"REDD+ projects and national-level Readiness processes: a case study from Kenya"

 

1. Policy.The „REDD+ projects and national-level Readiness processes: a case study from Kenya“  paper discusses the relationship between pilot early action projects -- as are getting underway within many of the CBFP landscapes - and development of operational National REDD+ Strategies & Action Plans and building national capacity to implement them - as was intended in the UNFCCC adoption of the 2007 Bali Action Plan .

 

Abstract

The Bali Action Plan and Cancun agreements on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, plus forest conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks (REDD+) have encouraged demonstration activities as part of Readiness and a step towards national approaches. This has enabled important growth in pilot and demonstration projects. Yet an understanding about how these projects are connected and contribute to national-level technical, policy, and institutional preparedness (Readiness) for REDD+ is lacking. This article examines the linkages between national processes and the private-sector-driven Kasigau Corridor REDD+ project in Kenya. The study reveals interesting cross-scale interactions that have increased over time and have high potential for harnessing national-level processes through lessons from the project level. Key innovations from the Kasigau Corridor Project include the implementation of REDD+ in dry forests, operationalization of conservation easements in the context of REDD+, and demonstration of potential ways of obtaining upfront finance for REDD+. The study also provides a number of key recommendations for Kenya and REDD+ in general, including official endorsement of stand-alone REDD+ projects under national Readiness schemes and exploring jurisdictional and nested REDD+ approaches. Additionally, more accommodating national-level frameworks for attracting private-sector engagement and investments, and for integrating, scaling-out, or scaling-up lessons from such projects, would be needed to enhance national REDD+ Readiness.

2. Practice. The newsletter that Wildlife Works Carbon (WWC) puts out to its local constituency for the Kasigau Corridor (Kenya) REDD+ project, the most longstanding and successful REDD+ project to date in Africa.  As REDD+ activities gain momentum within the landscapes and jurisdictions where they occur,  this type of outreach approach may be worth thinking about for communicating information about REDD+ actions - and other landscape-focused activities -- to at least the literate fraction -- of the local constituencies.
