Exposure to Risks Posed by Unsustainable Land Use: What Can Burmese Banks Do?

Land use is the foundation of the Burmese economy. As the Burmese banking sector develops and expands, it will be exposed to new challenges associated with unsustainable land use and deforestation. This brief is the second in a two-part series; the first info brief examined how the Burmese banking sector could be exposed to risk generated through unsustainable land use and deforestation. This second part focuses on measures that Burmese banks can take to minimize any exposure to unsustainable land use and deforestation, while aligning their portfolio with sustainable and profitable businesses that are able to foster and reinforce a healthy functioning environment.

Scoping Private Sector Opportunities in Ethiopia: How to Stimulate Both Economic Development and REDD+ Implementation?

Scoping Private Sector Opportunities in Ethiopia: How to Stimulate Both Economic Development and REDD+ Implementation?

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 financial 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+.

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

uploaded by Michael Muratha

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

At the current rate of deforestation, Côte d’Ivoire is in the process of irretrievably losing all its forest cover by 2034. The country is the world’s largest producer of cocoa. The extension of farmland for cocoa cultivation is one of the main drivers of deforestation. Declining soil fertility, diseases, aging plantations and the lack of good agricultural practices have led small cocoa producers in Côte d’Ivoire to seek better yields on forest lands.

Inventory of Volume and Biomass Tree Allometric Equations for Southeast Asia: 2018 Update

The objective of this report is to provide an update of the GlobAllomeTree database with relevant tree allometric models for seven Southeast Asian countries - Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam. Models are obtained from both peer-reviewed scientific literature and national technical reports and validated using methods previously described by Birigazzi et al., (2015) through the Fantallometrik tool.

This report is part of the MRV series of allometric equation database reports of the UN-REDD Programme, together with those for Cambodia (Sarin et al., 2012), Viet Nam (Inoguchi et al., 2013), the United Republic of Tanzania (Vyamana and Sola, 2013), The Pacific (Poultouchidou, Monnier and Birigazzi, 2013), North America (Birigazzi et al., 2013), and Bangladesh (Akhter, Hossain and Birigazzi, 2013), South Asia (Sandeep et al., 2014) and China (Cheng, Gamarra and Birigazzi, 2014).
