An introduction to CIFOR's global comparative study on REDD+ (GCS-REDD+)

  1. 1. An introduction to CIFOR’s global comparative study on REDD+ (GCS-REDD+) Maria Brockhaus Myanmar – February 2017
  2. 2. Challenges in national REDD+ Among others ...  Coordination across sectors and administrative levels (in decentralized systems)  Tenure, financing systems, benefit sharing and participation  MRV systems and capacity  Scope, scale, permanence, leakage  Sovereignty and ownership over process and reform(s)  Capacity and political will to address the drivers of forest carbon change (driven oftentimes by interests of powerful elites), access/availibility to data on sectorial contributions to DD, and identifying an effective policy mix  needs more than single sectors and single research disciplines
  3. 3. THINKING beyond the canopy CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study (GCS-REDD+) 2009-2020 • To support REDD+ policy arenas and practitioner communities with - information - analysis - tools • so as to ensure 3E+ outcomes: - effectiveness - efficiency - equity and co-benefits
  4. 4. M1: political science, macro economics; political economy approach M2: socio-economics; counterfactual approach to impact assessment M3: biophysics, natural science; identifying methods and approaches to MRV M4: combining governance and human geography; landscape (jurisdictional) approach M5: innovative knowledge sharing as central project design element
  5. 5. THINKING beyond the canopy CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study (GCS-REDD+) new research countries phase III: Myanmar, Guyana
  6. 6. GCS theory of change: Transformational change versus business-as-usual Transformational change: ‘a shift in discourse, attitudes, power relations, and deliberate policy and protest action that leads policy formulation and implementation away from business as usual policy approaches that directly or indirectly support deforestation and forest degradation’ (Brockhaus and Angelsen, 2012; Di Gregorio et al, 2012 in ‘Analysing REDD+’)
  7. 7. Examples of transformational change In the context of REDD+, transformational outcomes can be i) changes in economic, regulatory and governance frameworks, including the devolution of rights to local users; ii) removals of perverse incentives, such as subsidies and concessions that serve selective economic interests and stimulate deforestation and forest degradation; and iii) reforms of forest industry policies and regulations that effectively reduce unsustainable extraction
  8. 8. Seeing REDD+ through 4I’s: institutions, interests, ideas, information (Brockhaus and Angelsen 2012)
  9. 9. THINKING beyond the canopy How do the 4 Is hinder or enable change (1)  Institutional stickiness: Formal power typically rests with the ‘stickiest’ organisations – those with enough influence to resist change – while new institutions and actors are ignored or remain isolated (e.g. colonial rules, Ministries responsible for natural resources)  Interests: State’s interest in social and economic welfare can fall short if lack of autonomy from interests that drive deforestation and degradation (e.g. rent seeking, fraud, collusion and corruption practices inside the bureaucratic system)
  10. 10. THINKING beyond the canopy How do the 4 Is hinder or enable change (2)  Ideas: discourse affects policy making, they frame the problem and present a limited set of choices of what is ‘reasonable’ or what is put forward as ‘the possible’ (e.g. REDD+ benefits for those who contribute to efficiency and effectiveness, versus benefits for those who have moral rights based on equity considerations)  Information: Facts, rather than speaking for themselves, are selected, interpreted, and put in context in ways that reflect the interests of the information provider (e.g. reference level setting)
  11. 11. THINKING beyond the canopy Research for CHANGE – from where, towards where, and why? what enables , what hinders, how to measure power and politics discourses/ beliefs/ logics/ perceptions incentives behaviour/LUC International National Local Multilevel/multiscale Decision making State/Private/CSO (policies, MRV, gender, adaptation, FPIC, etc) Economic instruments and arrangements Benefit sharing, PES, 0- Def, etc Framing of policy problems (and solutions) REDD+, resilience and adaptation, 0-def, sustainability commitments, etc
  12. 12. GCS policy component in detail
  13. 13. Approach: investigating politico-economic constraints to effective national REDD+ strategies (Brockhaus, M., and M. Di Gregorio. 2012. A brief overview: Component 1 on national REDD+ policies and processes. CIFOR)  Institutional Context and Path-Dependencies (country context studies) (Brockhaus, M., M. Di Gregorio and S. Wertz-Kanounnikoff. 2012. Guide for country profiles: Global Comparative Study on REDD (GCS-REDD))  Ideology, Policy Discourses and Coalitions for Change (media and actor stance analysis) (Di Gregorio, M., Price, S., Saunders, C. and Brockhaus, M. 2012. Code book for the analysis of media frames in articles on REDD. CIFOR)  Policy Network Structures: Constraints and Opportunities for effective policy design (policy network analysis) (see special issue in Ecology and Society 2014)  REDD+ policy process assessment (e.g. Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA)) (Korhonen-Kurkin et al. 2014, Sehring et al. 2013, Brockhaus et al. 2015, 2016)
  14. 14. Comparative Analysis (Combined Country Cases) Why: to identify enabling conditions, progress with REDD+ transformational change, inform safeguards and other emerging processes, and to assess REDD+ policy impact How: comparative analysis of individual research elements (country profiles, media analyses, etc), and full country cases, qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) , analysis of data from other modules or global datasets ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Toolboxes (e.g. to empower civil society actors to hold state and private sector accountable) Engagement, Capacity building across and within countries (to strengthen impact pathways through knowledge uptake) Country case studies Cross-country comparative analysis Country profile Why: To reveal contextual conditions (drivers of deforestation, institutions, political economy, REDD architecture as discussed) How: literature review, expert interviews Discourse Analysis  Why: To determine what kinds of actors are shaping public debate and influencing the policy process. How: media-based analysis, stance analysis REDD+ Policy Content Analysis Why: To identify and analyse policies and measures and to monitor change over time How: Policy content analysis , regular updates of policy monitoring table Policy Network Analysis Why: To analyse actors, their relations and the structural conditions in the policy arena (Actors, Perception, Power, Position) How: surveys and in-depth interviews FlexibleElement:SpecificPolicyStudiestocaptureemerging orcountryspecificissuesandquestions,focusonpolitical economystudies National REDD+ Strategy Assessment (Full Country Case Analysis) Why: To assess proposed policies and measures, to identify obstacles and opportunities to realise REDD+ and secure 3E outcomes + co-benefits, to provide policy recommendations for improved domestic policy design and implementation How: Policy context and content analysis of existing REDD national strategies (Actors, Mechanisms, Structures)

