Research questions

The governance team designed an open-ended questionnaire based on three main research questions, concurrent sub-questions and relevant indicators. The research questions were decided during a two-day workshop and were the result of extensive discussions between and within the teams (social science, RS/GIS, database and statistics) involved in the PMRV project. The three main research questions drive the activities of both the healthcare and forestry database teams. They are:

  1. How can existing systems in Indonesia that include (P)MRV be relevant for PMRV in the context of REDD+?
  2. What is the existing approach to verify or validate credibility of MRV data?
  3. How can we use perceptions from the various actors to inform about the robustness of current MRV systems?
