The purpose of this consultancy is to help meet international safeguard requirements and ensure the social and ecological sustainability of REDD+ in Bhutan.

The project will achieve this by Identifying and assessing the possible social and environmental impacts that may arise from the implementation of Bhutan’s REDD+ Strategy, and more specifically, the Policies and Measures [PaMs] that will be proposed; by developing an Environmental and Social Management Framework [ESMF] to address, mitigate and minimise the identified potential negative impacts arising from the proposed PaMs; by designing a Safeguard Information System [SIS], and by providing inputs and guidance on the design of Bhutan’s Grievance Redress Mechanism [GRM].
