WWF's REDD+ Inspiring Practices are designed to share REDD+ lessons learned, so that they may be replicated or adapted as appropriate by others for their own REDD+ related work.

This REDD+ Inspiring Practice focuses on participatory carbon measurement carried out with local and indigenous communities in Indonesia’s Kutai Barat and Mahakam Ulu districts.This process aimed to test the feasibility of community involvement in measuring and monitoring the forest’s carbon. It also sought to recognize and call on community members’ long-standing knowledge of their forests, while building the new knowledge and technical skills they needed to effectively measure carbon stored in the forest ecosystem.
