Why is MRV important?



MRV provides a structured and standardized approach for tracking and reporting progress in biodiversity initiatives. This accountability is essential to ensure that the commitments made by real estate entities, governments, or other stakeholders are being met and that goals are achieved

Data-Driven Decision-Making:

MRV processes collect valuable data on the state of biodiversity. This data can inform decisions related to the allocation of resources, the development of new policies, and the identification of areas that require attention or improvement


MRV processes make the data on biodiversity accessible to the public and stakeholders, promoting transparency. This transparency is crucial in building trust among stakeholders and demonstrating a commitment to sustainability and biodiversity conservation

Evaluation of Effectiveness:

MRV allows for the assessment of the effectiveness of biodiversity initiatives. By comparing data before and after implementation, it becomes possible to measure the impact of specific actions and determine which strategies are most successful in enhancing biodiversity

Demonstrating Compliance:

For organizations and cities committed to sustainability goals, MRV is crucial for demonstrating compliance with international and national commitments, such as the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Sustainable Development Goals, or local environmental regulations

Long-Term Monitoring:

Biodiversity is not a one-time effort but a long-term commitment. MRV provides a framework for ongoing monitoring and adaptive management, ensuring that efforts are sustained over time.

Why crowdsource primary MRV data through our engagement program?

Cost-Effective Data Collection:

Engaging stakeholders reduces the costs associated with data gathering. It can be expensive to hire experts or consultants for extensive data collection, whereas community involvement can be more cost-effective

Community Ownership:

Involving the community in data collection fosters a sense of ownership and responsibility for the local environment. This can lead to greater long-term commitment to biodiversity conservation efforts

Increased Trust and Transparency:

Engaging stakeholders in data collection builds trust and transparency. When the community and employees see their data contributing to the decision-making process, they are more likely to trust the results and the actions taken based on those results

Educational Opportunities:

Involving tenants, employees, and the community in data gathering provides educational opportunities. Participants gain a better understanding of the importance of biodiversity and conservation, which can lead to more sustainable behaviors and practices

Social Cohesion:

Collaborative data gathering activities can foster social cohesion among community members and employees. Working together toward a common goal strengthens community bonds and fosters a sense of unity and purpose
