TAP and PC Review Methods
 TAP Review:
 Individual reviews, using standard review template and
guidelines for both TAP and PC reviewers.
 Conference calls among TAP members
 Lead reviewers are nominated
 Lead reviewers produce single synthesis reviews, which
are shared with the countries.
 TAP conference call with country on TAP draft review
 Country revises R-PP, showing changes made
 Final TAP country review synthesis, and final R-PPs posted
on FCPF web
TAP process remains labor-intensive,
but valuable
For PC 13
• 6 country R-PPs reviewed
• 5 to 8 TAP reviews per country = 36 reviews:
• 20 from REDD country experts
