Bhutan Corruption Risk Assessment for REDD+ - FINAL

uploaded by Estelle Fach

 

The research for this study, commissioned by the Government of Bhutan and undertaken through a participative methodology, strongly suggests corruption is not a major threat to forests and forest-dependent people in Bhutan. However, stakeholders identified three main areas of concern, from which recommendations are developed

  1. Access to timber and forests for rural communities
  2. Forests crimes, including illegal logging
  3. Governance challenges in relation to decentralization or community co-management of forests

    The Funding Instrument for REDD+ in Indonesia: Making the Case for Financial Innovation

    uploaded by Zeva Aulia Sudana

     
    The Funding Instrument for REDD+ in Indonesia (FREDDI): Making the Case for Financial Innovation

    The estimated financial need for implementing REDD+ until 2020 is USD10 billion. Institutions and mechanisms to mobilize and manage REDD+ finance are a key priority of Indonesia’s REDD+ programme at this stage - and this study aims to support this process through analysis and recommendations. Specifically, the study reviews the early stages of the development of the Fund for REDD+ in Indonesia (FREDDI) which was housed with the National REDD+ Agency (BP REDD+), and - to the extent to which FREDDI developed before the duties and functions of BP REDD+ were incorporated within the Ministry of Environment and Forestry - considers its ability to achieve its mandated objectives with regards to fund management and mobilization. Further, the study provides an overview of the potential role of financial innovation – such as debt and market mechanisms – in enhancing the role that a Fund for REDD+ in Indonesia could play in the scope of Indonesia’s REDD+ programme. Ultimately, the report affirms the notion that such a Fund should evolve beyond a passive disbursement mechanism to mobilize further investment from both private and public sectors

    REDD+ Social and Environmental Safeguards Development and Implementation in Indonesia


    A system to monitor, report and verify the social and environmental impacts of REDD+ is integral to Indonesia’s REDD+ Programme, in line with both the UNFCCC Cancun Decisions and Indonesia’s own vision of REDD+ as Beyond Carbon. This study provides a comprehensive review of over 40 social and environmental safeguards related to REDD+ implementation in Indonesia, comparing each of them to the UNFCCC Cancun Safeguards (representing an authoritative international baseline for REDD+ social and environmental safeguards). The review covers standards related to multilateral agreements and programmatic standards; carbon market, NGO and private sector initiatives; bilateral programs; national instruments; and synergies with related international treaties. The study summarizes gaps and lessons learned from available safeguards systems, focusing on key themes such as Free Prior and Informed Consent, governance and coordination, accountability and stakeholder participation. Recommendations are provided to guide the further development of REDD+ in Indonesia, including the improvement of coherence and harmonization, improving information sharing, ensuring accountability and ensuring sustainability in safeguards implementation, including by undertaking a thorough cost analysis.

    Joint FCPF/UN-REDD Programme Guidance Note for REDD+ Countries: Establishing and Strengthening Grievance Redress Mechanisms

    uploaded by Jen Laughlin

    This Information Note was developed jointly by the UN-REDD Programme and the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility. 

    The introduction of REDD+ in participating countries is likely to have a significant impact on the dynamics of conflicts over forest resources, and on land, oil, gas, minerals and other valuable resources in forested areas. The purpose of this Guidance Note is to help countries strengthen their capacity for grievance resolution in order to respond to contentious issues, complaints and disputes.

    A national feedback and grievance redress mechanism needs to be effectively available, and if necessary strengthened, as part of the country's REDD+ institutional arrangements. Such a mechanism needs to be available to REDD+ stakeholders from the earliest stages of Readiness implementation in order to facilitate handling of any request for feedback or complaint by any REDD+ Readiness stakeholders, with particular attention to providing access to geographically, culturally or economically isolated or excluded groups.

    This note proposes an approach to strengthening in-country capacity for grievance resolution activities to be carried out during the REDD+ Readiness phase.

    Towards Better Forest Governance for REDD+ in Indonesia: An Evaluation of the Forest Licensing System in Indonesia

    uploaded by Estelle Fach

    Covering 52 million hectares of forest lands, forest licenses in Indonesia can play a role to regulate high forestry and land sector emissions and be a key element in strengthening forest governance for REDD+. The existing online licensing system at the central level has been a first step, yet concerns about its effectiveness and transparency have led to the need for an in-depth evaluation. The study was conducted at the request and under the guidance of the Ministry of Forestry as a recommendation from Indonesia’s first Participatory Governance Assessment/Forest Governance Index, with the goal to identify and mitigate inefficiencies and corrupt practices in the process to apply and obtain forest licenses. The evaluation is based on quantitative and qualitative information gathered from 116 service users and 44 service providers.

    It examines 11 governance indicators and reveals that areas for needed improvement include 1) timeliness of the service 2) unofficial fees that service users have to pay  3) access to online information;  4) independence of service providers from their supervisors and 5) favorable treatments for better-connected large scale companies.

    Conversely, service users are more satisfied about the overall convenience of the facilities and the availability of a complaints mechanism, with reservations however on diligence in follow-up on complaints.

    Practical recommendations to improve these issues are then proposed.
