2016 - International Research Symposium on Valuation of Forest Ecosystems and their Services

(26)

The theme of the symposium is the Valuation of forest ecosystem services for better-informed decision making and market-based mechanisms promoting sustainable conservation management of forest biodiversity.

Objectives – 

  •        To synthesize the available knowledge base on ecosystem services of forests and their valuation,
  •        To introduce emerging  global trends in ecosystem valuation (qualitative and/or quantitative) to the local context,
  •        To identify gaps in knowledge and research needs related to ecosystem valuation and make recommendations towards upgrading the knowledge base with a view to 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+.

Full report: Carbon pools and multiple benefits of mangroves in Central Africa - Assessment for REDD+

uploaded by Mihaela Secrieru

 

The assessment finds that the mangroves of Central Africa which are found in Cameroon, Gabon, the Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Sao Tome and Principe, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Angola, could be amongst the most carbon-rich ecosystems in the world. Each hectare of cleared pristine mangrove is estimated to release 1,299 tonnes of C02 per year. However, until mangroves are included in the national definition of forests, many countries will be unable to access carbon incentives, improved governance, jobs and a range of other benefits under the global REDD+ programme.

Resumen Ejecutivo: Los depósitos de carbono y los múltiples beneficios de los manglares de África Central - Evaluación para REDD +

uploaded by Mihaela Secrieru

 

En el informe se confirma que los manglares son uno de los ecosistemas más ricos en carbono del planeta y se proporcionan las bases para su gestión, conservación y recuperación sostenibles. Asimismo, se subraya su gran valor ecológico y económico y las amenazas que se ciernen sobre la región. En el documento se insta a elaborar una definición nacional de los bosques que incluya explícitamente a los manglares a los países que todavía no dispongan de ella, con el objeto de allanar el camino para que estos ecosistemas puedan incluirse en las estrategias nacionales para la reducción de emisiones debidas a la deforestación y la degradación forestal (REDD+). Más allá de las posibilidades de conseguir financiación adicional, la iniciativa REDD+ puede catalizar la acción para proteger los manglares mediante un diálogo más intenso entre las diversas partes interesadas y un marco de políticas integrales y enfoques multisectoriales con el que hacer frente a los factores desencadenantes de la deforestación.
