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.

Scoping private sector opportunities in Ethiopia: How to stimulate both economic development and REDD+ implementation?

uploaded by Alice Van der Elstraeten

Ethiopia is one of the fastest growing economies in Africa. Agriculture (subsistence and commercial) employs 80% of the population, contributes to 50% of the gross domestic

product and provides 60% of export revenues, highlighting the importance of the sector for Ethiopia’s economy. At the same time the country is experiencing ongoing

deforestation, with agriculture being the principal driver of deforestation in Ethiopia. There are 2 national strategies - the climate-resilience green economy (CRGE) and the

second growth transformation plan (GTP2) - to shift the country to a more sustainable development paradigm while growing to middle-income status by 2025. Ethiopia has ample indigenous bamboo resources: the largest area of bamboo in Africa with 1 million hectares with a potential of 3 million hectares. Based on desk research and

interviews, this report concludes that investments in bamboo carry the highest potential to restore, protect or recover forests as Ethiopia committed in 2014 to restore 15 million

hectares by 2030. In doing so, there may be possibilities to harness the potential of both international development finance institutions as well as domestic finance institutions, given that

Ethiopia is at the moment an underbanked country with little domestic or international funding flowing to forest-friendly projects that contribute to REDD+.
