Using spatial information to support decisions on safeguards and multiple benefits for REDD+ in Tanzania

uploaded by Denise Martínez

 REDD+ has the potential to contribute to achieving more policy goals than

climate mitigation alone. In Tanzania, REDD+ is expected to deliver multiple
benefits, whose nature and extent will depend on the location and type of
REDD+ activity implemented. These benefits include sustainable use of forest
resources, biodiversity conservation, poverty alleviation, maintenance of
forest dependent communities’ rights, and improved community livelihoods.
The REDD+ safeguards agreed under the United Nations Framework
Convention on Climate Change are intended to guide REDD+ implementation
to avoid adverse effects to people and the environment, and to ensure
multiple benefits.
During the last years, the Tanzanian Forest Service has produced a unique
set of forest, socioeconomic and governance related data and maps from
32 000 field inventory plots and interviews with 3500 households and 1100
key informants, which among other sources of data have been used for the
production of analysis and maps in this publication.
Maps can help to increase understanding of the spatial distribution of
such potential benefits, and support decision-making on where and how
REDD+ might be implemented. The maps presented in this brochure were
developed to support Tanzania’s implementation of the REDD+ safeguards,
and planning for multiple benefits from REDD+. Themes include natural
forest, biodiversity, ecosystem services, drivers of deforestation and forest
degradation, and potential zones for implementation of REDD+ activities

REDD+ Tanzania Capacity Needs Assessment Policy Brief

uploaded by Ralf Ernst

The Government of Tanzania, through the UN-REDD National Programme and in cooperation with UNDP, conducted a Capacity Needs Assessment (CNA) of government institutions for REDD+ at Central, Regional, District and Local levels in Tanzania. The CNA also proposes a five-year Capacity Development Plan for the years 2012 – 2017 and several intervention packages for REDD+ capacity development at the different levels of government  that allow for short term gains as well as long term strategic objectives to be achieved.

REDD Opportunity Scoping Excercise - Forest Trends - July 2010

uploaded by Estelle Fach

The REDD+ Opportunities Scoping Exercise (ROSE) is a tool for classifying and prioritizing potential REDD+ sub-national activities and for assessing critical constraints to project development, especially those associated with the legal, political, and institutional framework for carbon finance.  The ROSE tool was developed and refined during 2009 in the course of conducting case studies in Tanzania, Uganda, and Ghana. The tool has two main stages: a 2-3 day key informant or expert workshop, and an analysis of policy, legal and institutional constraints by a small in-country team following the workshop. In the first stage, workshop participants work through a set of steps aimed at identifying high potential REDD ‘project types’ and the main legal, political, and institutional ‘gaps’ constraining development of the identified project types. The ROSE tool is therefore relevant to the development of REDD+ at both the sub-national and national levels; in the three case study countries, the ROSE studies have provided key inputs to national ‘REDD+ Readiness’ processes. This report explains the ROSE methodology and process, and summarizes key findings of the three case studies, including a brief description of the high potential project types identified, and the main gaps or constraints to realising that potential.   Contacts: Michael Richards or Jacob Olander
