Module 2:PowerPoint Presentation: R educed E missions from D eforestation and forest D egradationPowerPoint Presentation: Protect the livelihoods of communities dependant on forests Stabilise the climate Protect biodiversityPowerPoint Presentation: Poor forest governance Poor recognition of forest people's rights Insufficient recognition of communities’ rights to land and resources. Factors making the problem worse: See Module 5: Communities and REDDPowerPoint Presentation: Pay developing countries to keep their forests standing of REDD Concept in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissionsPowerPoint Presentation: Deforestation, decay of biomass etc. (17.4%) Fossil fuels (71%) Human-induced Greenhouse Gas Emissions REMEMBERPowerPoint Presentation: The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change ( UNFCCC ): 'the largest share of historical and current global emissions of greenhouse gases has originated in developed countries ... … the developed country Parties should take the lead in combating climate change and the adverse effects thereof' REMEMBERPowerPoint Presentation: UNFCCC negotiations at Kyoto: Rejected the idea of making payments to discourage deforestation and degradation, because of ‘fundamental’ problems with the concept.PowerPoint Presentation: REDD schemes are being championed internationally. But these 'fundamental’ problems have not been resolved.PowerPoint Presentation: Avoiding deforestation in one place may make it more likely that another, unprotected, forest will be destroyed instead – in another area or another country. Leakage Fundamental Problems with REDDPowerPoint Presentation: Emissions savings must be measured against a guess about what might have happened otherwise, and are impossible to prove. Additionality Fundamental Problems with REDDPowerPoint Presentation: Forest carbon is not permanently locked away – it will always return to the atmosphere when the trees die. This makes it fundamentally different to fossil carbon. Permanence Fundamental Problems with REDDPowerPoint Presentation: It is very difficult to measure with certainty how much carbon is stored in forests, making it impossible to compare against countries’ reductions in fossil fuel emissions. Measurement UNFCCC's 'fundamental problems 'PowerPoint Presentation: None of these problems have been solved. Instead, REDD has becomePowerPoint Presentation: REDD plus emphasises potential positive effects beyond reduced deforestation: PLUS CONSERVATION (excluding communities?) PLUS SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF FORESTS (industrial logging?) PLUS ENHANCEMENT OF FOREST CARBON STOCKS (monoculture plantations?)PowerPoint Presentation: Everybody agrees on the need for strong safeguards to protect against possible negative impacts of REDD+ on communities and othersPowerPoint Presentation: Indigenous peoples have struggled to have their rights recognised in UNFCCC REDD+ negotiations. They have had some success, such as reference to Free Prior and Informed Consent , although this is now under threat. Safeguards are meaningless if they’re not implemented. Without genuine respect for forest peoples’ rights, including land tenure reform where needed, REDD+ could cause real damage See Module 5: Communities and REDDPowerPoint Presentation: This is the major outstanding issue in REDD+ See Module 3: What is Carbon Trading?PowerPoint Presentation: Module 3: What is carbon trading? Module 4: Forests and carbon trading Module 2: What is REDD? Module 1: What is Climate Change? Module 5: REDD and communities Module 6: Lessons from FLEGT for REDDPowerPoint Presentation: RECAP: REDD has been proposed to tackle deforestation Poor forest governance Poor recognition of forest people's rights No recognition of land tenure for local communities Factors making deforestation worse: You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