  23. 23. Power of Agency (Brockhaus et al 2014 Governing the design of REDD+)  Who speaks business-as-usual, who speaks transformational change ? Frame analysis, Actor groups in the main BAU and TC discourse coalition (no. actor stances expressed in the coalition = frequency), No. of coalition actors  How powerful are these voices ?  Reputational power index 𝑅 𝑝 = 𝑖=1 𝑛 𝑝 𝑖𝑑 𝑖 𝑛 𝑝 𝑛−1  No. of coaltition group members * reputational power index, Reputational power index of discourse coalition 𝑅 𝑑 = sum of (No. of coalition group members x reputational power index)
  24. 24. Power of which agency?  State speaks BAU, often represents business interests, rights are framed around global equity issues  CSO often call for transformational change, with focus on rights issues  In most countries, BAU is much more powerful than TC  No actors speak “root causes of deforestation” …. highly problematic for REDD+ .. !!!
  25. 25. Exchange of information very limited, actors of same types mainly speak together, no ‘real’ exchange WHY? •Organizations are not aware of each other? •Some are not seen as important? •Respect??? 4 distinct clusters Homophily strong in national government cluster Only one bridge Indonesia Fragmentation in Information exchange network Moeliono, M., C.

  26. 26. THINKING beyond the canopy Measuring progress with REDD+ towards transformational change  Key findings: • Context matters: Already initiated institutional change allows for faster REDD+ design , but either forest pressure needs to be high or effective forest legislation, policy and governance in place • Actor-related factors of national ownership and transformational coalitions crucial: but could only be effective in an enabling institutional setting (Korhonen-Kurki et al. 2014. Enabling factors for establishing REDD+ in a context of weak governance. Climate Policy, 14(2), 167-186.) • BAU actor coalitions are powerful, main drivers of deforestation not yet tackled, but no REDD+ without  would need state with ‘societal welfare rationale’ to counterbalance deforestation-driving ‘profit rationale’… (Obidzinski et al. 2014. Oil palm plantation investments in Indonesia’s forest frontiers: limited economic multipliers and uncertain benefits for local communities.
