  • What is “REDD”? (2005) Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries; What is “plus”? (Bali Action Plan 2007…) and the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks The final decision compromises on the divisive issue of market versus non-market based approaches, recognizing both approaches may be appropriate, dependent on the country’s circumstances. Market based approaches would likely mean the sale of rights to carbon stored in or sequestered by the forest, whereas non-market based approaches are more ambiguous. At the moment, non-market refers to grant-based finance for REDD+ readiness. However, it could come to include mechanisms that focus on the implementation phase, as well.The Forest Investment Program (FIP) is a targeted program of the Strategic Climate Fund (SCF), which is one of two funds within the framework of the Climate Investment Funds (CIF).  The FIP supports developing country efforts to reduce deforestation and forest degradation and promote sustainable forest management that leads to emissions reductions and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+).FACTUS$ 639 million...the amount of money that is pledged to the FIP. - Photo: Kimie Velhagen/CIF Admin UnitChanneled through the MDBs as grants and near-zero interest credits, FIP financing complements large-scale investments and leverages additional resources, including from the private sector, to:Promote forest mitigation efforts, including protection of forest ecosystem servicesProvide support outside the forest sector to reduce pressure on forestsHelp countries strengthen institutional capacity, forest governance, and forest-related knowledgeMainstream climate resilience considerations and contribute to biodiversity conservation, protection of the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities, and poverty reduction through rural livelihoods enhancements

    6. 6. The Forests DialoguePurpose• Established in 2000 by NGO and Business Leaders• Reduce conflict among stakeholders in the forest sector• International platform and process to discuss key SFM and conservation issues• Build mutual trust, enhanced understanding and commitment to changeStructure• Steering Committee• Secretariat• Network of Partners
    7. 7. How TFD Works TFD How Works
    8. 8. TFD InitiativesPriority SFM Issues• REDD+ Benefit Sharing• Food, Fuel, Fiber and Forests• Genetically Modified Trees• Free, Prior, and Informed Consent• Investing in Locally Controlled Forestry• Forests & Poverty Reduction and Rural Livelihoods• Intensively Managed Planted Forests• Illegal Logging and Forest Governance• Forests and Biodiversity Conservation• Forest Certification
    9. 9. Purpose of TFDs “Scoping”• Small group of invited participants are asked to share their experience and “weigh-in” on TFDs ability to positively address challenges• Intended to be an initial foray into a challenging, forest related issue• Listen, learn and share broad range of knowledge and experience• Not driving toward solutions…yet. Focus on key questions and opportunities for progress
    10. 10. TFD’s ProcessTFD Operates under the Chatham House Rule“Participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed".Ground Rules• Use mobiles and computers during breaks• No video• Pictures OK• Use Name Tents
    11. 11. TFD’s ProcessSpirit of Participation• Active listening• Constructive, solution oriented interventions• Participate as individual• Help define and own the outcomes• Facilitation “light”

    14. 14. Key FindingsStrategic Needs:• Alignment of REDD+ perspectives• Alignment with land-use strategies• Enhanced phased approachKey Issues:• Access to, use and availability of information and its use in capacity- building• Effectiveness of multi-stakeholder participation and engagement mechanisms and processes• Reform of policy and legislative frameworks, particularly those on tree and carbon rights• Integration of REDD-plus policies with broader land-use plans and other sector and development plans• Establishment of a revenue and benefits distribution system
    15. 15. Objectives of this Dialogue• Develop and understand the current state of REDD+ Benefit Sharing in several countries to identify the challenges of designing and implementing those mechanisms more broadly;• Build a community of practice among locally-rooted, well connected REDD practitioners to share experiences and to develop practical tools that support effective, efficient and equitable benefit sharing for REDD+;• Promote appropriate economic, policy and institutional arrangements at local, national and international levels to facilitate equitable and efficient delivery of REDD+ Benefit Sharing mechanisms.
