IIED at the COP18 UN climate summit | International Institute for Environment and Development | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it

"The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) will be at this year’s climate change talks, running a number of workshops and side events on topics such as communicating climate change and reducing emissions from deforestation while ensuring the equitable distribution of costs and benefits. The workshop What does it take to achieve pro-poor REDD+? will examine how and to what extent REDD+ governance can go beyond ‘doing no harm’ to improving the livelihoods of forest-dependent communities. It will also aim to answer what contribution bottom-up approaches can make to ensuring a more equitable distribution of the costs and benefits of REDD+?"

Should governments buy REDD+ credits to bail out projects?

Should governments buy REDD+ credits to bail out projects? | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it

Emissions from deforestation and forest degradation are said to account for 10-17 percent of global emissions

The Forests Dialogue's insight:

Steering Committee Member James Griffiths of WBCSD uses experiences from TFD Dialogue's to argue that in order to be successful, REDD+ needs to look beyond carbon and support other enabling conditions such as land tenure and clear resource rights.

Land tenure and fast-tracking REDD+; time to reframe the debate?

The Forests Dialogue's insight:

Sharing benefits of REDD+ has to be done under clear legal guidance on rights/responsibility of involved stakeholders. GCP's recent paper sheds light on what interim-actions policy makers can take when a wholesale reform on legal frameworks is difficult to achieve within a short time frame.

Reducing REDD Risks: affirmative policy on an uneven playing field | CIFOR

Reducing REDD Risks: affirmative policy on an uneven playing field | CIFOR | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it

"With the development of the global forest (carbon) conservation strategy such as Reduced Emissions from Degradation and Deforestation (REDD), which is ushering in accelerated forest commodification, poor people living in forests risk further marginalisation, exclusion and rights abuses. This article examines how forestry policy and implementation maintain double standards on this uneven playing field in a manner that continues to exclude the rural poor from the natural wealth around them. Poverty is not just about being left out of economic growth. It is produced by the very policies that enable some to profit – today from timber, firewood and charcoal, tomorrow from carbon. For REDD interventions to support poverty alleviation, forestry policies must be radically reworked to counterbalance widespread regressive policies and structural asymmetries."

Distributing the Benefits from REDD+ – The Case of Viet Nam

Distributing the Benefits from REDD+ – The Case of Viet Nam | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it

"Viet Nam has a rich history of benefit distribution systems for decentralised forest management. This experience is being used to help build a benefit distribution system that will be compliant with the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) programme being developed under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Participating in international capacity building programmes is also helping to design an effective system."

Pro-poor benefit distribution in REDD+ - IIED Publications Database

Pro-poor benefit distribution in REDD+ - IIED Publications Database | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it

Ensuring the poor or the most vulnerable sections of society benefit from REDD+ is key mainly to build both national and international legitimacy, and foster successful delivery of conservation and social objectives.

Equitable benefit sharing issues at a community or household level are overlooked in both academic and non-academic literature compared to distributional issues at international level. Therefore, this paper aims to look at some of the issues related to benefit distribution at village and household level.

Benefit Sharing and REDD+: Considerations and Options for Effective Design and Operation — Forest Carbon, Markets and Communities (FCMC)

Benefit Sharing and REDD+: Considerations and Options for Effective Design and Operation — Forest Carbon, Markets and Communities (FCMC) | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it
This report offers policy makers and stakeholders benefit-sharing design considerations that focus specifically on outcome-driven incentives—as opposed to benefit sharing for policy reforms or public sector programs—based on three different models: payments for services, managed funds, and collaborative resource management. Following a description of these models and cross-cutting considerations, this report provides a series of steps to help structure benefit-sharing arrangements for effective incentives to improve REDD+ outcomes.

