The Plan Vivo Participatory Toolkit is designed to support project developers and participants when planning and implementing participatory approaches, a requirement of Plan Vivo Standards. We encourage project developers and project participants to utilise these tools throughout the Plan Vivo Carbon Standard (PV Climate) certification, monitoring and verification process. 

Low cost, print-friendly versions of each tool (for use in the field) are available for download below. Should you require high resolution printable versions for distribution, please contact the Plan Vivo Secretariat by emailing: [email protected]
