges' was organized by the WWF Forest and Climate Initiative, WWF Netherlands and Wageningen University REDD@WUR network from 10th to 12th June 2013 in Zeist, The Netherlands. The purpose of this workshop was to assess the status and development of monitoring approaches in light of the evowlving REDD+ measuring, reporting and verification needs from different actors in the REDD+ measuring, reporting and verification process. Accordingly, the most important gaps were identified and led to the development of research priorities with focus on better linking local and national REDD+ efforts on five themes, namely: monitoring and measurement; reporting and verification; reference levels; measuring, reporting and verification of safeguards; and benefit sharing.
