Guidelines on sustainable forest management in drylands of Ethiopia

uploaded by Maryia Kukharava

This document provides information on the national context on dry forests and practical management guidelines adapted to the Ethiopian context. The goal is to fill the information gap, which can allow decision-makers to better understand the true value of dry forests at the national level and take appropriate action.

Guiding principles for sustainable bamboo forest management in Benishangul-Gumuz Regional state (BGRS)

uploaded by Maryia Kukharava

he document acts as a support to decision makers (e.g. regional authorities) for developing a sustainable bamboo forest management plan for Benishangul-Gumuz Regional state (BGRS). The document explores ways to link bamboo production to the market and the private sector.

Scoping private sector opportunities in Ethiopia: How to stimulate both economic development and REDD+ implementation?

uploaded by Alice Van der Elstraeten

Ethiopia is one of the fastest growing economies in Africa. Agriculture (subsistence and commercial) employs 80% of the population, contributes to 50% of the gross domestic

product and provides 60% of export revenues, highlighting the importance of the sector for Ethiopia’s economy. At the same time the country is experiencing ongoing

deforestation, with agriculture being the principal driver of deforestation in Ethiopia. There are 2 national strategies - the climate-resilience green economy (CRGE) and the

second growth transformation plan (GTP2) - to shift the country to a more sustainable development paradigm while growing to middle-income status by 2025. Ethiopia has ample indigenous bamboo resources: the largest area of bamboo in Africa with 1 million hectares with a potential of 3 million hectares. Based on desk research and

interviews, this report concludes that investments in bamboo carry the highest potential to restore, protect or recover forests as Ethiopia committed in 2014 to restore 15 million

hectares by 2030. In doing so, there may be possibilities to harness the potential of both international development finance institutions as well as domestic finance institutions, given that

Ethiopia is at the moment an underbanked country with little domestic or international funding flowing to forest-friendly projects that contribute to REDD+.

The contribution of forests to national income in Ethiopia and linkages with REDD+ (Full report)

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

Amharic version: https://www.unredd.net/documents/global-programme-191/multiple-benefits/studies-reports-and-publications-1364/16533-the-contributions-of-forests-to-national-income-in-ethiopia-and-linkages-with-redd-amharic.html 

 

OBJECTIVES:

In 2014, the Government of Ethiopia requested the UN-REDD Programme to
support the country in assessing the contribution of forest ecosystems to national
income in the context of the national REDD+ process. The primary objective of the
project was to establish the contribution of Ethiopian forests to national income3
(GDP) by assessing the following.
◾ Value added of the forestry sector: The annual contribution of the production
of forest ecosystem goods and services to GDP attributed to the forestry industry in the Ethiopian System of National Accounts (ESNA).
◾ Contribution of forest ecosystems to other sectors: The annual contribution of the production of forest ecosystem goods and services to GDP attributed
to other industries in the ESNA (for example, the contribution of forest-based
insect pollinators to the value added of the agriculture industry or the contribution of protected areas to the tourism industry).
◾ Non-market benefts: the annual contribution of forest ecosystems to
non-market income in Ethiopia (which is conceptually beyond the scope of
national accounting and therefore not included in GDP).
The contribution of forest ecosystems to national income is seen as a vital element
of the case for forest conservation in Ethiopia. Prior to this study, no full assessment of the income derived from forest-derived goods and services had been
undertaken in the forestry sector or other sectors. The only fgure available had
been the offcial ESNA estimate (MOFEC, 2015) of the contribution of the forestry
industry to GDP (3.8% in 2012-13). By assessing the full contribution of forests to
market and non-market income, a more complete picture of their economic importance emerges.

Le rôle des forêts dans la transformation vers une économie verte en Afrique

uploaded by Mihaela Secrieru

 

Ce rapport présente une analyse du rôle des forêts d'Afrique dans l'avenir des économies vertes du continent. Il dénonce des réalités sombres et problématiques pour les populations, les marchés et les écosystèmes d'Afrique du fait de la déforestation et de la dégradation constantes des forêts. Toutefois, il offre aussi un aperçu du potentiel positif des forêts alors que les pays s'orientent vers des économies vertes durables et efficaces dans l'utilisation qu'elles font des ressources.

S'appuyant sur des études de cas issues de l'Afrique du Sud, du Cameroun, de l'Éthiopie, du Ghana, du Kenya et du Mozambique, ce rapport se penche sur les succès et les échecs, les obstacles et les opportunités pour les forêts d'Afrique. Il en ressort clairement que la prise de décisions démocratique et le leadership local sont cruciaux pour tirer des avantages durables de ce capital naturel. L'accès au financement et à des investissements verts sera aussi impératif.

Les décideurs feraient bien de s'inspirer des prescriptions rationnelles de ce rapport pour lier la planification REDD+ à une économie verte et à des
investissements durables. Dans bien des pays, la transformation vers une économie verte durable sera tributaire d'un développement des forêts résolument tourné vers l'avenir – ces forêts qui sont l'un des écosystèmes les plus importants et les plus riches d'Afrique.

The role of forests in a green economy transformation in Africa

uploaded by Mihaela Secrieru

This report provides an analysis of the role of Africa’s forests in the continent’s future green economies. The report points to stark, problematic realities for people of Africa, markets and ecosystems from continuing deforestation and forest degradation. It also offers a glimpse of the positive potential of forests as countries shift toward resource-efficient and sustainable green economies.


Drawing on cases studies from Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique and South Africa, this report looks at successes and failures, obstacles and opportunities for forests in Africa. What is clear is that democratic decision-making and local leadership are crucial to enjoy sustainable benefits of this natural capital. Access to financing and green investment will also be imperative.


Policymakers would do well to draw on this report’s recommendations for linking REDD+ planning with a green economy and sustainable investments. The transformation to a sustainable green economy in many countries will depend on the forward-looking sustainable management of forests - one of Africa’s most bountiful and important ecosystems.

PES incentives for smallholders to avoid deforestation: lessons learned and factors for success

uploaded by Chloe-Mae Kilby

 

A review for the SHARP partnership of 28 documented PES projects that have involved working with smallholders in tropical forest countries to protect watersheds, conserve biodiversity and minimise deforestation. The report provides a useful inventory of smallholder-focused projects and offers a close look at the design and outcome of seven case studies in Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa and southeast Asia. The authors ask what lessons can be learned for future PES schemes but also for other smallholder-oriented initiatives. http://www.sharp-partnership.org/updates/lessons-learned-from-smallholder-payment-schemes
