Framework of the SIS in Ghana, draft, September 2018 (English)

uploaded by Dave

The development of a Safeguard Information System (SIS) is one of the three safeguard-
related requirements 1 outlined by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate
Change (UNFCCC) and is linked to the delivery of results-based payments 2 .
Although there are no official guidelines on how countries are supposed to set up a system
for providing information on how safeguards are addressed and respected (commonly known
as a Safeguard Information System or SIS), Parties to the UNFCCC have agreed on some broad
guidance on the characteristics of a SIS.

Ghana’s Country Approach to Safeguards Roadmap, draft V.2, December 2016 (English)

uploaded by Dave

With technical support from SNV, CLP and KASA and financial support from BMUB, Ghana
has decided to adopt a Country Approach to Safeguards (CAS) in order to meet and
implement its safeguards requirements for REDD+. In addition to responding to the United
Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) requirements, a country
approach to safeguards will allow Ghana to consider further objectives, including, for
example, meeting the safeguard requirements of organizations (e.g. donors) providing
interim results-based REDD+ payments/finance, such as the Forest Carbon Partnership
Facility (FCPF), and also contributing to the social and environmental sustainability of
national policies and their implementation.

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.

Le rôle des forêts dans la transformation vers une économie verte en Afrique

uploaded by Mihaela Secrieru

 

Ce rapport présente une analyse du rôle des forêts d'Afrique dans l'avenir des économies vertes du continent. Il dénonce des réalités sombres et problématiques pour les populations, les marchés et les écosystèmes d'Afrique du fait de la déforestation et de la dégradation constantes des forêts. Toutefois, il offre aussi un aperçu du potentiel positif des forêts alors que les pays s'orientent vers des économies vertes durables et efficaces dans l'utilisation qu'elles font des ressources.

S'appuyant sur des études de cas issues de l'Afrique du Sud, du Cameroun, de l'Éthiopie, du Ghana, du Kenya et du Mozambique, ce rapport se penche sur les succès et les échecs, les obstacles et les opportunités pour les forêts d'Afrique. Il en ressort clairement que la prise de décisions démocratique et le leadership local sont cruciaux pour tirer des avantages durables de ce capital naturel. L'accès au financement et à des investissements verts sera aussi impératif.

Les décideurs feraient bien de s'inspirer des prescriptions rationnelles de ce rapport pour lier la planification REDD+ à une économie verte et à des
investissements durables. Dans bien des pays, la transformation vers une économie verte durable sera tributaire d'un développement des forêts résolument tourné vers l'avenir – ces forêts qui sont l'un des écosystèmes les plus importants et les plus riches d'Afrique.

The role of forests in a green economy transformation in Africa

uploaded by Mihaela Secrieru

This report provides an analysis of the role of Africa’s forests in the continent’s future green economies. The report points to stark, problematic realities for people of Africa, markets and ecosystems from continuing deforestation and forest degradation. It also offers a glimpse of the positive potential of forests as countries shift toward resource-efficient and sustainable green economies.


Drawing on cases studies from Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique and South Africa, this report looks at successes and failures, obstacles and opportunities for forests in Africa. What is clear is that democratic decision-making and local leadership are crucial to enjoy sustainable benefits of this natural capital. Access to financing and green investment will also be imperative.


Policymakers would do well to draw on this report’s recommendations for linking REDD+ planning with a green economy and sustainable investments. The transformation to a sustainable green economy in many countries will depend on the forward-looking sustainable management of forests - one of Africa’s most bountiful and important ecosystems.
