Tanzania methodological brief

uploaded by Lisen Runsten
This methodological brief has been produced as part of a UN-REDD Programme project to support Tanzania in the development of multiple benefits maps to inform REDD+ safeguards policies, conducted between
January and August 2013. The project included two working sessions in Tanzania of five weeks in total, covering mapping work and enhancement of national spatial datasets, using open-source GIS software (QGIS, SAGA and GRASS). This methodological brief outlines the technical approaches used in the working sessions.

Using spatial information to support decisions on safeguards and multiple benefits for REDD+ in Tanzania

uploaded by Denise Martínez

REDD+ has the potential to contribute to achieving more policy goals than

climate mitigation alone. In Tanzania, REDD+ is expected to deliver multiple
benefits, whose nature and extent will depend on the location and type of
REDD+ activity implemented. These benefits include sustainable use of forest
resources, biodiversity conservation, poverty alleviation, maintenance of
forest dependent communities’ rights, and improved community livelihoods.
The REDD+ safeguards agreed under the United Nations Framework
Convention on Climate Change are intended to guide REDD+ implementation
to avoid adverse effects to people and the environment, and to ensure
multiple benefits.
During the last years, the Tanzanian Forest Service has produced a unique
set of forest, socioeconomic and governance related data and maps from
32 000 field inventory plots and interviews with 3500 households and 1100
key informants, which among other sources of data have been used for the
production of analysis and maps in this publication.
Maps can help to increase understanding of the spatial distribution of
such potential benefits, and support decision-making on where and how
REDD+ might be implemented. The maps presented in this brochure were
developed to support Tanzania’s implementation of the REDD+ safeguards,
and planning for multiple benefits from REDD+. Themes include natural
forest, biodiversity, ecosystem services, drivers of deforestation and forest
degradation, and potential zones for implementation of REDD+ activities

Making Biodiversity Safeguards for REDD+ Work in Practice

uploaded by Emily Dunning

UNEP-WCMC has developed operational guidelines to assist countries in implementing biodiversity safeguards for REDD+. At the most recent meeting of the UNFCCC (Cancun, Dec 2010), the Parties to the Convention agreed a full set of social and environmental safeguards. With support from DEFRA (UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), we have formulated a set of guidelines that focus on implementing the biodiversity safeguards. These guidelines address both the potential risks to biodiversity presented by REDD+, and the many opportunities for REDD+ to benefit biodiversity conservation.

Everything Is Connected: Climate and biodiversity in a fragile world

uploaded by Emily Dunning

This publication brings together eight original articles by experts to tackle head on some of the most difficult questions facing us all: How a stable climate and a productive biosphere can be secured together. Why this is an opportunity for green growth. And how a closer partnership between the multilateral environmental agreements, in particular the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Framework Convention on Climate Change, can help. It also brings together the experience of one of the world’s megadiverse countries in tackling these challenges: Brazil. The publication focuses on one of the most promising mechanisms for mitigating climate change: Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD).
