Developing subnational REDD+ action plans: manual for facilitators

uploaded by Valerie Wayte

Published by the International Centre for International Mountain Development (ICIMOD),  this manual has been prepared for facilitators working with planners and multiple stakeholders in the development of subnational plans for REDD+ action. It is based on the idea that subnational REDD+ planning is essential for operationalising a REDD+ national strategy. Using pilot subnational REDD+ action plan experiences in Vietnam and Nepal over the period 2014-2016, it is written in a prescriptive style, but the methodology is generic and can be adapted to the country context and requirements.

Free, Prior, and Informed Consent in REDD+: Q&A handbook

uploaded by RECOFTC The Center for People and Forests

 This publication has been developed to provide support to local trainers and facilitators who are engaged in delivering REDD+, climate change related training, and who already have a basic understanding of these subjects.

This question and answer handbook is based on the principle that indigenous peoples and other local communities have the right to self-determination and to give or withold their free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) to externally proposed projects, which may affect their livelihoods, access to land resources, and socio-cultural values and norms. The ten questions and answers discussed in the handbook were developed in response to a growing need to raise awareness about the social and environmental safeguards of REDD+. 

These questions are frequently asked by participants during training and capacity development at the local level.

Gender in REDD+ A handbook for grassroots facilitators

uploaded by RECOFTC The Center for People and Forests

The main objective of the handbook is to support local trainers and facilitators, who are already familiar with climate change and REDD+. It provides them with useful information on gender considerations for climate change and REDD+ related training and capacity development programs.

The handbook consists of a series of ten questions about different aspects of gender in the context of climate change and REDD+, and the answers. The questions have been selected based on ongoing discussions on gender integration in climate change and REDD+awareness-raising processes, in the project’s target countries.

Climate Change, Forests, and You: Q&A handbook

uploaded by RECOFTC The Center for People and Forests

It aims to raise the awareness of grassroots stakeholders for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) through answering nine frequently asked questions. The  questions because they are frequently asked by grassroots communities, and local level facilitators should be able to answer them in the simplest way in order to deliver a consistent message throughout the project areas and countries.

Free, Prior, and Informed Consent in REDD+: Guidebook

uploaded by RECOFTC The Center for People and Forests

 The principle that indigenous peoples and local communities have a right to give or withhold their Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC) to developments affecting their resources is not new. However, experience using FPIC in REDD+ implementation is still limited in the Asia-Pacific region. Using relevant examples from a range of locations and sectors, this guidebook provides a basis for developing country-specific guidance on employing FPIC in REDD+ processes.

Through the adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (2008) the legal status of the right to FPIC has been strengthened. In the ongoing climate change negotiations it has gained prominence through the discussions around REDD+. GIZ and RECOFTC regard the guidance that this publication offers as an initial attempt that will need to be reviewed and adapted as more experience with REDD+ implementation and FPIC is gathered. In particular, we hope that it will serve as a basis for developing country-specific guidance. This would allow adapting recommendations to the specific legal situation of indigenous peoples and local communities with regard to rights to their resources, which differs widely from country to country in the region.

Respecting the right to FPIC is, by definition, a locally and culturally specific process in which the affected communities themselves determine the steps involved. It is therefore not possible to produce a universally applicable ‘how to do it’ guideline. This publication provides a basis for more specialized information and training materials, targeted at specific audiences in appropriate languages. It will be progressively adapted as the ‘rules of REDD+’ evolve.

Putting Free, Prior, and Informed Consent into Practice in REDD+ Initiatives

uploaded by RECOFTC The Center for People and Forests

The principle that indigenous peoples and local communities have a right to give or withhold their Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC) to developments affecting natural resources is not new. However, experience using FPIC in REDD+ implementation is still limited in the Asia-Pacific region, and there are few materials that explain and train practitioners in its concepts and practice. There is still subjective understanding of the terms and requirements of FPIC, influenced by both cultural interpretations and interests. 

To address this resource gap, RECOFTC is pleased to announce the publication of a new Training Manual on Putting Free, Prior, and Informed Consent into Practice in REDD+ Initiatives. This manual, developed with financial and advisory support from the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and Norad, serves as a practical tool for trainers and facilitators to improve understanding of FPIC among stakeholders at all levels. 

This manual has been developed by Karen Edwards and Ronnakorn Triraganon with substantial inputs from Jim Stephenson, Dr. Chandra Shekhar Silori and other members from the Capacity Building and Technical Services Team at RECOFTC – The Center for People and Forests. 

It is organized into several sections based on five learning blocks – each available for download separately – providing a quick and easy way for trainers to access relevant reference materials. 

The manual complements the guidelines on Free, Prior, and Informed Consent in REDD+: Principles and Approaches for Policy and Project Development released by RECOFTC and GIZ.
