File Understanding Land Use in the UNFCCC by Peter Iversen; Donna Lee; Marcelo Rocha — last modified May 18, 2015 04:24 PM
While greenhouse gas emissions from land use have the same warming effect on the atmosphere as other emissions, land use is different from other sectors in a number of ways. As a consequence, reporting and accounting of emissions from land use has developed under the United National Framework Convention for Climate Change (UNFCCC) differently to other sectors. It has come to be seen as an arcane and complex subject, impenetrable to the average person and even to skilled negotiators. The objective of the Guide is to change this perception and increase the technical understanding of how human induced emissions and removals from the land sector—within climate change circles referred to as land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) or agriculture, forests and other land use (AFOLU)—are treated in terms of reporting and accounting under the UNFCCC.

In May 2012, FCMC supported a workshop for the Learning Initiative on Social Assessment of REDD+ (LISA-REDD) in Nairobi, Kenya to discuss Social Impact Assessment methodologies. This workshop report summarizes the presentations and discussions at the workshop, and elaborates upon the group’s central themes. The LISA-REDD initiative is an ongoing collaboration between USAID, FCMC, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), Conservation International, Care International, the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), Forest Trends, and the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA).

File Legal Frameworks for REDD - Design and Implementation at the National Level (IUCN Environmental Policy and Law Paper No. 77) by LiLing Choo — last modified Feb 20, 2013 01:35 AM
Supplementary material for Forest Trend's Payments for Ecosystem Services Training Modules and Resources. Paper written by John Costenbader (Ed.), International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). This paper provides a detailed overview of regulatory design and implementation options specifically for a non-lawyer audience. This paper is based on the findings from four case studies (Brazil, Cameroon, Guyana and Papua New Guinea), each representing varying geographies, forest cover and deforestation rates and stages of REDD preparation. The study questions whether legal clarity is an essential component for successful national REDD programs.

File Participatory Planning of Interventions to Mitigate Human-Wildlife Conflicts by LiLing Choo — last modified Mar 01, 2013 06:20 PM
ABSTRACT: Conservation of wildlife is especially challenging when the targeted species damage crops or livestock, attack humans, or take fish or game. Affected communities may retaliate and destroy wildlife or their habitats. We summarize recommendations from the literature for 13 distinct types of interventions to mitigate these human–wildlife conflicts. We classified eight types as direct (reducing the severity or frequency of encounters with wildlife) and five as indirect (raising human tolerance for encounters with wildlife) interventions. We analyzed general cause-and-effect relationships underlying human–wildlife conflicts to clarify the focal point of intervention for each type. To organize the recommendations on interventions we used three standard criteria for feasibility: cost-effective design, wildlife specificity and selectivity, and sociopolitical acceptability. The literature review and the feasibility criteria were integrated as decision support tools in three multi-stakeholder workshops. The workshops validated and refined our criteria and helped the participants select interventions. Our approach to planning interventions is systematic, uses standard criteria, and optimizes the participation of experts, policy makers, and affected communities. We argue that conservation action generally will be more effective if the relative merits of alternative interventions are evaluated in an explicit, systematic, and participatory manner.
File Report for the Conservation Finance Alliance: National REDD+ funding frameworks and achieving REDD+ readiness – findings from consultation by LiLing Choo — last modified Jan 10, 2013 12:52 PM
2010 report for the Conservation Finance Alliance (CFA) from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) on how REDD+ funding is currently, or could in the future, be managed and disbursed to developing countries. The report includes six case study country reports - Brazil, Cambodia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Madagascar and Peru- resulting from interviews conducted by RwC with stakeholder representatives from government, civil society, academia and the private sector in 2010; and an analysis report on the role of environmental funds and civil society in REDD+, based on interviews carried out in the six countries mentioned above and six additional countries (Costa Rica, Tanzania, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Uganda) in 2009. Report was made possible by USAID through the TransLinks cooperative agreement.

File Review of Community Forestry and Community Fisheries in Cambodia: Report prepared for the Natural Resource Management and Livelihoods Programme by Shreya Mehta — last modified Feb 20, 2013 02:08 AM
Background This study was commissioned by the Multi-Donor Livelihoods Facility (MDLF) of the Natural Resource Management and Livelihoods Programme (NRMLP) to review the progress achieved to date with regard to the implementation of community forestry and community fisheries and to assess the degree to which they are contributing to increased security of rights over natural resources, sustainable livelihoods (especially for the poor) and improved natural resources management. Essentially, the study has the following four key objectives: • to identify the degree to which community forestry (CF) and community fisheries (CFi) initiatives are delivering impacts at the community or group level (particularly with regard to economic, social and governance benefits) • to identify the degree to which these benefits are being equitably shared within participating communities and groups • to identify key obstacles and constraints to achieving greater impact within CF and CFi (in terms of poverty reduction, sustainable natural resource management and improved local governance) • to generate recommendations on how these constraints might practically be overcome – and based on this, how NRMLP might address them in its subsequent phase The team visited 7 CFi sites in 5 provinces and 6 CF sites in 3 provinces and had meetings with executive committee members, group members, women, commune councillors and poor members / non-members.
File Working Paper - Evaluating the Impact of the Wula Nafaa Natural Resources Management Program in Senegal on the Socio-Economic Status of the Population: A Quasi-Experimental Design Analysis by Portal Web Editor — last modified Nov 10, 2014 11:09 PM
The nature and power dimensions of Wula Nafaa will be analyzed in two separate investigations as part of the overall Wula Nafaa retrospective. The present study will focus on wealth. The analysis will attempt to answer the question of whether the program has resulted in increased household wealth -- or, equivalently, reduced poverty -- in the project area.
