Nesting: Reconciling REDD+ at multiple scales (An Asia-Pacific perspective)

uploaded by Leona Liu

There are as many drivers of deforestation and forest degradation that lead to forest emissions as there are ways to mitigate them. In a given area, various actors – from local communities to private companies – may all be engaged in actions that reduce emissions, from sustainable agricultural intensification to reforestation and forest restoration plans. At the same time, the national government may implement land-tenure reform. All these actions contribute to reducing emissions resulting from deforestation and forest degradation. 

This is why achieving large-scale mitigation in the land sector requires collective action at different levels. In practice, this means that governments engaged in REDD+ must not only enact policy reforms, but also find ways to incentivize local actions, so that they can contribute to national mitigation goals. “Nesting” looks at how governments can incentivize local, smaller-scale activities and integrate them with larger national (or subnational) programmes to achieve their NDC and support low-carbon development. 

REDD+ nesting can be especially critical where responsibility for, and the impacts of, land management are decentralized. Nesting is also needed when countries apply for results-based finance at both the national and subnational levels, or if there are active REDD+ projects within the country’s borders.

ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CHALLENGES TO SCALING UP SUSTAINABLE COCOA PRODUCTION IN CÔTE D’IVOIRE - executive summary

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

Côte d’Ivoire has one of the fastest rates of deforestation in the world and the fastest in Africa. The most promising solutions to decouple agriculture from deforestation would be to increase agricultural productivity with improved plant material while making use of good practices (intensification) and to plant associated trees in cocoa plantations (agroforestry). 

In 2016, the Permanent REDD+ Executive Secretariat at the Ministry of Environment mandated a framing study on the private investment opportunities in Côte d’Ivoire. The main goal of this study on economic and financing models is to provide the government with useful information to assist ongoing private sector commitments, and to bring strategic data to other related initiatives (including the Cocoa and Forests initiative, the working group Environment and Climate Change from the cocoa sector Private-Public Partnership Platform or the Green Climate Fund). UN Environment is partnering with the European Forest Institute to design tangible financing models for deforestation-free cocoa agriculture by the private sector, in cooperation with the Ivorian state and its partners. The successful uptake of agroforestry in the cocoa production chain is a major component of the analysis.
