REDD-Net Asia-Pacific Bulletin #5: Drivers of Deforestation and REDD+

Institutional & promotional materials
Novembro, 2012
South-Eastern Asia

What do opportunity costs mean in the context of REDD+ and what are the implications for local communities? Farmers intuitively know the importance of opportunity costs. To tackle deforestation in a socially equitable way, we must consider what the drivers of deforestation are and what incentives and livelihood opportunities accompany them.

REDD-Net Asia-Pacific Bulletin #6: Adaptation, Forests and REDD+

Institutional & promotional materials
Novembro, 2012
South-Eastern Asia

Natural disaster management and agriculture tend to dominate discussions on climate change adaptation. But forests matter too. In fact, they matter a lot. Recent research is beginning to uncover just how much forest-based products and services contribute to the livelihoods of rural communities globally – now believed to be approximately one-fifth to one-quarter of household income. We need to begin paying more attention to how forests can increase the resilience of communities to impending climate change impacts.

REDD-Net Asia-Pacific Bulletin #4: Gender and REDD+

Institutional & promotional materials
Abril, 2011
South-Eastern Asia

International discussions on REDD+ and climate change have explicitly addressed the needs of indigenous peoples. However, to date, efforts to link REDD+ and climate change activities to the specific protection of rights of women have been very limited. This brief explores how REDD+ planning and implementation can and should enhance the conditions of rural women in Asia and the Pacific.

REDD-Net Asia-Pacific Bulletin #3: Carbon Rights and REDD+

Institutional & promotional materials
Dezembro, 2010
South-Eastern Asia

REDD+ is based on the right to benefit from (or to be compensated for) reducing forest-based emissionsn of greenhouse gases, either through fund-based payments, carbon market payments, or a combination of these. But who can claim this right? Should an entitlement to payment depend on who owns the so-called "carbon rights"? This raises a number of legal issues, including how to define and allocate carbon rights in national REDD+ frameworks.
