This project aims to assist regional leaders in REDD+ readiness, with good prospects of near-term financing, meet multiple safeguard requirements and be eligible for results-based payments. This will be achieved at the national level through facilitating country-led safeguard approaches and designing of safeguard information systems (SIS), and at the subnational level through mainstreaming of safeguards into low-emissions development planning and piloting participatory forest monitoring approaches. In addition, the project has a global component, aimed at developing state of the art knowledge products and facilitating south to south knowledge and learning exchanges.
The project will be implemented in three regional hub countries - Ghana (Africa), Peru (Latin America) and Vietnam (South East Asia) over a three year period (2016-2018). The project is part of the International Climate Initiative, funded and supported by the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
