The Plan Vivo Foundation has launched its first formalised Technical Advisory Group to support the technical development of the Plan Vivo System and projects.
The Group is composed of a wide range of experts in community-based natural resource management, ecosystem services quantification and monitoring, and the development of rural livelihood programmes. Expertise will be drawn from African, Asian and Latin American experts to ensure the System is practical and applicable in different developing country contexts.
The Group will provide elements of quality control in the application of Plan Vivo System, and contribute to the ongoing participatory development of the Plan Vivo Standard through providing guidance and technical oversight.
Specific functions are to:
- Peer review technical documents from existing and potential Plan Vivo projects
- Provide recommendations on technical requirements in the Plan Vivo Standard and how they should be applied in practice
- Contribute to the development of tools and methodologies to support Plan Vivo projects
