From Tree Measurement to National Forest Monitoring Systems: The Use of Allometric Equations to Estimate Forest Resources

uploaded by Maddie West

From Tree Measurement to National Forest Monitoring Systems: The Use of Allometric Equations to Estimate Forest Resources

Allometric equations are important tools for quantifying forest resources. The UN-REDD Programme promotes the use of these equations for estimating national carbon stock and carbon stock changes as part of the development of their national forest monitoring systems (NFMS) as required under REDD+. The Programme supports countries around the globe to develop equations and define methodologies for their application by providing expert guidance and country-level capacity building.

Mapping Multiple Benefits of REDD+ in Paraguay: Using Spatial Information to Support Land-Use Planning

The government of Paraguay joined the UN-REDD Programme (United Nations Collaborative initiative on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) in developing countries) in 2008, with the aim of implementing REDD+ in alignment with the country’s conservation and development objectives, and developing capacities for integrated environmental management, with particular attention to forest-dependent communities and indigenous peoples.

Inventory of Allometric Equations for Estimating tree Biomass: A Database for China

uploaded by Denise Martínez

Inventory of Allometric Equations for Estimating tree Biomass: A Database for China

This report introduces an allometric equation database developed specifically for China that complements the current database for Asian countries. The database was prepared following the tutorial given by Baldasso, Birigazzi et al. Equations were compiled according to different categories to provide an overview of the allometric equations available in the literature. A comparison of the equations using field inventory data was given using statistical software R to present the application of the allometric equations in the specific context.

REDD+ and Adaptation: Identifying Complementary Responses to Climate Change

Mitigation is crucial for limiting the extent of climate change and thus the severity of its impacts on society and ecosystems. However, even with our best mitigation efforts, there will still be changes in the climate system due to inertia.

Emerging Approaches to Forest Reference Emission Levels and/or Forest Reference Levels for REDD+

uploaded by Dave

Emerging Approaches to Forest Reference Emission Levels and/or Forest Reference Levels for REDD+

The UNFCCC has defined FREL/FRLs as benchmarks for assessing each country’s performance in implementing REDD+ activities. The purpose of this document is to inform countries seeking to develop FREL/FRLs for REDD+ with an overview of different approaches to FREL/FRLs and an analysis showing some emerging trends. The approaches presented are in most cases in a preliminary design phase and were developed and proposed by countries in the context of demonstration activities.

Policy Brief 6: Tenure & REDD+: Developing Enabling Tenure Conditions for REDD+

uploaded by Christabel Clark

Tenure & REDD+: Developing Enabling Tenure Conditions for REDD+

The tenure of land, forests and other natural resources has crucial implications for REDD+ goals, planning and implementation processes. Tenure is a decisive factor in the identification of stakeholders whose rights, territories and livelihoods are affected by REDD+ activities. It is important to understand the multiple and complex tenure systems at play in forest areas because these are central to establishing who to reward for contributing to REDD+ and how. Tenure is the basis upon which to create effective benefit-sharing systems. The domestic laws and policies framing forest tenure systems also play a major part in the achievement of REDD+ goals: their provisions may result in either reduced or increased deforestation. While tenure-related risks will affect the implementation of REDD+, REDD+ activities may also reduce or exacerbate land conflicts by changing the value of forests.

REDD+ and the 2020 Aichi Biodiversity Targets: Promoting Synergies in International Forest Conservation Efforts

Recognizing the multiple functions of forest, Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) have both initiated efforts to address the impacts of forest loss and degradation. Through the CBD, countries have agreed a set of “Aichi Biodiversity Targets”, including ambitious targets for the conservation, sustainable use and restoration of forests. Through the UNFCCC, countries are discussing a financial mechanism to promote REDD+.
