A key challenge to the design and implementation of REDD+ and other strategies aimed at transforming land-use trajectories is the sheer range of actors involved in policy and implementation at multiple levels. This workshop is aimed at providing clear information and tools across a range of relevant topics to policymakers and practitioners.
An integrated, landscape-level approach is urgently needed to assess the carbon trade-offs and other effects of various – often competing – land-use decisions. The elements of functional, effective climate policies need to be integrated across levels. These include good governance, equitable benefit distribution and the assessment of strategies’ success in meeting the goals of emissions reduction, improved livelihoods and biodiversity conservation.
The objective of this event is to support decisions made by forest-related policy makers and practitioners in Peru at all levels of governance, by providing science-based knowledge, information, analysis and tools that contribute to effective and efficient reduction of carbon emissions with equitable impacts, as well as poverty reduction, biodiversity and livelihood benefits.
Themes to be covered:
Global findings of a 5-country study (Peru, Indonesia, Mexico, Tanzania and Vietnam) on multilevel governance and land use decisions
Monitoring, measuring, reporting and verification (MMRV) for REDD+ and the land use sector
Impact assessment of REDD+ on forest and people, analysis of subnational initiatives in Peru
Reconciling policy and practice in the co-management of forests in indigenous territories in Peru
REDD+ policies and progress in 13 countries
Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives as a solution to mainstream decision-making on land-use change
Software CarboScen as a tool to estimate carbon in dynamic landscapes
