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

SUMMARY REPORT AND THE POST ASSESSMENT RESULTS

uploaded by Thilal Nanayakkara

As part of the inception phase for the new component of the Mangroves for the Future (MFF) Programme to include mangroves and associated coastal ecosystems in the REDD+ agenda in the Asia region, MFF with technical support from the UN-REDD Programme organised a 5-day training course from 22-26 January 2018.

The main purpose of the training was to build a knowledge base for REDD+ readiness and implementation on the ground, with a specific focus on developing capacity to integrate mangrove/coastal forest ecosystems in the REDD+ process.

Info brief Ghana REDD + strategy

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

Ghana’s net annual loss of forest cover is estimated at 2% with forest degradation generally acknowledged as more prevalent as compared to deforestation. To address these challenges, Ghana’s REDD+ Strategy was developed to meet the requirements of the Warsaw Framework on REDD+ and other decisions of the UNFCCC.

Improving efficiency in forestry operations and forest product processing in Kenya- a viable REDD+ policy and measures (full report)

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

This report analyses whether increased efficiency in forestry operations and forest product processing and utilization are interesting REDD+ policies and measures  for the Government of Kenya to pursue, with the potential to attract public and/or private investments to enable REDD+ implementation. In particular, the report focuses on the extent to which efficiency improvements could address supply deficiency in the forest sector, thereby reducing pressures on existing forests and related emissions.

 Kenya’s constitution has set a minimum national tree cover target of 10%. Additionally, the country has demonstrated sustained commitment to anchoring REDD+  in its national policy framework and development strategy. In this context, Kenya is in the process of identifying the best ways to address the direct and indirect drivers of deforestation and forest degradation. Both timber and fuelwood demand are increasing and the challenge ahead is to help public and private plantations to meet future demand in a sustainable way, by reducing the quantity of non-renewable biomass used to bridge the demand shortfall. According to the Kenyan Readiness Preparation Proposal (R-PP), the lack of security of timber supply to the sawmilling is a key indirect driver of deforestation and forest degradation ) as it may contribute to encroachment in forests not destined for timber production. Sustainable utilization of wood resources, including but not limited to enhanced efficiency in processing, is one way for Kenya to potentially achieve a reduction or removal of emissions and hence REDD+ results.

To this end, cost estimates and emissions reduction potential were undertaken in various wood and charcoal related sectors because although wood is a renewable material, it becomes non-renewable when the harvesting rates exceed the ecosystem’s production capacity. And the proportion of biomass used that is not renewable, (fNRB), was a key parameter to estimate the potential emission reductions from deforestation and forest degradation of each of the researched sectors.
