Escenarios de Deforestación Futura en Paraguay

El análisis histórico del uso y cambio de uso de la tierra, así como la preparación de escenarios espaciales futuros de deforestación y degradación del bosque servirán para identificar áreas prioritarias de acción, analizar los posibles impactos de políticas de desarrollo en la conservación de bosques y definir aquellas políticas de REDD+ que contribuyan a la estabilización de las fronteras de deforestación y que maximicen la suma de beneficios ambientales y sociales que se pueden generar a partir de un esquema REDD+.

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.

Dinámicas de Cambio de Uso de Suelo y Costos de Oportunidad en Panamá - Opciones para REDD+ y Sinergias con la Alianza por el Millón de Hectáreas

Este reporte presenta un análisis de las principales trayectorias de deforestación y degradación de bosques en Panamá, pérdidas y ganancias de carbono, y costos de oportunidad asociados. Se presenta también un análisis de sinergias entre REDD+ y la Alianza del Millón de Hectáreas, esta última una importante iniciativa del Gobierno de Panamá con capacidad de catalizar un cambio significativo en el paisaje rural del país. El reporte explora los ingresos brutos y netos de costos de oportunidad que REDD+ y la Alianza por el Millón de Hectáreas pudieran generar en concepto de pagos por resultados. El análisis toma todo el territorio panameño y se realiza principalmente desde una perspectiva social.

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

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.

Summaries of Information: How to Demonstrate REDD+ Safeguards are Being Addressed and Respected

Offers guidance to countries moving towards REDD+ implementation on the possible contents of summaries of safeguards information to be submitted to the UNFCCC. The brief responds to, and elaborates on, UNFCCC guidance on summaries of information, drawing on country approaches to safeguards developed since safeguards for REDD+ were adopted by the convention in 2010.

Technical Considerations for Forest Reference Emission Level and/or Forest Reference Level Construction for REDD+ under the UNFCCC

The aim of this document is to help countries seeking to develop a REDD+ Forest Reference Emission Level and/or Forest Reference Level (FREL/FRL) under the UNFCCC. The document provides a structural overview of UNFCCC requirements for FREL/FRL construction, summarizing UNFCCC guidance and translating it into elements needed for FREL/FRL construction. A description of possible advantages and risks associated with different options for each of these elements is added to provide some practical considerations to FREL/FRL construction.

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

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+

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.

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+.
