Consulting and Surveys related to REDD+

Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) is a mechanism (under negotiation by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change since 2005) has two objectives: mitigating climate change through actively reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and removing green house gases through enhanced forest management of forests in developing countries.

To move forward with REDD+ (with sustainable management of forests, conservation of forest carbon stocks and enhancement of forest carbon stocks constituting the “+” in REDD+) activities, it is necessary to conduct monitoring of carbon stocks in developing countries that have insufficient statistical data.

Service Features
  • We provide highly precise data on forest area and carbon stock dynamics.
  • We conduct analysis of measurement data such as from ground sampling surveys, satellite remote sensing, airborne laser scanners and radars.
  • We are actively working on REDD+ projects in many developing countries such as technical transfers involving training at local institutions.
  • We propose optimal solutions from a global viewpoint to various issues on the road to advancing REDD+ based on our ample experience and accumulated data from many years working – particularly on overseas development aid projects – in developing countries.
