This week representatives from a range of government, civil society and community organisations are meeting in Myanmar to review the country’s first Summary of Information on the safeguards.

A Summary of Information is one of the three key requirements related to safeguards under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Countries participating in REDD+ must provide a summary of how safeguards have been addressed and respected during the implementation of REDD+ in order to be eligible for results-based payments.

Guided by a national Technical Working Group on Stakeholder Engagement and Safeguards (TWG-SES), Myanmar has made substantial progress in developing its national safeguards approach, designing its Safeguards Information System (SIS) and preparing its first Summary of Information through a participatory process. Following the workshop, the draft Summary will also be available on the Myanmar REDD+ website for a review period where comments and suggestions can be submitted by email.
