3.1.3 Process of accreditation and contractual framework

Proposal for agreement on the procedure and criteria for a transparent and participative accreditation process for REDD+ projects in consultation with stakeholders

3.1.4 Support and coordination of REDD+ projects and initiatives

Constitution of a first inventory of REDD+ projects and initiatives in DRC (12 projects - and several initiatives; including 6 under implementation). Joint work with the project leaders in the framework of the investment phase

3 2 studies under implementation

  • Feedback experience on alternatives to deforestation and forest degradation
3 3 development of anticipated action programs
3.3 Development of anticipated action programs

Preparation and launching of six anticipated REDD+ programs:

Framing and development of partnerships for operational projects:

5 challenges and lessons learned for the redd national process
5.Challenges and Lessons Learned for the REDD+ National Process
  • To simultaneously advance preparation and investment to maintain and accelerate national mobilization; coordinate financial and technical activities and to reinforce technical quality and participatory preparation
  • To manage REDD+ national process as a start-up: adaptation and flexibility, change management, innovation
  • To strengthen the national leadership and the engagement of international partners to encourage coordination between multilateral institutions and bilateral donors
  • To mobilize international financing to accelerate the readiness process; challenges are exacerbated by the delay of the disbursement of the FCPF grant, difficulties in coordinating programs under implementation and support of the national roadmap
moving forward
Moving Forward

• Continue the efforts of national coordination, to reaffirm the principle of “unique process”

  • Concretize the goodwill of partners into action
  • Agree on additional financing to directly support the readiness process
  • Move forward with a broader framework of the REDD+ process by reinforcing the relationship between environment and climate change
conclusion drc at a crossroads
Conclusion: DRC at a Crossroads?

REDD+ can constitute a lever for true sustainable development, in a socially and ecologically responsible manner.

  • The process of transformation is complex and naturally imperfect
  • National authorities ready to engage
  • International financings is a determining factor of credibility
  • The place of REDD+ in the national post-electoral development strategy will be largely determined by the credibility of the international financings. There is one year more to go.
