CARBON PARTNERSHIP FACILITY CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAM ON REDD+ PROJECT CALL FOR PAPERS

INTRODUCTION

Deforestation and forest degradation account for about 17 per cent of the total global carbon emissions, significantly contributing to global warming[1]. Both are also a threat to loss of biological diversity and to the livelihood of forest-dependent communities. Scientists have estimated that global carbon stocks in forest biomass decreased by approximately 0.5 Gt per annually due to a reduction in forest coverage.

To tackle the problem of carbon emission and biodiversity loss from the forest, the UN Climate Change Convention conceived the framework, Reducing Emission from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) to, among other things, financially reward developing countries for any emission reduction achieved associated with a decrease in the conversion of forests to alternate land uses, and which incentivises a break from historic trends of increasing deforestation rates and greenhouse gases emissions. Markedly, REDD+ has gained profound acceptance in many developing countries and institutions.

And to advance and support the REDD+, the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), a global partnership of governments, businesses, civil society, and Indigenous Peoples, was established to, among other things, pilot a performance-based payment system for REDD+ activities, with a view to ensuring equitable benefit sharing and promoting future large-scale positive incentives for the Framework. FCPF is also meant to test ways to sustain or enhance the livelihoods of local communities and to conserve biodiversity, as well as to broadly disseminate the knowledge gained in the development of the Facility and the implementation of Readiness Preparation Proposals (RPPs) and Emission Reductions Programs (ERPs).
