Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+) is enshrined in the Paris Agreement and has been adopted by many countries as a way to promote climate and development benefits from forests. After ten years of experimentation, the novel feature of REDD+ – the prospect of offering large-scale, results-based finance to developing countries as a reward for performance – is beginning to materialize.

CIFOR and partners have been implementing a Global Comparative Study on REDD+ (GCS REDD+) since 2009. Through research and engagement at international, national, subnational and local levels, we ensure that policymakers and practitioner communities have access to – and use – the information, analyses and tools needed to design and implement effective, efficient, and equitable REDD+ policies and actions.

In this series on online workshops that addresses CIFOR’s research of the past decade on REDD+ in countries in Asia, Africa and South America, speakers will tackle the current status and impact of REDD+ on the ground, opportunities and challenges for implementing REDD+ policies, the new global and national contexts, as well as policies and practices needed to enhance REDD+’s effectiveness, efficiency, and equitable outcomes.

Agenda

Transforming REDD+ in Indonesia

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+) is enshrined in the Paris Agreement and has been adopted by many countries as a way to promote climate and development benefits from forests. After ten years of experimentation, the novel feature of REDD+ – the prospect of offering large-scale, results-based finance to developing countries as a reward for performance – is beginning to materialize. Indonesia will receive USD 56 million from the Norwegian Government as part of the Indonesia-Norway Letter of Intent for 11.2 million tCO2e avoided from reduced deforestation in 2017 and USD 103.8 million from the Green Climate Fund based on 20.3 million tCO2e emissions avoided during the period from 2014-2016. To what degree can such results-based payments (RBP) prompt the land-use policies and actions needed for transformational change?

GCS-REDD+ knowledge sharing events in Vietnam

Vietnam is currently developing its Vietnam Forestry Development Strategy, 2021- 2030, with vision to 2050. A key objective of this new Strategy is to align national priorities with global forestry outlook and international commitments as well as develop innovative sustainable financing mechanism for forestry sector. Since 2010 to 2020, CIFOR has closely worked with Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), civil society organizations, scientific communities and practitioners to co-produce new data, tools, information and analysis and inform policy makers these knowledge to design and implement effective, efficient and equitable forestry policies. More specifically, CIFOR’s 10 years research aims to share global lessons learnt in implementing innovative forest policies such as Reduce Emission from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) as well as supporting MARD in designing, implementing and monitoring national Payment for Forest Environmental Services (PFES).

Analyser et transformer la REDD+ en République démocratique du Congo (RDC)

Durant les dix dernières années, la République Démocratique du Congo (RDC) a progressivement travaillé à mettre en place un cadre pour la réduction de ses émissions issues de la déforestation et de la dégradation forestière (REDD+) dans la perspective des objectifs de la Convention cadre des Nations Unies sur les changements climatiques (CCNUCC). De nombreux efforts ont été déployés pour identifier les facteurs de la déforestation et la dégradation des forêts, ainsi que les réformes du cadre légal et institutionnel qui sont nécessaires pour atteindre ces objectifs. Plusieurs projets ont été  mis en œuvre et de nombreux autres sont en cours. Ils testent les options stratégiques qui ont été négociées par les parties prenantes de la REDD+ pour parvenir à la formulation et la mise en œuvre d’une stratégie nationale REDD+ qui rend compte de l’ensemble des situations sur le territoire national. La révision de la stratégie nationale cadre REDD+, envisagée pour l’année 2022, vise à tirer le meilleur des opportunités et apporter des solutions aux défis observés dans la mise en œuvre de la REDD+ en RDC entre 2009 et 2020. Cependant, les études et les données qui pourraient servir à une évaluation rigoureuse de l’impact de la REDD+ en RDC continuent de manquer.

REDD+ en Perú: Lecciones de una década de investigación y trabajo colaborativo

Ciclo de sesiones digitales sobre REDD+

Casi el 60 % del territorio nacional del Perú corresponde a áreas forestales, y se estima que un 46 % de los GEI emitidos en el país provienen de la deforestación. A nivel mundial, REDD+ se ha posicionado como una de las estrategias más populares para la mitigación del cambio climático y Perú no ha sido la excepción. Alrededor del mundo se han implementado más de 400 proyectos REDD+, y, aunque no hay registro oficiales públicos, Perú cuenta con aproximadamente 30 proyectos REDD+.
