  2. 2. FAO Forestry To Reduce Deforestation and forest Degradation work is needed outside forests Drivers of deforestation; Agriculture a main driver how it is addressed? Paris Agreement, NDCs, SDGs Agriculture and forestry nexus, landscape approach Agroforestry, an opportunity for REDD+?
  3. 3. FAO Forestry What is REDD+? REDD+= Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, plus the sustainable management of forests, and the conservation and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+),
  4. 4. FAO Forestry Crosscuttingandenablingactions FAO suppor t 2008 - 2016 FAO support from 2016 PHASE 1 Readiness Development of technical capacities and of the pillars PHASE 2 Implementation Implementation of actions, continued capacity development PHASE 3 Results Results-based actions are fully implemented, measured and reported IMPLEMENTATION OF MITIGATION ACTIONS, MONITORING & REPORTING OF RELATED RESULTS REDD+: From Readiness, to Implementation, to Results-based actions
  5. 5. FAO Forestry • Around 70 countries (of which 64 UN-REDD member countries) • Global, regional & national level • South-south Cooperation With wide range of partners and donors : Where does FAO work?

  7. 7. FAO Forestry FAO’s support on REDD+ actions: examples Examples of joint actions with governments and stakeholders providing support for: • Preparation and implementation of drivers studies REDD+ strategies, investment plans (e.g. Argentina, Equatorial Guinea, Ivory Coast, Vietnam) • Mobilization of funding for REDD+ implementation (e.g. GCF Eq. Guinea; CAFI; Canada-Honduras) • Private sector engagement & facilities (development of new project ideas) • Capacity strengthening of local communities, women, IPs (e.g. Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Zambia) • Alternative livelihoods to reduce pressure on forests (e.g. agroforestry & climate-smart agric. Congo) • Fire management and control (e.g. Chile) Increasingly…  Including REDD+ actions into NDCs  Recognising mutual benefits with SDGs, land-use planning and restoration goals  Synergies with other processes that support governance (e.g. FLEGT)
  8. 8. FAO Forestry Increasing support on formulation and implementation of REDD+ actions • Ensure enabling environment (e.g. governance, tenure, gender and full participation) • Enhance cross-sectorial collaboration and land-use planning to boost mitigation and adaptation while ensuring food security • Promoting public-private partnerships and private- sector engagement in REDD+ • Boosting contributions of local actors to national processes Support linking of REDD+ to NDCs and SDGs to foster coordinated approach and sustainability Generating knowledge and supporting countries in achieving a transformational change in agriculture, forestry and other land use sector. Continuing support to countries on MRV • Technical assistance on FREL, NFMS (NFI, SLMS), GHGi, data for NDCs & reporting REDD+ future at FAO
