Myanmar is launching work on the development of its national approach to the REDD+ safeguards, with a workshop being held in Nay Pyi Taw this week.
The Nigeria National Safeguards Working Group is pleased to release the: Cross River State REDD+ Safeguards Principles & Criteria: Assisting the design of REDD+ policies and measures.
This Methodological Brief provides guidance, concrete entry points and good practice examples to help UN-REDD Programme partner countries achieve gender-responsive REDD+ action across the REDD+ policy cycle, including in design, implementation and monitoring.
To protect against potential risks and promote benefits from REDD+, seven safeguards must be supported throughout the implementation of REDD+ actions. These are known as the "Cancun safeguards", and were agreed at the 16th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate held in Cancun in 2010 (COP16).
Many UN-REDD partner countries are developing safeguards approaches and information systems with UN-REDD Programme support. To help share the latest information on country progress, this page includes links to workshop reports and materials (especially from 2015 onwards) as well as more formally published outputs. Spatial analysis products whose goals include safeguard support are found on the Multiple Benefits Country Resources Hub. A wealth of global knowledge products are also available.
Cross River State, with more than 50% of Nigeria’s remaining tropical high forests, has been the focus of REDD+ activity in the country. Within the context of the National REDD+ Readiness Programme, a recent priority for Cross River has been safeguards. UN-REDD Programme Safeguards Coordinator Steve Swan speaks with Edu Effiom, Chairman of the National Safeguards Working Group, to learn about their experiences engaging in a multi-stakeholder process to meet international requirements on REDD+ safeguards.

Papua New Guinea (PNG) has been a leading proponent of REDD+ under the UNFCCC, jointly tabling an agenda item on “Reducing emissions from deforestation in developing countries: approaches to stimulate action” in 2005 with Costa Rica. Since 2010 PNG has been implementing REDD+ readiness activities including the development of a national forest monitoring system (NFMS), a forest reference emission level (FREL)/Forest Reference Level(FRL), a safeguards system and a national REDD+ strategy; as well as raising awareness among a diverse range of stakeholders including land owners, government ministries, CSOs, NGOs and the private sector. PNG has received REDD+ readiness support from a number of sources including the UN-REDD Programme, the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), JICA, the EU, GIZ, UNDP and FAO.
The Watershed Management Division, Department of Forests and Park Services, Ministry of Agriculture and Forests would like to hire an international consultant to prepare the Strategic Environmental and Social Assessments (SESA) report, Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) and develop Safeguard Information System (SIS) for REDD+ Program of Bhutan.
In this regard, we would like to invite proposals for carrying out the above tasks, to commence by January 2017. The proposal should be submitted to Ms. Sigyel Delma, officiating Chief Forestry Officer, WMD at . The deadline for applications is November 29, 2016 at 14.00 hrs, Bhutan Standard Time.
Como parte de la Serie de Webinars Regionales organizada por el Programa ONU-REDD en Latinoamérica y el Caribe, 13 países de la región tuvieron la opoturnidad de conocer las experiencias de Colombia, Chile, Ecuador y México sobre enfoques nacionales de salvaguardas y avances hacia la construcción de sistemas de información de salvaguardas durante Agosto de 2016.
Bhutan has finalized a roadmap for developing its country approach to REDD+ safeguards. The roadmap sets outs important steps for the development of Bhutan’s approach to safeguards and identifies roles and responsibilities for these actions. It also takes stock of existing platforms and systems that should inform the country approach and establishes a timeline and milestones for its development.
En diversos espacios se continúa consolidando la construcción participativa de enfoques en torno al abordaje de las causas de deforestación en el Pacífico colombiano y la formación de capacidades con actores nacionales sobre salvaguardas sociales y ambientales.
Flyers with information on enhancing social and environmental benefits of REDD+ in Panama and Paraguay through spatial planning are now available. By helping to identify areas with potential to deliver multiple social and environmental benefits from REDD+ policies and measures, as well as those under pressure from deforestation or suitable for forest restoration, spatial information can help to show where REDD+ actions could potentially deliver benefits in addition to climate change mitigation. These flyers illustrate how spatial analyses in Panama and Paraguay can be used to support the development of national strategies and implementation plans for REDD+.
Cette publication technique présente un premier aperçu mondial par pays des perspectives, expériences et enseignements tirés pouvant être utilisés pour améliorer les processus et les pratiques de sauvegarde à l'avenir.
Esta recurso técnico presenta una sinopsis general inicial sobre las perspectivas nacionales, las experiencias y las lecciones aprendidas que podrían utilizarse para conformar procesos y prácticas de salvaguardias más adecuados en el futuro.
Cette ressource technique – la première d'une nouvelle série de publications techniques consacrées à l'information pratique en matière de conception de systèmes de sauvegarde des données (SSD) conformes aux exigences de la CCNUCC – traite des questions suivantes: Qu'est-ce qu'un SSD? Comment concevoir un SSD? Quel est le coût de la mise en place et de l'exploitation d'un SSD?
The UN-REDD Programme is pleased to announce the launch of a new set of safeguards Technical Resources. The first publication in this series; 'REDD+ Safeguards Information Systems: Practical Design Considerations', addresses the following questions: What does a SIS look like? How do I go about designing one? How much will it cost to both build and to operate? The second publication; 'Country Approaches to REDD+ Safeguards: A Global Review of Initial Experiences and Emerging Lessons' presents an initial global overview of country perspectives, experiences and lessons learned that may be used to inform better safeguards processes and practices in the future. Accompanying info and technical briefs for this series are also available.
