"REDD+ projects and national-level Readiness processes: a case study from Kenya"

 

1. Policy.The „REDD+ projects and national-level Readiness processes: a case study from Kenya“  paper discusses the relationship between pilot early action projects -- as are getting underway within many of the CBFP landscapes - and development of operational National REDD+ Strategies & Action Plans and building national capacity to implement them - as was intended in the UNFCCC adoption of the 2007 Bali Action Plan .

 

Abstract

The Bali Action Plan and Cancun agreements on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, plus forest conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+) have encouraged demonstration activities as part of Readiness and a step towards national approaches. This has enabled important growth in pilot and demonstration projects. Yet an understanding about how these projects are connected and contribute to national-level technical, policy, and institutional preparedness (Readiness) for REDD+ is lacking. This article examines the linkages between national processes and the private-sector-driven Kasigau Corridor REDD+ project in Kenya. The study reveals interesting cross-scale interactions that have increased over time and have high potential for harnessing national-level processes through lessons from the project level. Key innovations from the Kasigau Corridor Project include the implementation of REDD+ in dry forests, operationalization of conservation easements in the context of REDD+, and demonstration of potential ways of obtaining upfront finance for REDD+. The study also provides a number of key recommendations for Kenya and REDD+ in general, including official endorsement of stand-alone REDD+ projects under national Readiness schemes and exploring jurisdictional and nested REDD+ approaches. Additionally, more accommodating national-level frameworks for attracting private-sector engagement and investments, and for integrating, scaling-out, or scaling-up lessons from such projects, would be needed to enhance national REDD+ Readiness.

2. Practice. The newsletter that Wildlife Works Carbon (WWC) puts out to its local constituency for the Kasigau Corridor (Kenya) REDD+ project, the most longstanding and successful REDD+ project to date in Africa.  As REDD+ activities gain momentum within the landscapes and jurisdictions where they occur,  this type of outreach approach may be worth thinking about for communicating information about REDD+ actions - and other landscape-focused activities -- to at least the literate fraction -- of the local constituencies.

UN-International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, 16 September

"For over three decades, the Montreal Protocol has done much more than shrink the ozone hole; it has shown us how environmental governance can respond to science, and how countries can come together to address a shared vulnerability. I call for that same spirit of common cause and, especially, greater leadership as we strive to implement the Paris Agreement on climate change and mobilize the ambitious climate action we so urgently need at this time." UN Secretary-General António Guterres
