|Preparation of a National REDD-plus Mechanism for Greenhouse Gas Reduction and Conservation of Biodiversity in the Philippines (National REDD-plus System Philippines)|
The Preparation of a National REDD-plus Mechanism for Greenhouse Gas Reduction and Conservation of Biodiversity in the Philippines (National REDD-plus System Philippines) Project. builds on the experiences of the BMU funded project ‘Climate-relevant Modernization of the Forest Policy and Piloting of REDD Measures in the Philippines’ (2009-2013), the UN-REDD Program and other relevant projects.
The Project aims to contribute to emissions reductions in the Philippines through strengthened REDD-plus actions by: (1) supporting the Philippine National REDD-plus Strategy in creating important frame conditions to implement REDD-plus at national and local levels; and (2) implementing REDD-plus measures in selected areas to prevent deforestation and forest degradation, while providing co-benefits of livelihood improvements and biodiversity conservation.
The project duration is from November 2012 – April 2017. Implementation is country-wide in support of the Philippine National REDD-plus Strategy and building of related capacities. Experiences will be fed back to the international climate policy discussions through the Philippine Delegation to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
