(Co-) Financing CC Measures in Forestry

Planning Workshop Istanbul Sept. 2010

(2) SilvaMedFinancing CC in Forestry

  • So far the conventional financing mechanisms (including ODA) for forestry have proven insufficient, particularly regarding additional costs for CC

  • In contrast, new sources and mechanisms specifically for financing CC-related activities in forestry have increased considerably

  • New opportunities for financing have been created in the frame of multilateral conventions and environmental agreements, but also by bilateral cooperation and NGOs

  • The access to these sources of financing is complicated (different regulations and access criteria have created confusion)

    EcoStrat


(3) SilvaMedFinancing CC in Forestry

  • Only a few of these new sources have a considerable potential:

    • the funds managed by GEF

    • the initiatives of the World Bank, UNEP and FAO

    • the awareness creating and training initiatives of NGOs,

    • the financial sources and capacity building opportunities offered by some bilateral donors (for ex. the new “REDD plus” Partnership)

The “REDD plus” Partnership (1)

Pledges (May 2010): 4.0.billion USD from: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Norway, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and USA:

An interim voluntary, non-legally binding platform in anticipation of UNFCCC process

  • To scale up REDD+ action & finance by immediate action

  • Enhance building of capacity for mitigation and adaptation and creation of an enabling environment

  • Facilitate knowledge transfer

    43 participating countries

The “REDD plus” Partnership (2)

Partnership principles:

  • Open for all countries willing to become part of partnership

  • Focused on performance-based REDD+ activities including capacity building and enabling environment

  • Enhancing exchange of lessons learnt and knowledge transfer

  • Seeking to ensure economic, social and environmental sustainability and enhance social benefits

General conclusions:

Most funds are performance-oriented. They expect from countries an enabling environment for successful investment in SFM and CC-related measures, including

  • Coherent financing strategies based on analysis of CC vulnerability

  • Inter-sectoral approaches

  • Enforcement of laws and regulations

  • Secure forest-land tenure

  • Coherent land-use planning

  • Participation of stakeholders

  • A system of payments for environmental services (PES)

  • A monitoring system

(7) SilvaMedFinancing CC in Forestry

Recommendations:

  • Countries wanting to get access to financing (part. REDD ”Plus” ) should give priority to broad policy reforms to reduce deforestation

    • “REDD Readiness”: financing strategies, law enforcement, secure forest-land tenure, land-use planning, inter-sectoral and multi-stakeholder approaches, analysis and responses to CC vulnerabilities

    • The big 5 “R”: “REDD Readiness Requires Radical Reforms”

  • External (CPMF) partners should give support to:

    • facilitate the access of member countries to the different instruments and mechanisms of financing

    • help create the necessary enabling conditions at country level
