Knowledge Sharing in Ethiopia

29 May 2017, ILRI

Objective:
CIFOR has been implementing the Global Comparative Study on REDD+ (GCS REDD+) project since 2009. Through comparative studies of REDD+ implementation around the world, the GCS REDD+ project takes stock of international, national and subnational REDD+ experiences to identify challenges and opportunities in designing and implementing REDD+ policies and projects. The first phase of CIFOR’s REDD+ research focused on overall design issues and aimed to build a strong research-based knowledge. The second phase focused on generating new knowledge to inform and facilitate process of transformational change within the REDD+ policy arena, and understanding performance of REDD+ policy processes, measures and practices. In the third phase, CIFOR aims to support REDD+ decision makers by assessing REDD+ impact and providing critical analysis of REDD+ in terms of effectiveness, efficiency and equity (3Es). Under this third phase of GCS REDD+, in Ethiopia, we plan to conduct the first round of PNA survey.

This event is part of the Global Comparative Study on REDD+ (GCS REDD+) project which CIFOR has been implementing since 2009. The project takes stock of international, national and sub-national REDD+ experiences to identify challenges and opportunities in designing and implementing REDD+ policies and projects through comparative studies of REDD+ implementation in thirteen countries around the world including Brazil, Vietnam, Cameroon, Nepal and Peru (https://www.cifor.org/gcs/).

The first phase of research focused on overall design issues and aimed to build a strong research-based knowledge. The second phase centered on generating new knowledge to inform and facilitate processes of transformational change within the REDD+ policy arena, and on understanding the performance of REDD+ policy processes, measures and practices.
This current third phase of GCS REDD+ aims to support REDD+ decision makers by assessing REDD+ impact and providing critical analysis of REDD+ in terms of effectiveness, efficiency and equity (3Es), and includes Myanmar and Guyana as additions to the study.
