  • REDD+ and FLEGT: Working Together to Strengthen Forest Governance and Mitigate Climate Change

    This report focuses on the loss that forests contribute to annual greenhouse gas emissions, making it a major contributor to climate change. It compiles cases demonstrating that aligning the actions of stakeholders involved in Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) and Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) can make a greater and more sustained contribution to the forest sector’s ‘mitigation potential’ and to addressing the core drivers of weak forest governance.

  • Tenure and REDD+ in Malawi

    This assessment report provides a comprehensive review of Malawi's tenure regime in the context of developing the country's national REDD+ program. The document includes information on the historical context, legal and policy framework, sources of land tenure insecurity, gender issues, and other cross-cutting governance challenges. While the existing legal and policy frameworks support strong tenure rights as a facet of community-based management, their implementation has been hindered by a number of factors, including the lack of a clear legal basis for defining forest tenure rights under various forms of management. In order to support effective and sustainable planning, the analysis intends to clarify the role of various institutional players (including traditional leaders) in the Forestry and/or the Land Acts. A set of recommendations for next steps is included in the conclusion.

  • The Adaptation Gap Finance Report 2016

    This guidance document explores the costs of meeting adaptation needs and assesses the funding that is available for meeting those needs. The report suggests that although international public funding for adaptation has increased in recent years, the previous assessments of the costs of adaptation have involved significant underestimates. This leaves a gap – the adaptation finance gap – which is needed to be filled in order to achieve the ambitions of the Paris Agreement.

  • The Agriculture Sectors in the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions: Analysis

    This analytical document provides an overview on how the agriculture sectors have been included in the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) and/or their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the UNFCCC. It outlines mitigation contributions with a particular focus on agriculture and land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF), vulnerabilities under climate change and priority areas and/or activities for adaptation in the agriculture sectors.

    Furthermore, this report summarizes information provided in the INDCs/ NDCs on Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA), mitigation-adaptation co-benefits and how countries have developed their INDCs and are planning to implement their NDCs. The aim of this analysis is to provide a basis for identifying priorities for international support for climate action in the agriculture sectors.
