WWF REDD+ Country Profiles
Forest loss is having severe and detrimental effect on the global climate, biodiversity and the ability of local communities to develop and sustain long-term livelihoods. The CarBi project will make a positive contribution to all three of these issues. A main outcome will be a 15% increase in the income of 400 households with benefits to 5,000-7,000 people from 100 villages across the region.
WWF's REDD+ Country Profiles provide a snapshot look at the progress of a country to design and implement a REDD+ national strategy and its components.
Developed in partnership with WWF's Forest and Climate Initiative, WWF-Germany and each relevant country's WWF office, the profiles examine key components of REDD+ in each country, including:
Setting the goals for REDD+, building the legal institutional arrangements to undertake it, and ensuring that all major REDD+ stakeholders can participate in its governance. This includes:
- Institutional arrangements
- Legal framework
Tracking REDD+ Progress: Successful REDD+ implementation will depend on the country’s ability to track and report on the state of the forests and REDD+ progress against a reference level. This includes:
Getting REDD+ Done: Achieving REDD+ that is (a) undertaking intervention strategies that address the country drivers of deforestation and (b) mobilizing the financial resources to pay for it.
- Addressing drivers of deforestation
REDD+ for People and Nature: Ensuring that the country REDD+ strategy (a) has in place adequate safeguards to protect vulnerable social groups and preserve tropical forest environments and that (b) beyond doing no harm, they also offer new income and livelihood opportunities to indigenous peoples,
local communities and the rural poor.
- Social and environmental safeguards
- Benefit sharing
Each profile also highlights WWF planned REDD+ related activities in the country through 2015.
