Costa Rica’s Monitoring of Land Use Change within Production Landscapes (MOCUPP) is a strategy for sustainable land use management and a tool for annual monitoring of land use.  MOCUPP is practical, low-cost and replicable. This publication describes its rationale, outputs, scope and costs as clearly and transparently as possible to allow for replication.

Implementation of MOCUPP contributes to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals and commitments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Convention on Biological Diversity and Convention to Combat Desertification.
