REDD+ knowledge sharing event: moving from readiness to performance-based: lessons learnt from 13 countries
Background: The Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) is undertaking a Global Comparative Study on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (GCS‐REDD). This multi‐country study aims to generate knowledge and practical tools to support efforts to reduce forest emissions in ways that are effective, efficient and equitable and that generate co‐benefits such as poverty alleviation and biodiversity conservation.
Module 1 of the GCS-REDD+ project aims to understand how power and politics play out in national REDD+ policy arenas and enable or hinder the required transformational change. It analyses how national processes that formulate and implement REDD+ related policies and measures reflect diverse interests at all levels. The work is currently conducted in 14 countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America including Indonesia.
Purpose and objectives of the workshop: The overall purpose of this workshop is to enable knowledge sharing across the Vietnam REDD+ key stakeholders at the national level, representing government agencies, CSOs, private sectors, donors, academia that form part of these studies, and to identify lessons relevant for the different stakeholders.
The specific workshop objectives are:
Understanding the latest developments of REDD+ in Vietnam
Understanding if the introduction of REDD+ lead to transformational change, to a new mode of governance to enable the implementation of REDD+ or is it just another project? And what will this mean for effectively reduced emissions from avoided deforestation?
