REDD Pro Poor
04 July 2012 | Project description
ii) National decision makers both within and beyond the forest sector will benefit from more comprehensive and broad-based preparedness for future REDD initiatives;
iii) Broader civil society that actively advocates for forest, land-use and rural poverty issues within the target countries will be secondary beneficiaries;
iv) UNFCCC negotiators and regional forest authorities ones are included as beneficiaries to the extend they will receive inputs for negotiations and planning from the results of the Action;
v) More generally, the global community stands to benefit from the development of pro-poor approaches to REDD inasmuch as it increases the likelihood that land-use based emissions reduction make a significant, immediate and long lasting contribution towards climate change mitigation.
- Knowledge and analysis of how ongoing forest governance reform processes and other pro-poor institutional and policy arrangements could be better deployed to support and reinforce synergies between REDD initiatives, equitable and sustainable forest management and reform of tenure and land-use rights are collated.
- Bottlenecks that increase costs and risks or that prevent benefits from natural resource markets (including payments for ecosystem services) reaching the rural poor identified, and innovative opportunities to circumvent these in future REDD mechanisms reviewed and promoted.
- Innovative best-practice guidance for local pro-poor REDD governance, finance and benefit sharing developed, applied, assessed and improved.
- Key stakeholder groups in target countries, including government, private sector, NGOs, forest dependant communities and women know and fully understand the governance requirements and benefit distribution options available to make post-2012 REDD initiatives pro-poor and have the capacity to convert this knowledge into policy and programmatic action.
- Key and relevant findings in the governance requirements and benefit distribution options available to make post-2012 REDD initiatives pro-poor are collected and prepared for feeding climate change negotiations at regional and international level.