Models For Incentivising Multiple Benefits: Options for the Lam Dong Provincial REDD+ Action Plan | REDD+ Community

Models For Incentivising Multiple Benefits: Options for the Lam Dong Provincial REDD+ Action Plan | REDD+ Community | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it

This paper presents a series of possible models for incentivising multiple benefits in subnational planning for REDD+, in the pioneering case study of Lam Dong province, Vietnam. Models include conditional REDD+ investments to support agro-forestry and supply chain developments in key agricultural commodities in Lam Dong, such as coffee. Potential is explored for REDD+ to support value-add initiatives in key commodities linked to deforestation and degradation, including bamboo. Consideration is also given to the role sustainable agriculture and timber standards can play in moving towards zero-deforestation agriculture.

 

This paper is an output of the project ‘Delivering Multiple Benefits from REDD+ in Southeast Asia’ (MB-REDD), implemented by SNV Netherlands Development Organisation. The MBREDD project is part of the International Climate Initiative, supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).

Investing in locally controlled forestry in Mozambique - IIED Publications Database

Investing in locally controlled forestry in Mozambique - IIED Publications Database | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it

This report summarises a strategic assessment of the potential of different options for investing in locally controlled forestry (ILCF), with a strong focus on local enterprise development. It looks in particular at the Province of Niassa in Mozambique. This assessment has its origins in mutual engagement by both SIDA and IIED in a dialogue process on ILCF. The process brought together more than 400 investors, local right-holders and forest experts from across eleven different locations, to advance understanding on ILCF. IIED’s long-standing support to the forest sector in Mozambique provided an opportunity to explore what options for ILCF existed in Mozambique, in part to inform Sweden’s new country strategy for Mozambique.

The Forests Dialogue's insight:

What is the potential for merging ILCF and REDD+?

The Forests Dialogue's insight:

There are existing tools that calculate benefits from carbon but non-carbon benefits measurement still remain challenging. The tools offered by VCS offers the foundation for caculating performance-based carbon benefits which are yet to be linked with the current broader objectives of REDD+.

Socio-economic conditions in REDD+ pilot areas: A synthesis of five baseline surveys - IIED Publications Database

Socio-economic conditions in REDD+ pilot areas: A synthesis of five baseline surveys - IIED Publications Database | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it

Along with several individual country reports on the socio-economic conditions of REDD+ pilot areas, IIED published a report with the overarching results from five baseline surveys on these conditions.  The report " is structured as follows: section 2 describes the pilot areas studied, section 3 gives an overview of household characteristics and livelihoods, section 4 discusses tenure systems and forest management, section 5 looks at perceptions of climate change and demands concerning REDD+, while the final section offers concluding remarks and reflections on the implications for REDD+."  A thorough analysis of these different socio-economic considerations is necessary in order to create and establish a system for benefit sharing under REDD+.

REDD+ benefit sharing in Brazil | REDD-net: Networking for equity in forest climate policy

REDD+ benefit sharing in Brazil | REDD-net: Networking for equity in forest climate policy | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it

In 2008, the government of Brazil started the first national level REDD program based on the
Amazon Fund, a grant funding mechanism. It is administered by the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) and supports efforts to reduce deforestation and promote conservation and sustainable forest use in the Amazon Basin. The fund solicits performance-based contributions from industrialized nations—these contributions are tied to a specific volume of emissions reductions in a given year, compared to a reference level.1 However, the emissions reductions achieved are not linked to carbon markets and funding providers do not receive ‘offset’ credits.

What we do - Keeping REDD+ clean: a step-by-step guide to preventing corruption

What we do - Keeping REDD+ clean: a step-by-step guide to preventing corruption | REDD+ Benefit Sharing | Scoop.it

This manual helps interested parties to understand and address corruption risks associated with forest carbon accounting – particularly REDD+ – programmes and strategies at the national level. Users will learn how to identify corruption risks and instruments to help address these risks within the development of national Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) action plans and strategies, and the implementation of REDD+ and other forest carbon projects. The manual’s scope does not extend to corruption risks at the international level. Rather it is deliberately focused on processes that occur in country, to facilitate the participation of national and local groups in informing national policy, planning and project implementation.
