In five countries with plans to value their standing forests, Conservation International is leading a partnership to ensure that all parties — from indigenous peoples to national leaders — participate in the process to access funding for REDD+ programs.

      Costa Rica, Kenya, Peru, Suriname and Vanuatu are participants in the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) — which means they are eligible to receive grants for approved REDD+ activities.

      One requirement to access this funding is enabling the participation of forest-dependent communities, NGOs and other individuals and organizations. Given the historical role of indigenous peoples and other forest dwellers as stewards of tropical forests, it is critical that they be meaningfully consulted during the formulation and implementation of their country’s REDD+ strategies and activities — so that they equally benefit from future financial incentives for continuing to protect their forests.

      Enter WISE REDD+ (Widening Informed Stakeholder Engagement for REDD+), a group of NGOs — Conservation International; IUCN’s Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office; and local partners — committed to supporting all-inclusive participation and addressing unfunded gaps in the national REDD+ programs of these five FCPF countries.


      Our role

      With project leads in five WISE REDD+ countries — each at a different stage of preparation and implementation — CI and partners serve as a trusted adviser to the national governments and fosters opportunities for the countries to exchange knowledge, resources and experiences via national and local workshops, webinars and teleconferences. CI also provides tools, trainings and information materials on a range of REDD+ topics, including a community manual about climate change and the role of forests.

      Edit Text:

      In “the greenest country on Earth” in terms of percentage of forest cover, CI is working with indigenous and tribal associations and the national government to open a dialogue and improve community engagement in the REDD+ process. To achieve this, a steering committee of indigenous and tribal leaders has been created to advise the government on culturally appropriate engagement of communities in REDD+ activities.
