Conceitualização e Desenvolvimento do Sistema de Informação sobre as Salvaguardas de Cancun para Implementação de REDD+ no Brasil

No contexto da Convenção-Quadro das Nações Unidas sobre Mudança do Clima (UNFCCC, na sigla em inglês), as salvaguardas de Cancun foram acordadas pelas Partes como diretrizes que visam potencializar os impactos positivos e reduzir os impactos negativos relacionados à REDD+. REDD+ é um instrumento voluntário que provê incentivos através de pagamentos pelos resultados de mitigação no setor florestal por parte de países em desenvolvimento. O cumprimento dos requisitos definidos sob a UNFCCC (incluindo a submissão do sumário de informações e o estabelecimento de um sistema de informação sobre as salvaguardas de Cancun) condiciona o recebimento dos pagamentos por resultados. As informações sobre a implementação das salvaguardas de Cancun pelo Brasil serão disponibilizadas no Sistema de Informações sobre as Salvaguardas de REDD+ (SISREDD+). O SISREDD+ visa atender às necessidades de ampliação do controle social sobre o desenvolvimento de atividades de REDD+ no Brasil, servindo como referência, ao oferecer informação qualificada e coordenada com outras iniciativas. Esse sistema encontra-se ainda em fase de conceitualização, e seu desenvolvimento pelo Brasil se dará através de discussões com a sociedade, especialistas e partes interessadas.

Sistemas de información de las salvaguardas de REDD+: consideraciones prácticas de diseño

Mediante un proceso de consulta, y a partir de las visiones emergentes de países con experiencias tempranas con el desarrollo de un SIS, el Programa ONU-REDD se valió de talleres regionales de intercambio de conocimiento, así como de entrevistas personales durante el año 2015, para proveer respuestas preliminares a las preguntas hechas con frecuencia durante el diseño de un SIS: ¿cuál es la apariencia de un SIS? ¿Cómo diseñar uno? ¿Cuánto costará su diseño y su operación? Y ¿quién tendrá que financiar su implementación?

Expectations Paper COP21 Paris

The 2015 UN climate change conference in Paris (COP21) is a pivotal moment. Governments have set December 2015 as the deadline to agree on a new climate regime for 2020 onwards. This deal must give the world a fighting chance to avoid dangerous global temperature rises. Such an agreement needs to be fair, ambitious, and transformational. At the same time, COP21 provides an opportunity to showcase efforts that countries, the private sector, and civil society are making to combat climate change – and to accelerate and scale up these actions.

Sourcebook on Monitoring Biodiversity for REDD+

The Sourcebook published by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) in collaboration with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH seeks to bring clarity to the challenge of monitoring biodiversity for REDD+ while acknowledging the need to avoid adding further complexity. The Sourcebook emphasises a phased approach to monitoring based on availability of resources, and highlights that monitoring biodiversity as part of REDD+ can help countries to achieve both their biodiversity and climate commitments more cost-effectively. Contributing to the goal of achieving multiple benefits through REDD+, the Sourcebook seeks to answer three key questions: Why monitor biodiversity for REDD+? What to monitor? How to monitor? Drawing on the literature and contributions from a wide range of experts, the Sourcebook provides a simple framework for answering these questions. Summaries of key monitoring methods are presented with best practice guidance and practical case studies drawn from REDD+ and forest projects around the world.

REDD+ e povos indígenas

Povos indígenas estão entre os atores mais atingidos por efeitos indiretos da mudança do clima, tais como secas prolongadas, incêndios florestais, pragas e doenças. Além disso, o desmatamento em terras indígenas é menor do que em áreas com outros usos em uma mesma região, possuindo assim papel estratégico nas ações de REDD+. Troca de visões e experiências sobre REDD+ e sua interface com relação às políticas indígenas e indigenistas são de extrema importância para um delineamento eficiente de ações e garantia de seus co-benefícios. A Política Nacional de Gestão Territorial e Ambiental de Terras Indígenas (PNGATI) figura como importante marco legal para promover a proteção de recursos renováveis em terras indígenas, garantindo a qualidade de vida de suas populações.

My Guide - Know Your Rights Related to REDD+: A guide for indigenous and community leaders

The Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) has produced two complementary tools - ForestDefender and My Guide - that are geared towards safeguarding forests and sustainable livelihoods. These tools apply CIEL\'s "rights-based approach," which integrates respect for human rights into laws and policies. CIEL created these resources in response to specific requests from partners, local community members, indigenous peoples. They help translate relevant international law to the national level and empower lawyers, activists, and community leaders to defend their rights and their forests.

Salvaguardas de REDD+

De modo inédito, a Convenção Quadro das Nações Unidas sobre Mudanças do Clima (UNFCCC, em inglês) adotou, em sua decisão 1/CP.16, um conjunto de sete salvaguardas voltadas a REDD+ a serem adotadas e respeitadas pelos países, de modo a abordar os impactos diretos e indiretos, positivos e negativos de ações de REDD+. No Brasil, já existem ações e iniciativas no sentido de garantir e promover as salvaguardas de REDD+ e o país emprega esforços para constituir um sistema nacional de informação sobre como as salvaguardas serão tratadas e respeitadas, levando em conta as bases de dados já existentes.
