Services and experience

Services provided:

We offer services internationally and domestically. At the policy level we advise national agencies in developing countries on REDD+ matters and means to mainstream actions into whole of government processes. Matt McIntyre is a Technical Adviser to the Plan Vivo Voluntary Carbon trading system (University of Edinburgh, Scotland). He has undertaken a number of feasibility and validation assessments for Plan Vivo. The international work has enabled Matt to access and evaluate most carbon sequestration and trading criteria, policies and governance mechanisms - and advise countries accordingly. On the domestic front Matt has applied the NCAT set of tools for feasibility assessments for private clients, the most recent one being for a case in Kilcoy, Qld. The team has GIS and Remote Sensing capabilities and we have delivered training and education courses on use of technologies for NRM and forest assessments, among other landscape approaches. Current work being completed in Timor Leste (Dept of Protected Areas and National Park) and the Cook Islands incorporates consideration of REDD opportunities. Domestically Matt provides services to SEWPaC with regard to Biodiversity Fund and Caring for Country applications which include opportunities under the CFI program. He has therefore a very good understanding of the processes, needs and practicalities of various approaches and methods. Matt is adopted into a Yolgnu family on Elcho Island. This culminates work his family has done in Indigenous communities over the last couple of generations, and that he has done with customary societies in the broader Asia-Pacific region.
