Progress against the Warsaw Framework for REDD+

Targeted support to Tunisia with its focus on tenure issues and a needs assessment on institutional assessment and NFMS. The CNA focuses on MRV needs, a topic that Tunisia has already progressed on and wishes to use as an opportunity to exchange with other countries from the region. The targeted support provides support to other pillars of readiness (tenure and institutional arrangements), assessing not only needs but making proposals to progress on these issues. A national inception workshop was held in June and included representatives from Algeria, Morocco and Lebanon to foster regional collaboration.

National REDD+ Strategy/Action Plan
The mentioned workshop was an opportunity to discuss the Voluntary Guidance on Tenure and their relationship with REDD+. A draft tenure assessment report was submitted for review. An institutional context analysis was undertaken, which produced specific recommendations on political, institutional and legal aspects as well as on the involvement of the private sector and financing. An inventory of forest land titles in the archives continued throughout the period in order to get a more accurate estimate of forest land under the jurisdiction of the Forestry Department.

National Forest Monitoring System (NFMS)
The capacity and needs associated with the establishment of a NFMS were assessed in 2015 (report will be finalized in April 2016), aiming at providing a technical framework for the Tunisian NFMS as well as elements for its institutional inception. The activity originates from a detailed analysis of stakeholders’ prerogatives and potential contribution of the NFMS. Most of the proposed NFMS modules are based on existing administrative structures and existing data and systems.
