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+.

Analyse de la situation foncière en vue de la préparation de la stratégie REDD+ en Tunisie

uploaded by Amanda Bradley

This assessment provides an overview of the land tenure situation in Tunisia in the context of REDD+.  It analyzes the legal and policy framework and provides a comprehensive set of recommendations for next steps.  It also includes data on forest jurisdictions and areas under each jurisdiction.  The objectives of the study were to contribute to the protection of the country’s forests, to provide up to date data on forest tenure, and to better understand the connections between REDD+ and tenure.  As a result of the study the forest areas under different tenure systems were identified and quantified. 

Cette évaluation donne un aperçu de la situation du régime foncier en Tunisie dans le contexte de REDD +. Il analyse le cadre juridique et politique et fournit un ensemble complet de recommandations pour les prochaines étapes. Il comprend également des données sur les juridictions forestières et les zones relevant de chaque juridiction. L’étude avait pour objectif de contribuer à la protection des forêts du pays, de fournir des données actualisées sur le régime foncier des forêts et de mieux comprendre les liens qui unissent REDD + et le régime foncier. À la suite de cette étude, les zones forestières soumises à différents systèmes de tenure ont été identifiées et quantifiées.

Mining Sector Engagement And Integrated Landscape Management

uploaded by Michael Muratha

Forests cover around 45 million hectares in Zambia, or over 60% of the total land area. The Government of Zambia is aware of the prevailing high deforestation rate in the country, which is estimated between 250,000 – 300,000 hectares per year, and one of the top 10 countries with the highest deforestation rates in the world. The main direct drivers of forest degradation is charcoal production and illegal timber extraction, while drivers of deforestation are primarily agricultural and human-settlement expansion (Turpie et al, 2015). Mining activities play a key role in driving these activities, though there are regional and historical differences in forest transition patterns. The Government of Zambia decided in 2009 to participate in REDD+ as an opportunity to directly address the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation (Zambia, 2015).

Production Durable De Cacao En Côte d’Ivoire : Besoins Et Solutions De Financement Pour Les Petits Producteurs

uploaded by Michael Muratha

MESSAGES CLEFS
◾L’agroforesterie pourrait être un élément essentiel de la réponse apportée à la situation
critique des forêts ivoiriennes. Elle permettrait également d’assurer le futur de la cacaoculture,
un secteur clef de l’économie du pays.
◾Pour cela, une définition nationale de l’agroforesterie incluant des éléments quantitatifs est
nécessaire pour orienter les investissements de manière cohérente avec les objectifs politiques
nationaux. Elle harmoniserait les objectifs socio-économiques et environnementaux.
◾Cette étude met en lumière plusieurs éléments pouvant guider le développement de cette
définition. Celle-ci devra prendre en compte les facteurs qui influencent les rendements
cacaoyers dans l’arbitrage entre coûts et bénéfices environnementaux et économiques
pour les différents acteurs de la chaîne de valeur cacao.
◾La transition vers l’agroforesterie peut entraîner un manque à gagner de plusieurs années.
Compte tenu de l’absence d’épargne des planteurs, des mécanismes de compensation de
ce manque à gagner lors des premières années de transition doivent être formulés.
◾La diversification des revenus du petit producteur à moyen terme grâce à l’introduction de
systèmes agroforestiers représente une opportunité d’amélioration de son niveau de vie et
une protection face à la fluctuation des cours du cacao en monoculture.

Economic and Financial Challenges to Scaling Up Sustainable Cocoa Production in Côte d’Ivoire Executive Summary

uploaded by Michael Muratha

KEY MESSAGES
◾Agroforestry can play a key role in addressing the critical situation of Ivorian forests. It would also ensure the future of cocoa farming, a key sector of the country’s economy.
◾To that end, a national agroforestry definition including quantitative elements is needed to guide investments consistently with national policy objectives. It would also harmonise socioeconomic and environmental objectives.
◾This study highlights several elements that can guide the development of this definition. The latter should consider the factors that influence cocoa yields in the arbitration between environmental and economic costs and benefits for the different actors in the cocoa value chain.
◾The transition towards agroforestry can lead to a shortfall of several years. Given the plantation owners’ lack of savings, compensation mechanisms for this shortfall in the first years of transition must be formulated.
◾The diversification of smallholder income in the medium term through the introduction of agroforestry systems represents an opportunity to improve his/her standard of living and protect against the fluctuation of cocoa prices in monoculture.

ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CHALLENGES TO SCALING UP SUSTAINABLE COCOA PRODUCTION IN CÔTE D’IVOIRE - executive summary

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

Agroforestry can play a key role in addressing the critical situation of Ivorian forests. It would also ensure the future of cocoa farming, a key sector of the country’s economy. To that end, a national agroforestry definition including quantitative elements is needed to guide investments consistently with national policy objectives. It would also harmonise socioeconomic and environmental objectives. 

This study highlights several elements that can guide the development of this definition. The latter should consider the factors that influence cocoa yields in the arbitration between environmental and economic costs and benefits for the different actors in the cocoa value chain. 

The transition towards agroforestry can lead to a shortfall of several years. Given the plantation owners’ lack of savings, compensation mechanisms for this shortfall in the first years of transition must be formulated. The diversification of smallholder income in the medium term through the introduction of agroforestry systems represents an opportunity to improve his/her standard of living and protect against the fluctuation of cocoa prices in monoculture.
