UN-REDD Global Info Brief: REDD+ Safeguards Information Systems: Moving from design to operation

The SIS is a required element for REDD+ implementation, agreed by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and a prerequisite for results-based payments under this Convention and the Green Climate Fund. This Info Brief summarizes key considerations for putting a SIS into operation, based on initial country experiences. It aims to support the developing country government institutions, and their key partners in the design of the SIS or the actions to make it operational. Considerations are presented around four functional responsibilities, which are compile and manage, analyze and interpret, assure quality and validate, and disseminate and use safeguards information.

Step-by-step tutorials: Using spatial information to support decisions on safeguards and multiple benefits for REDD+

GIS training materials and tools have been developed for use in planning REDD+ activities that deliver multiple benefits. These resources are designed to assist technical staff to undertake spatial analysis to identify areas suitable for specific REDD+ policies and measures, and which are likely to yield multiple benefits. Materials have been developed for both QGIS (open-source) and ArcGIS software, according to the needs of individual partner countries. The materials continue to be developed and tested with country partners, with tutorials shared in different languages as available.

Boreal Forests in a Changing Climate - Case Study: Mongolia

Boreal forests stretch across the northern reaches of the globe, from Europe to Russia to North America. They are the world’s largest biome, and make up 29% of the world’s total forest area, as well as 32% of global land-based carbon stocks. Compared with tropical forests, they store twice as much carbon per hectare, much of it in the soil. The Northern Hemisphere’s frozen soils and peatlands hold an estimated 1,700 billion tonnes of carbon – four times more than humans have emitted since the industrial revolution, and twice as much as is currently in the atmosphere. That means these forests play a key role in mitigating climate change – but at the same time, they are intensely affected by it: boreal forests are warming faster than any other forest biome. Read this info brief to find out more about the boreal forests in Mongolia, which are among the world's most important. Boreal forests stretch across Mongolia’s north. They cover 14.2 million hectares – 9 percent of the country – and provide important benefits for this developing nation, as well as an important source of livelihood.

Economic and Financial Challenges to Scaling Up Sustainable Cocoa Production in Côte d'Ivoire - Executive Summary

Agroforestry can play a key role in addressing the critical situation of Ivorian forests. It would also ensure the future of cocoa farming, a key sector of the country’s economy. To that end, a national agroforestry definition including quantitative elements is needed to guide investments consistently with national policy objectives. It would also harmonize socio-economic and environmental objectives. This study highlights several elements that can guide the development of this definition. The latter should consider the factors that influence cocoa yields in the arbitration between environmental and economic costs and benefits for the different actors in the cocoa value chain.

Escenarios de Deforestación Futura en Panamá

La generación de escenarios de deforestación es imprescindible para entender áreas de alto riesgo y que meritan intervenciones tempranas. Si se asume que la implementación plena de un programa REDD+ que alcance todo el territorio del país puede tardar varios años en materializarse, entonces la secuencia geográfica de intervenciones, es decir, donde se debe implementar primero, toma gran valor. El avance de la deforestación en los próximos 5 a 10 años puede ser importante y por consiguiente también el daño ecosistémico que esta trae aparejado.

Beneficios Múltiples de REDD+ en Costa Rica: Análisis Espaciales para Apoyar la Toma de Decisiones

Más allá de la mitigación del cambio climático, la puesta en práctica de REDD+ puede fortalecer y/o promover beneficios sociales y ambientales, siempre y cuando sus políticas, acciones y actividades (PAMs, por sus siglas en inglés) sean diseñadas adecuadamente. Estos beneficios son conocidos como beneficios múltiples y pudieran hacer que la implementación de REDD+ en Costa Rica sea más atractiva para las partes interesadas relevantes (ej. actores con acceso al PPSA), especialmente si, al mismo tiempo, los riesgos asociados a esta iniciativa son evitados o mitigados. Por esta razón, el país se encuentra evaluando los beneficios múltiples que pudieran ser potenciados por la ejecución de la Estrategia Nacional REDD+ (EN-REDD+) y su Plan de Implementación. Este esfuerzo favorece el abordaje de las salvaguardas sociales y ambientales establecidas por la Convención Marco de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático.

Infobrief: Nesting: Reconciling REDD+ at multiple scales (An Asia-Pacific perspective) 

This policy brief examines the key issues that countries face in making sure REDD+ efforts at various scales contribute to the same goal – supporting sustainable development, while reducing overall emissions (or increasing removals) from forests to mitigate climate change. As nesting is still a nascent concept, lessons from its early experiences are not yet widespread. The objective of this paper is to share some real-world examples from the Asia-Pacific region to inspire other countries developing their REDD+ efforts to best reconcile local actions across the landscape that can contribute to national mitigation.

Women’s Inclusion in REDD+ in The Philippines Lessons from Good Practices in Forest, and Other Natural Resources Management Sectors

This study is a part of the Joint Initiative of the USAID-funded LEAF Project, WOCAN, and the UN-REDD Programme to investigate practical entry points for women’s inclusion in Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) policies and practices. It explores the current status and implementation of policies and practices related to gender equality in forestry and other natural resource management sectors in the Philippines, and their relation to REDD+ initiatives. An effort was made to identify the elements that prevent the inclusion of women in REDD+ in the Philippines, as well as the factors that enable their inclusion in policies and practices. Given the emerging and unfolding state of REDD+, an exploration of gender issues in REDD+ was tied to the overall status of women’s inclusion in the broader NRM sector. Data for this study was collected using desk reviews, key-informant interviews and field site interactions at Atimonan, Quezon. The early findings were then presented through a national dialogue for further discussion and validation, which led to identification of practical entry points and key recommendations for improving effectiveness of natural resource management and REDD+ through greater inclusion of women in forest policies and programs.

Business Case for Mainstreaming Gender in REDD+

Promoting a human rights-based approach to development requires UN-REDD partner institutions to ensure that their support for REDD+ promotes good practices and does not perpetuate or exacerbate existing inequalities between women and men. Toward this end, “the Business case for Mainstreaming Gender in REDD+” demonstrates why the unique role of women in protecting and managing forests— and ensuring their equal access to resources—is an important component for a more equitable, effective and efficient REDD+. Through this effort we hope to establish a greater base of evidence that will help policy-makers, practitioners and others understand the critical influence that gender-differentiated needs, uses and knowledge have on REDD+ policy and programming on the ground.
