    This technical document offers guidance and identifying options related to developing scaled-up crediting programs. It focuses on baseline development, in particular how to develop baselines consistent with rules that may arise for international crediting (or other forms of emissions trading or transfers) under the Paris Agreement. In principle, the baseline for a crediting program should represent the GHG emissions that would occur over a specified period of time in the program’s absence, taking into account a range of factors — including domestic policies — that might influence those emissions.

  • Forestry and Macroeconomic Accounts of Nigeria: The Importance of Linking Ecosystem Services to Macroeconomics

    This technical report summarises work conducted by UN-REDD+ during 2016 to guide the development of policy instruments for the Government of Nigeria in order to combat deforestation within the country. Since 2000 indeed, Nigeria faces a severe rate of deforestation, which results from a range of cumulative effects fundamentally driven by the immediate availability of woody biomass in the form of timber, fuelwood and construction timber; and the opportunity to acquire land for significantly higher agricultural returns.

    The purpose of this study is to analyze the economic value of Nigeria’s forest resources and demonstrate some policy instruments that would alleviate pressure on these natural forest systems.

  • Greening Technical and Vocational Education and Training – A practical guide for institutions

    Greening Technical and Vocational Education and Training: a practical guide for institutions is designed to help leaders and practitioners of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in improving their understanding of, and implementing, education for sustainable development (ESD).

    It is guided by a whole-institution approach, and uses a step-by-step process that can be applied in an institutional setting. The process consists of four steps: understanding, planning, implementing, and monitoring and assessment. The Guide identifies several key elements to assist TVET leaders and their institutional teams in understanding the steps in greening their institutions and programmes. It explains the need for, and the institutional benefits of, greening. It also addresses key elements for creating the rationale and strategy prior to launching the first step. The core elements of creating an institutional greening plan (IGP), addressing short, medium and long-term goals, are outlined in Step 2. Then Steps 3 and 4 address suggestions for implementing, developing and assessing the e greening process.

As the international community shifts its attention to the implementation of the Paris Agreement, all climate action will be guided by countries’ NDCs and relevant national policy frameworks. Countries will take the lead in taking transformative climate action in the agriculture sectors, but the international community must support developing countries in doing so.
