Presentation outline

Mou with the guiana shield facility gsf

  • MoU between ONF (as the project holder) and GSF

  • Comments have been made and discussed between ONF, ONFI and GSF

  • Documents under legal review

  • Purpose:

    • The purpose of this MOU is to provide a framework of cooperation and facilitate collaboration between the Parties, on a non-exclusive [and non-binding] basis, in areas of common interest.

    • In order to streamline future collaboration among the Guiana Shield countries that are participating in both the GSF and ONF initiatives, this MOU is to provide the framework for exchange of technical and other strategic information on REDD+, enhance capacity at national and community levels to sustainably manage forest ecosystems for achieving REDD+, and contribute to data sharing and regional technical cooperation and capacity building that the two projects will develop, in order to increase ownership and participation, and to sustain the gains made during implementation of the GSF and the REDD+ for the Guiana Shield Project held by ONF. 

    • This MOU, in no way, prejudices the obligation of either Party to their respective donors.

MoU with the Guiana Shield Facility (GSF)

Onf gsf mou

  • The Parties agree to cooperate in the following areas of activity:

    • The exchange and consolidation of technical and other strategic information in the area of REDD+ and Land-Use planning, in Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana and the Amapá state of Brazil, as well as in other bearing in mind the need to observe national sovereignty in pursuit of transboundary collaboration and to follow the respective project data sharing policies;

    • To enhance human and institutional capacities for effective monitoring and management of Guiana Shield forest ecosystems, including by enabling the different projects to have access to the other project data and information.

    • To initiate and conclude discussion on the alignment between the strategic priorities of the GSF and those of ONF with respect to sustaining the gains made during implementation of the GSF and ONF initiatives within the Guiana Shield eco-region, upon their respective donors acceptance.

  • Next steps :

    • Validation of the principle by SC members.

    • Legal review by Parties.

    • Draft sent to SC members end of December

      • With international mission(s) per country

      • Based on country ….?s

    • Next Steps:

      • Focal Points together with their hosting organizations identify the priorities within the Wish List – end of December

      • Compiling and Preparation of ToRs (budget, activities, expertise, calendar) by the Focal Points – end of January

      • Discussions with countries and contracting – until end of February

      • Starting implementation - March
