Gender in REDD+ A handbook for grassroots facilitators

uploaded by RECOFTC The Center for People and Forests

The main objective of the handbook is to support local trainers and facilitators, who are already familiar with climate change and REDD+. It provides them with useful information on gender considerations for climate change and REDD+ related training and capacity development programs.

The handbook consists of a series of ten questions about different aspects of gender in the context of climate change and REDD+, and the answers. The questions have been selected based on ongoing discussions on gender integration in climate change and REDD+awareness-raising processes, in the project’s target countries.

Climate Change, Forests, and You: Q&A handbook

uploaded by RECOFTC The Center for People and Forests

This publication serves as a resource for community level facilitators to provide explanations about the basics of climate change and the role of forests. It aims to raise the awareness of grassroots stakeholders for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) through answering nine frequently asked questions. The  questions because they are frequently asked by grassroots communities, and local level facilitators should be able to answer them in the simplest way in order to deliver a consistent message throughout the project areas and countries.

Equity in climate change and REDD+: A handbook for grassroots facilitators

uploaded by RECOFTC The Center for People and Forests

This handbook is the result of collaboration between two regional RECOFTC projects – Grassroots Capacity Building for REDD+ in Asia (REDD+ Grassroots Project) and Grassroots Equity and Enhanced Networks in the Mekong Region (GREEN Mekong Program). The objective of this question and answer handbook is to support grassroots facilitators who are engaged in delivering training programs on promoting social equity in climate change mitigation, specifically in Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+). It is also a quick reference material for key stakeholders at provincial or district levels, particularly forestry officials, who are engaged in local and regional level learning processes for promoting equity in the development of climate change mitigation measures, and related forest management practices. Although several, more complex, publications on the approach of REDD+ are available and, more recently, material on REDD+ related equity issues have been published, the fact remains that grassroots stakeholders have limited access to concise and easy-to-read material on equity in REDD+. As a consequence, it remains a challenge for grassroots stakeholders to comprehend and use relevant information to promote equity at the local level. Moreover, the concept of social equity is complex, even abstract to some extent; simpler explanations that can be easily understood and articulated at the local level are necessary. Low capacity of grassroots stakeholders, including local civil society and non-government organizations (CSOs and NGOs), impedes them from effectively articulating their aspirations and perspectives to policy-makers, leaving them vulnerable to manipulation by vested interest groups. This question and answer (Q&A) handbook therefore aims to provide simple explanations on some of the key aspects of social equity in the context of forests, climate change and REDD+.

Governing the Forests: An Institutional Analysis of REDD+ and Community Forest Management in Asia
Jose Puppim de Oliveira, Tim Cadman, Hwan Ok Ma, Tek Maraseni, Anar Koli, Yogesh D. Jadhav and Dede Prabowo
ITTO and UNU-IAS, February 2013 | ISBN: ISBN 978-92-808-4542-6

This report aims to serve as a useful reference for policymakers, professionals and practitioners as they work to promote REDD+ in ways that tackle climate change and biodiversity loss but also respect concerns and listen to the voice of local stakeholders. It presents a background on REDD+, explores ways to link REDD+ to community forestry, and provides lessons learned and recommendations.

The report explores case studies from Bangladesh, India and Indonesia, focusing on successful examples of forest-based climate change mitigation at the community level, and the role of public-private partnerships for community forestry and REDD+. Each presents a different system of forest governance, with varying degrees of community management and success. In reviewing the case studies, the authors conclude that local systems will be a key to the successful outcome of any global efforts for carbon payment schemes in developing countries. Linking community forestry and REDD+ can deliver multiple benefits from climate change mitigation and adaptation, livelihood development and strengthened sustainable forest management (SFM). Criteria for success identified in the report include: linking community forests to international regimes, including those aimed at addressing climate change, promoting biodiversity conservation and sustainable use, as well as building strong local institutions for forest management; connecting carbon management to local forest management practices and economic activities; establishing community benefit sharing; and clarifying land tenure and resource use rights. The report also emphasizes the importance of strong monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) systems, not only as it relates to carbon accounting and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, but also with regard to the participation of interested parties in decisions regarding the sharing of benefits arising from payments for ecosystem services, and overall forest management.

Training Manual on Gender and Climate Change, GGCA, 2009

uploaded by Gaya Sriskanthan

In 2007, IUCN, UNDP, UNEP and WEDO recognized the need for a coordinated strategy among global institutions working on gender and climate change. The result was the establishment of the Global Gender and Climate Alliance (GGCA). The primary goal of the GGCA is to ensure that climate change policies, decision making, and initiatives at the global, regional and national levels are gender-responsive. The GGCA has developed this training manual to increase the capacity of policy and decision makers so that efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change are gender-sensitive.Though very broad in scope, the manual includes a short module on the gender issues relevant to carbon fixing/sequestration and specifically discusses REDD+.
