Thank you very much for submitting your proposal. I think you present a very interesting idea, and you took the time to fill all the sections of the proposal, which allows us to understand your project. Here are some ideas to define a bit more your idea:
I see there are three components to it: the evaluation, the certification and the trade of environmental goods and services. It would be interesting if you could give more details about the electronic platform you propose. Are you talking about a website or something else?
You also talk about MRV technology. Could you give more details about what it is?
In order to define even more your project, it might be interesting to give an example of what kind of monitoring of ecosystems good and services will take place and how this could be traded. This could be useful to understand the relation between different ideas you're sharing in your proposal.
Also, I understand your focus is more about the platform, but there is still the evaluation and the pricing part that could be interesting to develop a bit more.
Thank you for your ideas!

I was wondering if you had time to take a look at the comments I've sent you regarding your proposal? There is still time until the end of the challenge, if you were planning on doing some changes or modify anything!
If so, would it be possible to tell me what you have changed, so we can keep track of the evolution of your project?
Don't hesitate if you have any questions.

Hi Ederson! You raise a very important point in your proposal about the increased role of natural capital in our cities and how to monitor and evaluate it. Two good resources that could be of value for your proposal is the NatCap Project at Stanford: http://www.naturalcapitalproject.org/ and the Urban Forest Tool from the City of Melbourne: http://melbourneurbanforestvisual.com.au/. Hope these help in shaping and refining your proposal a bit more! Good luck!
