Capacity building


Local stakeholders at every level are able to use and benefit from these activities.


Lack of training and capacity is repeatedly cited as one of the biggest barriers to realizing the benefits of REDD+ in the Greater Mekong region. TREEMAPS aims to fill this gap by making capacity building central to every aspect of the project.

We’re facilitating a number of activities to enable everyone from local communities to the Thai government to make the most of new carbon financing models and the other benefits standing forests bring. These include:
  • On-the-job training for all project activities, including using technology such as LiDAR and information systems
  • Training courses and workshops
  • Study tours
Activities have been designed to complement, contribute to and bring together other capacity-building efforts in the region.
