A Report titled " Towards a ;landscape approach for reducing emissions: a substantive report of the Reducing Emissions from All Land Use – REALU project"
This report documents lessons and experiences from the Reduced Emission from All Land Use (REALU) project, implemented by the ASB Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins (ASB) hosted by the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) from 2009 – 2013 with financial support from Norway’s Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI)/the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD). The report synthesizes findings and learning from exploratory work on landscape approaches towards emission reductions, the results of which aim to support actors in Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+), agriculture and climate smart landscapes. Given that this is an action research project, this report represents work in progress as the results and outcomes of the project are still being digested and further developed in the current phase of the project titled SECURED LANDSCAPES – Securing Ecosystems and Carbon benefits by Unlocking Reversal of Emissions Drivers in Landscapes...
A policy brief titled "Linking development pathways and emission reduction at local levels: An analysis of feasibility in Efoulan municipality, Cameroon"
Summary: Exploring subnational or landscape level development planning and emission reduction linkages is an important part of ensuring sustainable development and climate smart development in particular. Such a process can enable a realistic bottom-up reference emission level and eventual REDD+ or NAMA planning and implementation. This policy brief presents feasibility of the development pathways being pursued within the land use sector to reduce emission in the Efoulan municipality located in the South Region of Cameroon and covers 83000 hectares of tropical humid forest zone. Our focus on this municipality was borne out of consideration that with effective completion of the decentralization process in Cameroon, the council administrative system would play a key role in the natural resource management framework as embedded in the municipality development plans.
