Reducing Emission on Deforestation and Land Degradation

Project Summary

The objective of this initial United Nations (UN) Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) programme in Solomon Islands is to establish the necessary institutional and individual capacities required to develop full REDD+ readiness in the Solomon Islands through three outcomes: 1) REDD+ readiness supported by effective, inclusive and participatory management processes, 2) REDD+ stakeholders have a comprehensive understanding of the potential benefits and risks associated with REDD+, and 3) Preliminary capacity developed for REL formulation and MRV. The programme focuses on six (6) main components: Management of Readiness, Stakeholder Participation, REDD Implementation Framework, REDD Strategy Setting, Reference Scenario and National Monitoring System.

What are the project’s goals?

The Objective of this initial UN-REDD programme is “to establish the necessary institutional and individual capacities required to develop full REDD+ readiness in the Solomon Islands”.  This Objective will be secured through three Outcomes and associated Outputs.  These are:

Outcome 1: REDD+ readiness supported by effective, inclusive and participatory management processes. The initial programme will deliver this Outcome through the following three Outputs:

Output 1.1: A broad-based, multi-stakeholder national REDD+ working group;
Output 1.2: Collated and analyzed forest resource data;
Output 1.3: A REDD+ readiness roadmap.

Outcome 2: REDD+ stakeholders have a comprehensive understanding of the potential benefits and risks associated with REDD+.  The initial programme will deliver this Outcome through the following three Outputs:

Output 2.1: A constituency-based education and awareness raising programme;
Output 2.2: A process to ensure the right of free, prior and informed consent for actions to be undertaken on REDD+;
Output 2.3: A rapid/initial cost-abatement assessment.

Outcome 3:
Preliminary capacity developed for REL formulation and MRV.  This will be achieved through two Outputs:

Output 3.1: Reference Emission Level (REL) and Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) capacity assessments;
Output 3.2: Assessment of potential for regional cooperation on MRV.
