Economic and Financial Challenges to Scaling Up Sustainable Cocoa Production in Côte d'Ivoire - Executive Summary

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

Economic and Financial Challenges to Scaling Up Sustainable Cocoa Production in Côte d'Ivoire - Executive Summary

Agroforestry can play a key role in addressing the critical situation of Ivorian forests. It would also ensure the future of cocoa farming, a key sector of the country’s economy. To that end, a national agroforestry definition including quantitative elements is needed to guide investments consistently with national policy objectives. It would also harmonize socio-economic and environmental objectives. This study highlights several elements that can guide the development of this definition. The latter should consider the factors that influence cocoa yields in the arbitration between environmental and economic costs and benefits for the different actors in the cocoa value chain.

Using Spatial Analysis to Support REDD+ Land-Use Planning in Papua New Guinea: Strengthening Benefits for Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services and Livelihoods

Some of the analyses presented here were developed by national technicians in joint working sessions. This contributed to building national capacity in spatial analysis, access to relevant datasets and the use of decision support tools. As more and better data becomes available, the analyses presented here could be updated to provide better support for planning, including at a sub-national scale. We encourage follow-up work to build on the analyses presented here and to capitalize on the enhanced in country capacity for spatial analysis for evidence-based decision-making.

Escenarios de Deforestación Futura en Panamá

La generación de escenarios de deforestación es imprescindible para entender áreas de alto riesgo y que meritan intervenciones tempranas. Si se asume que la implementación plena de un programa REDD+ que alcance todo el territorio del país puede tardar varios años en materializarse, entonces la secuencia geográfica de intervenciones, es decir, donde se debe implementar primero, toma gran valor. El avance de la deforestación en los próximos 5 a 10 años puede ser importante y por consiguiente también el daño ecosistémico que esta trae aparejado.

Integrated Land-Use Planning for REDD+: Lessons from Combining Spatial Analysis and Participatory Approaches at the Sub-National Level in Viet Nam

A National REDD+ Strategy or Action Plan is required for a country to be able to receive results-based payments under the UNFCCC. This strategy should set out the actions, often referred to as “policies and measures” (PAMs), and governance arrangements to ensure the achievement of a country’s REDD+ objectives.

Benefits and Risks Tool (BeRT) v2.1: Workshop Kit. Facilitators’ Guide

uploaded by Lera Miles

Benefits and Risks Tool (BeRT) v2.1: Workshop Kit. Facilitators’ Guide

The UN-REDD Programme Benefits and Risks Tool (BeRT) supports REDD+ countries to assess the social and environmental benefits and risks associated with candidate Policies and Measures (PAMs) and analyse how existing policies, laws and regulations (PLRs) could ensure that the REDD+ safeguards agreed under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) are addressed and respected. This facilitators’ guide supports the application of the BeRT in a workshop setting. Building on version 2.0 of the original Excel-based tool, the guide and accompanying worksheets provide targeted advice for the documentation of possible PAMs, the identification of those PAMs’ associated benefits and risks, and the analysis of PLRs that address the safeguards. The guide is aimed at facilitators of benefits and risks assessment or PLR analysis workshops, and is designed as a reference to help plan and execute such workshops. The guide also provides links to workshop materials. Work undertaken to meet requirements of specific funding mechanisms (e.g. the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility’s Strategic Environmental and Social Assessment (SESA) or experiences from REDD+ pilot projects or forest-related projects and initiatives pre-dating REDD+ may provide useful inputs to this exercise.

Beneficios Múltiples de REDD+ en Costa Rica: Análisis Espaciales para Apoyar la Toma de Decisiones

Más allá de la mitigación del cambio climático, la puesta en práctica de REDD+ puede fortalecer y/o promover beneficios sociales y ambientales, siempre y cuando sus políticas, acciones y actividades (PAMs, por sus siglas en inglés) sean diseñadas adecuadamente. Estos beneficios son conocidos como beneficios múltiples y pudieran hacer que la implementación de REDD+ en Costa Rica sea más atractiva para las partes interesadas relevantes (ej. actores con acceso al PPSA), especialmente si, al mismo tiempo, los riesgos asociados a esta iniciativa son evitados o mitigados. Por esta razón, el país se encuentra evaluando los beneficios múltiples que pudieran ser potenciados por la ejecución de la Estrategia Nacional REDD+ (EN-REDD+) y su Plan de Implementación. Este esfuerzo favorece el abordaje de las salvaguardas sociales y ambientales establecidas por la Convención Marco de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático.

Mapping to Support Land-Use Planning for REDD+ in Kenya: Securing Additional Benefits

uploaded by Miriam Guth

High resolution.

Low resolution version (~4mb) available here.

Very high resolution version (~115mb) available here.

REDD+ can contribute to more policy goals than to climate change mitigation alone. The priority of the Government of Kenya is to implement environmentally and socially sustainable land-use and forest policies. All REDD+ activities will be designed with a focus on additional benefits such as improving biodiversity conservation and the livelihoods of forest dependent peoples.

The Government of Kenya has identified a need for better access to comprehensive spatial data and maps on natural vegetation and land use, the biodiversity in relevant ecosystems, the ecosystem services provided by forest, and the geographical patterns of deforestation, forest degradation and their drivers. This information can inform spatial planning and design of REDD+ strategy options.

The purpose of this report is to support REDD+ planning in Kenya through the development of maps on the distribution of drivers of deforestation and forest degradation, potential additional benefits of implementing REDD+ activities, and different implementation possibilities for REDD+ strategy options.
