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.

Bosques y género en la preparación para REDD+ un insumo para la incorporación del enfoque de género en la estrategia integral de control a la deforestación y gestión de los bosques

uploaded by Marcela Rodríguez Salguero

El programa ONU-REDD a nivel global cuenta con un extenso trabajo en materia de género el cual orienta no solo la preparación de las estrategias nacionales de Reducción de emisiones por deforestación y degradación de bosques ENREDD+), sino que condensa buena parte de los aprendizajes generados hasta el momento no solo por el Programa, sino también por las Agencias de naciones unidas que lo lideran. dicho trabajo se centra en la necesidad de establecer canales de participación amplios e informados que tiendan a corregir los desbalances estructurales en los pilares que sostienen los programas REDD+, todos estos relacionados de una u otra forma con los ejes de análisis en materia de género que son; división sexual del trabajo, acceso a recursos y control sobre los recursos, y la participación sustantiva.

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.

Bosques Territorios de Vida- Estrategia Integral de control a la deforestación y Gestión de los Bosques.

uploaded by Marcela Rodríguez Salguero

La Estrategia Bosques Territorios de Vida, es un instrumento de política transectorial, que busca reducir la deforestación y la degradación de los bosques, promoviendo y estableciendo una gestión forestal en el territorio colombiano, bajo un enfoque de desarrollo rural integral sostenible, que coadyuve al buen vivir de las comunidades locales, contribuya al desarrollo local y aumente la resiliencia ecosistémica fomentando la adaptación y mitigación del cambio climático. Esta estrategia es el resultado del proceso de preparación para REDD+ en Colombia que se adelanta desde 2010, y constituye la Estrategia Nacional REDD+ (ENREDD+) del país, en el marco la Convención Marco de Naciones Unidas sobre Cambio Climático (CMNUCC).

REDD+ in Indonesia and FAO

uploaded by Maryia Kukharava

Indonesia has embarked on comprehensive reforms to land-use policies, customary land rights, regulations and law enforcement to meet its pledge made in Paris in 2015 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 29% from Business As Usual level by 2030 and by 41% with international support. Between 2010 and 2012, Indonesia has been working to create enabling conditions for REDD+ implementation.

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.
