This project framed to support the European Commission (EC) thematic programme for Environment and Sustainable Management of Natural Resources including Energy (ENRTP), specifically the 2011-2013 Strategy Paper & Multiannual Indicative Programme. The Strategy aimed to address problems, which have an effect on social and economic development, and on the lives of poor people including climate change, ecosystems degradation, global environmental governance and lack of access to, and security of energy supply. There was a need to reconcile the potential socio-economic and environmental costs and benefits of REDD+ investments with the demands of national and sub-national governments and local actors.
The project aimed to contribute to climate change mitigation by fostering livelihood security of poor forest-dependent communities and improved forest management in selected tropical forest countries. Specifically to provide REDD+ policymakers and practitioners with policy options and guidance to improve the design, development and implementation of REDD+ benefit sharing mechanisms. The evidence-based policy options then framed by experience and best practices in six prioritized study countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, South-east Asia and Latin America, but drawing on analysis of pilot schemes and lessons learned in a larger number of countries.
