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.

Boreal forests in a changing climate (Mongolia: A Case Study)

uploaded by Leona Liu

Boreal forests stretch across the northern reaches of the globe, from Europe to Russia to North America. They are the world’s largest biome, and make up 29% of the world’s total forest area, as well as 32% of global land-based carbon stocks. Compared with tropical forests, they store twice as much carbon per hectare, much of it in the soil. 

The Northern Hemisphere’s frozen soils and peatlands hold an estimated 1,700 billion tonnes of carbon – four times more than humans have emitted since the industrial revolution, and twice as much as is currently in the atmosphere. 

That means these forests play a key role in mitigating climate change – but at the same time, they are intensely affected by it: boreal forests are warming faster than any other forest biome.

Read this info brief to find out more about the boreal forests in Mongolia, which are among the world's most important. Boreal forests stretch across Mongolia’s north. They cover 14.2 million hectares – 9 percent of the country – and provide important benefits for this developing nation, as well as an important source of livelihood.

Scoping private sector opportunities in Ethiopia: How to stimulate both economic development and REDD+ implementation?

uploaded by Alice Van der Elstraeten

Ethiopia is one of the fastest growing economies in Africa. Agriculture (subsistence and commercial) employs 80% of the population, contributes to 50% of the gross domestic

product and provides 60% of export revenues, highlighting the importance of the sector for Ethiopia’s economy. At the same time the country is experiencing ongoing

deforestation, with agriculture being the principal driver of deforestation in Ethiopia. There are 2 national strategies - the climate-resilience green economy (CRGE) and the

second growth transformation plan (GTP2) - to shift the country to a more sustainable development paradigm while growing to middle-income status by 2025. Ethiopia has ample indigenous bamboo resources: the largest area of bamboo in Africa with 1 million hectares with a potential of 3 million hectares. Based on desk research and

interviews, this report concludes that investments in bamboo carry the highest potential to restore, protect or recover forests as Ethiopia committed in 2014 to restore 15 million

hectares by 2030. In doing so, there may be possibilities to harness the potential of both international development finance institutions as well as domestic finance institutions, given that

Ethiopia is at the moment an underbanked country with little domestic or international funding flowing to forest-friendly projects that contribute to REDD+.

Operationalising and Financing National REDD+ Strategies: from programming and financing implementation to results-based payments

uploaded by Leona Liu

A REDD+ National Strategy or Action Plan may not be sufficient to fully guide REDD+ implementation, and may need to be complemented by more detailed, operational document(s) at national and/or subnational level. As agreed in the Warsaw Framework for REDD+, a National REDD+ Strategy and/or Action Plan is one of the prerequisites for accessing results-based payments (RBPs) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). These strategies present an overall vision, over the medium to long term, setting aspirational goals and outlining a general approach to achieving them. However, they often lack the operational elements required to fully frame REDD+ implementation: an explicit theory of change with clear priorities for implementation; a budget coupled with a financing plan and funding mechanism; and/or a REDD+ results framework with an associated monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system. This infobrief examines how to operationalise and finance National REDD+ Strategies from programming and financing implementation to results-based payments.

Integrated analyses for a REDD+ strategy in Nigeria with focus on Cross River State

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

Report on private sector engagement status in REDD+ and recommendations

Nigeria's forests, which currently extend over 9.6 million hectares, have been rapidly declining over the past decades. The current deforestation rate, estimated at 3.7%, is one of the highest in the world.  The REDD+ Strategy for Nigeria intends to enhance the value of standing forests and to incentivize sustainable forest management through a multi-stakeholder approach and a green development perspective

Forestry and Macroeconomic Accounts of Nigeria: The Importance of Linking Ecosystem Services to Macroeconomics (Ex summary)

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

The purpose of this study is to analyze the economic value of Nigeria’s forest resources and demonstrate some policy instruments that would alleviate pressure on these natural forest systems. The results show a rapid and severe rate of deforestation, results from a range of cumulative effects fundamentally driven by the immediate availability of woody biomass in the form of timber, fuelwood and construction timber; and the opportunity to acquire land for significantly higher agricultural returns. Together, these drivers comprise a considerable economic incentive for deforestation.

The total value of forest ecosystem services based on valuations done between 2000 and 2015 is approximately 1,000,000 Naira/ha. Although value is derived through forest use, the unsustainable exploitation thereof and subsequent deforestation results in a net loss to the economy of Nigeria. 

These losses will continue for as long as there is a disconnect between the cost-benefit decisions made by land holders, users and other indirect role players, where the net benefit of deforestation is highly positive; and the cost-benefit ratio at a national scale, which, as demonstrated above, is highly negative.

Thus, to address the unique deforestation challenges faced by Nigeria, this study not only uses accounting and valuation of natural capital, but also makes significant progress towards designing and testing policy instruments that goes to the heart of the country’s deforestation problem

The analysis shows that the contribution of forests to the economy of Nigeria is underestimated in the national accounts.

Furthermore, the study demonstrates three economic policy instruments that seek to incentivise landholders to pursue sustainable forest management. These proposed policy options are not intended to be a comprehensive final set of options for Nigeria, but are rather used to demonstrate how these options could work, what they would cost, to what extent they would curb deforestation and what the relative costs and benefits to the economy of Nigeria would behe three preliminary policy options tested are: (i) Carbon trade; (ii) Certified plantation forestry and (iii) Agroforestry.

La strategie nationale REDD+ Cote d'Ivoire (full report)

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

Biodiversity in Côte d’Ivoire is among the richest in Western Africa. The country’s total forest area was estimated at over seven million hectares in 2000 but has fallen sharply due to high rates of deforestation and forest degradation suffered in its recent history.

Several policies have been put in place to curb this trend and restore the country’s ecological capital as it makes the transition to a more sustainable model of development.

Côte d'Ivoire became a UN-REDD Programme partner country in June 2011 and has developed a REDD+ Readiness Plan following a participatory approach.

Cartographie des financements alignés à la REDD+ en Côte d’Ivoire (Full report)

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

Les forêts de Côte d’Ivoire ont subi d’énormes pressions au cours des dernières décennies. Au rythme actuel de la déforestation, la Côte d’Ivoire pourrait perdre la totalité de sa couverture forestière d’ici à 2034 (FCPF, ONU-REDD, 2014).

L’expansion agricole des cultures vivrières et de rente (en particulier le cacao, le palmier à huile et l’hévéa), l’exploitation forestière et minière et la forte dépendance des ménages au bois énergie ont favorisé la disparition du couvert forestier (Etc Terra, 2016). La plupart de ces activités accroissent la vulnérabilité aux impacts du changement climatique, menaçant la productivité des terres dont dépend l’économie ivoirienne.

Des alternatives existent. La réorientation des centaines de milliards de Francs CFA (FCFA) dépensés annuellement dans l’utilisation des terres vers des activités plus vertes pourrait accroître la productivité sans sacrifier les forêts du pays.

Reconnaissant cette opportunité, le gouvernement de la Côte d’Ivoire développe sa Stratégie nationale et son Plan d’investissement REDD+ dans le but d’initier la transition vers une agriculture zéro déforestation et de restaurer le couvert forestier à 20% du territoire d’ici à 2030.

La Cartographie des flux financiers alignés à la REDD+ en Côte d’Ivoire offre un diagnostic de la nature et du volume des flux financiers déboursés en 2015 par l’Etat ivoirien et ses partenaires techniques et financiers qui contribuent à la lutte contre la déforestation. Elle vise à la fois à mesurer les progrès dans la mobilisation de financements contribuant à la lutte contre la déforestation et à identifier les besoins et opportunités d’appui
