Framework of the SIS in Ghana, draft, September 2018 (English)

uploaded by Dave

The development of a Safeguard Information System (SIS) is one of the three safeguard-
related requirements 1 outlined by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate
Change (UNFCCC) and is linked to the delivery of results-based payments 2 .
Although there are no official guidelines on how countries are supposed to set up a system
for providing information on how safeguards are addressed and respected (commonly known
as a Safeguard Information System or SIS), Parties to the UNFCCC have agreed on some broad
guidance on the characteristics of a SIS.

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.
