Checklist for Gender-Responsive Workshops (also in SP/FR

uploaded by Elizabeth Eggerts

In its efforts to support its partner countries and development practitioners in meaningfully integrating a gender perspective into their policies and institutional commitments for REDD+, the UN-REDD Programme has developed a Checklist for Gender-Responsive Workshops. It is a simple, concise and easy to use two-page checklist that provides concrete guidance for workshop organizers in designing and implementing gender-responsive REDD+ workshops at the regional, national or local levels. This, in turn, can help all women and men REDD+ stakeholders in equitably and meaningfully participating in national and sub-national REDD+ action. The checklist is available on the UN-REDD Workspace in English, French and Spanish.

Forestry and Macroeconomic Accounts of Nigeria: The Importance of Linking Ecosystem Services to Macroeconomics (Ex summary)

uploaded by Griet Ingrid Dierckxsens

The purpose of this study is to analyze the economic value of Nigeria’s forest resources and demonstrate some policy instruments that would alleviate pressure on these natural forest systems. The results show a rapid and severe rate of deforestation, results from a range of cumulative effects fundamentally driven by the immediate availability of woody biomass in the form of timber, fuelwood and construction timber; and the opportunity to acquire land for significantly higher agricultural returns. Together, these drivers comprise a considerable economic incentive for deforestation.

The total value of forest ecosystem services based on valuations done between 2000 and 2015 is approximately 1,000,000 Naira/ha. Although value is derived through forest use, the unsustainable exploitation thereof and subsequent deforestation results in a net loss to the economy of Nigeria. 

These losses will continue for as long as there is a disconnect between the cost-benefit decisions made by land holders, users and other indirect role players, where the net benefit of deforestation is highly positive; and the cost-benefit ratio at a national scale, which, as demonstrated above, is highly negative.

Thus, to address the unique deforestation challenges faced by Nigeria, this study not only uses accounting and valuation of natural capital, but also makes significant progress towards designing and testing policy instruments that goes to the heart of the country’s deforestation problem

The analysis shows that the contribution of forests to the economy of Nigeria is underestimated in the national accounts.

Furthermore, the study demonstrates three economic policy instruments that seek to incentivise landholders to pursue sustainable forest management. These proposed policy options are not intended to be a comprehensive final set of options for Nigeria, but are rather used to demonstrate how these options could work, what they would cost, to what extent they would curb deforestation and what the relative costs and benefits to the economy of Nigeria would behe three preliminary policy options tested are: (i) Carbon trade; (ii) Certified plantation forestry and (iii) Agroforestry.

Forest Ecosystems in the transition to a green economy and the role of REDD+ in the United Republic of Tanzania

uploaded by Beth Mbote

The aim of this report was to assess how deforestation affects the economy of the United Republic of Tanzania, both by looking at the limited ecosystem goods and services currently reflected in GDP and by looking at the effects on the economy if the full suite of forest ecosystem services are taken into account.The findings show that investment in the forestry sector has a disproportionately positive impact on the incomes of rural households in comparison to stimulating output from other sectors, meaning that investment in forestry could contribute to alleviating poverty. Taking these findings together, this report presents a solid case for Tanzania to integrate REDD+ policies into key economic sectors such as energy, agriculture, livestock, industries, transport and water to address the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation while identifying how the implementation of REDD+ can be part of Tanzania’s broader economic and development strategy, as the country plans to move towards REDD+ results-based actions that could lead to results-based payments and then towards Green Economy pathways to sustainable development and poverty eradication in Tanzania.

Benefits of Forest Ecosystems in Zambia and the role of REDD+ in a Green Economy Transformation

uploaded by Mihaela Secrieru

The main objective of the study was to assess the economic value of Zambia’s forest ecosystem services. The  study estimates that, when ecosystem services provided by forests are accounted for, forests make a direct contribution to the national economy equivalent to about 4.7% of gross domestic product (GDP), which rises to 6.3% with the application of multiplier effects.
