Nesting: Reconciling REDD+ at Multiple Scales (An Asia-Pacific Perspective)

uploaded by Leona Liu

Nesting: Reconciling REDD+ at Multiple Scales - An Asia-Pacific Perspective

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.

Inventory of Volume and Biomass Tree Allometric Equations for Southeast Asia: 2018 Update

The objective of this report is to provide an update of the GlobAllomeTree database with relevant tree allometric models for seven Southeast Asian countries - Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam. Models are obtained from both peer-reviewed scientific literature and national technical reports and validated using methods previously described by Birigazzi et al., (2015) through the Fantallometrik tool.

This report is part of the MRV series of allometric equation database reports of the UN-REDD Programme, together with those for Cambodia (Sarin et al., 2012), Viet Nam (Inoguchi et al., 2013), the United Republic of Tanzania (Vyamana and Sola, 2013), The Pacific (Poultouchidou, Monnier and Birigazzi, 2013), North America (Birigazzi et al., 2013), and Bangladesh (Akhter, Hossain and Birigazzi, 2013), South Asia (Sandeep et al., 2014) and China (Cheng, Gamarra and Birigazzi, 2014).

Using Spatial Analysis to Support REDD+ Land-Use Planning in Papua New Guinea: Strengthening Benefits for Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services and Livelihoods [High resolution]

Using Spatial Analysis to Support REDD+ Land-Use Planning in Papua New Guinea: Strengthening Benefits for Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services and Livelihoods

Some of the analyses presented here were developed by national technicians in joint working sessions. This contributed to building national capacity in spatial analysis, access to relevant datasets and the use of decision support tools. As more and better data becomes available, the analyses presented here could be updated to provide better support for planning, including at a sub-national scale. We encourage follow-up work to build on the analyses presented here and to capitalize on the enhanced in country capacity for spatial analysis for evidence-based decision-making.

Improving Efficiency in Forestry Operations and Forest Product Processing in Kenya: A Viable REDD+ Policy and Measure (Summary for Policy Makers)

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

Improving Efficiency in Forestry Operations and Forest Product Processing in Kenya: A Viable REDD+ Policy and Measure - Summary for Policy Makers

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.

Escenarios de Deforestación Futura en Panamá

Escenarios de Deforestación Futura en Panamá

La generación de escenarios de deforestación es imprescindible para entender áreas de alto riesgo y que meritan intervenciones tempranas. Si se asume que la implementación plena de un programa REDD+ que alcance todo el territorio del país puede tardar varios años en materializarse, entonces la secuencia geográfica de intervenciones, es decir, donde se debe implementar primero, toma gran valor. El avance de la deforestación en los próximos 5 a 10 años puede ser importante y por consiguiente también el daño ecosistémico que esta trae aparejado.

Dinámicas de Cambio de Uso de Suelo y Costos de Oportunidad en Panamá - Opciones para REDD+ y Sinergias con la Alianza por el Millón de Hectáreas

Este reporte presenta un análisis de las principales trayectorias de deforestación y degradación de bosques en Panamá, pérdidas y ganancias de carbono, y costos de oportunidad asociados. Se presenta también un análisis de sinergias entre REDD+ y la Alianza del Millón de Hectáreas, esta última una importante iniciativa del Gobierno de Panamá con capacidad de catalizar un cambio significativo en el paisaje rural del país. El reporte explora los ingresos brutos y netos de costos de oportunidad que REDD+ y la Alianza por el Millón de Hectáreas pudieran generar en concepto de pagos por resultados. El análisis toma todo el territorio panameño y se realiza principalmente desde una perspectiva social.

Mapping to Support Land-Use Planning for REDD+ in Kenya: Securing Additional Benefits

uploaded by Miriam Guth

High resolution.

Low resolution version (~4mb) available here.

Very high resolution version (~115mb) available here.

REDD+ can contribute to more policy goals than to climate change mitigation alone. The priority of the Government of Kenya is to implement environmentally and socially sustainable land-use and forest policies. All REDD+ activities will be designed with a focus on additional benefits such as improving biodiversity conservation and the livelihoods of forest dependent peoples.

The Government of Kenya has identified a need for better access to comprehensive spatial data and maps on natural vegetation and land use, the biodiversity in relevant ecosystems, the ecosystem services provided by forest, and the geographical patterns of deforestation, forest degradation and their drivers. This information can inform spatial planning and design of REDD+ strategy options.

The purpose of this report is to support REDD+ planning in Kenya through the development of maps on the distribution of drivers of deforestation and forest degradation, potential additional benefits of implementing REDD+ activities, and different implementation possibilities for REDD+ strategy options.

Inventory of Allometric Equations for Estimating tree Biomass: A Database for China

uploaded by Denise Martínez

Inventory of Allometric Equations for Estimating tree Biomass: A Database for China

This report introduces an allometric equation database developed specifically for China that complements the current database for Asian countries. The database was prepared following the tutorial given by Baldasso, Birigazzi et al. Equations were compiled according to different categories to provide an overview of the allometric equations available in the literature. A comparison of the equations using field inventory data was given using statistical software R to present the application of the allometric equations in the specific context.

Emerging Approaches to Forest Reference Emission Levels and/or Forest Reference Levels for REDD+

The UNFCCC has defined FREL/FRLs as benchmarks for assessing each country’s performance in implementing REDD+ activities. The purpose of this document is to inform countries seeking to develop FREL/FRLs for REDD+ with an overview of different approaches to FREL/FRLs and an analysis showing some emerging trends. The approaches presented are in most cases in a preliminary design phase and were developed and proposed by countries in the context of demonstration activities.
