Karin Rivera – Carbon Forestry Expert
“My trajectory in the forestry sector has led me to understand the importance of comprehending forest dynamics to enhance ecosystem services and reduce forest vulnerability to climate change. I joined Form International because they share my approach: prioritising understanding forest dynamics before strategic intervention. Their commitment to enhancing forest resilience and uplifting the livelihoods of vulnerable communities perfectly aligns with my philosophy.”
Karin’s expertise spans REDD+ and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to implementing National Forest Inventories, developing methodological guides for MRV documents, greenhouse gas inventory reporting, carbon offsetting, and climate change risk analysis. At Form International she is involved in designing and developing nature-based low-carbon projects for initiatives in Africa and Latin America.
