The<br /> combined emissions from deforestation and degradation account for an estimated 20% of<br /> global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest<br /> Degradation (REDD+) is a global agreement on climate change mitigation through reduction<br /> in GHG emissions and increases in GHG removals. REDD+ also seeks to provide socioecological<br /> co-benefits (e.g. biodiversity protection, pro-poor development, human rights and<br /> enhanced forest governance). African countries facing high levels of deforestation and forest<br /> degradation (e.g. DR Congo, Ghana, Mozambique and Tanzania) are engaged in REDD+ to<br /> address deforestation and pursue low carbon development paths. Therefore, these countries<br /> are engaged in a number of multilateral and bilateral agreements on forest governance and<br /> management. These engagements and development provide a foundation for the<br /> implementation of REDD+ in Africa as these countries have put in place fairly innovative<br /> institutional and policy frameworks for sustainable forest governance and management.</p> <p> On the other hand, conventional and emerging challenges such as weak forest governance,<br /> nebulous mechanisms for equitable benefit sharing, and ineffective enforcement of forest laws<br /> and regulations are likely to affect the effective implementation of REDD+ across Africa. This<br /> book thus seeks to document the practical experiences and lessons learnt in developing and<br /> implementing REDD+ programmes in Africa. These experiences and lessons are critical to<br /> guiding an effective development and implementation of REDD+ programmes in African<br /> countries desiring to implement REDD+ programmes while providing a rich pool of<br /> reference for countries in the preparation phase to draw on. The editors invite chapter<br /> proposals (abstracts) offering both theoretical and practical contributions, with the aim of<br /> advancing academic discourses and thinking, policymaking and implementation from<br /> REDD+ negotiators, carbon market actors and sustainable finance experts, project<br /> developers, scholars, researchers, and other leading experts.</p> <p>The contributions should be on<br /> but not limited to the following thematic areas with particular focus on Africa:<br /> <strong> REDD+ rationale and governance framework: theory and concept</strong><br /> - The nexus between deforestation, forest degradation, climate change and the<br /> rationale for REDD+<br /> - The Warsaw Framework and effective REDD+ governance<br /> o Stakeholder participation: consultation and engagement, and gender<br /> mainstreaming;<br /> o Institutional and legal frameworks for REDD+ implementation<br /> (institutional arrangements and coordination, tenure, carbon rights,<br /> emission reduction rights, benefit sharing);<br /> o Modalities for national forest monitoring systems; and measuring,<br /> reporting and verification (MRV);<br /> o Models and approaches for safeguards and information system; and<br /> feedback and redress mechanism;<br /> o REDD+ financing options (private sector, emission reduction and the role<br /> of carbon markets);</p> <p><strong> Experiences and lessons from selected REDD+ countries in Africa</strong><br /> - National case studies and localized experiences on:<br /> o Stakeholder participation (participation in REDD+ decision-making;<br /> practical approaches and tools to determining and effectively engaging<br /> relevant stakeholders; and overcoming pitfalls to stakeholder<br /> participation);<br /> o Approaches and design of institutional and legal/policy frameworks for<br /> REDD+ implementation;<br /> o Benefit sharing mechanisms for REDD+;<br /> o National forest emission monitoring system (challenges, practical<br /> approaches and tools to designing effective forest emission monitoring<br /> system);<br /> o Safeguards and information system/feedback and redress mechanism<br /> including human rights and gender mainstreaming in REDD+ design and<br /> implementation;<br /> o Transparency and accountability in REDD+ design and implementation;<br /> and<br /> o REDD+ finance beyond the pilot phases:<br />  Unlocking private sector finance for REDD+<br />  Emission reductions and the role of carbon markets<br />  Risk and risk management in private sector investment in REDD+</p> <p> Chapter proposals of 200 words covering specific issues and research themes outlined above<br /> including keywords (maximum 5 words), research methods/approach, and preliminary<br /> findings; short author(s) bio (including affiliation and contact details) should be submitted to<br /> Dr. Michael Addaney, <a href="mailto:michael.addaney@uenr.edu.gh">michael.addaney@uenr.edu.gh</a> and copy Mr. William Dumenu,<br /> <a href="mailto:wdumenu@csir-forig.org.gh">wdumenu@csir-forig.org.gh</a>. Deadline for abstract submission is Friday, 15th October 2021.<br /> Decisions on abstracts will be communicated by Friday, 29 October 2021. Full draft chapters<br /> (5000-6000 words including reference list) of accepted abstracts are expected by Sunday, 30<br /> January 2022.

It is <em><strong>free of charge for participants, but the total number of participants is limited to 40.</strong></em><br />  </p> <p><em><strong>Why develop research skills in systematic evidence evaluation?</strong></em></p> <p>The need for quantitative and qualitative scientific evidence for policy and management has significantly risen in recent years as the world is becoming increasingly interlinked with complex problems awaiting adequate policy and management decisions at all levels. This holds also true for the land use sector where forests and trees play key roles in the conservation, restoration and sustainable management of landscapes, particularly against the backdrop of the most pressing problems in the 21st century such as poverty, food security, transformation to a greener economy and sustainable development. In this context, it is important that sufficient evidence is generated from the body of globally available scientific research for the purpose of informing policy decisions and actions about forests and forest-related land-uses.<br />  </p> <p><em><strong>Who should participate?</strong></em></p> <p>Early and mid-career scientists from <strong>economically-disadvantaged countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America </strong>who are:</p> <ul type="disc"> <li>working on research issues related to forest landscape restoration,</li> <li>interested in learning how to apply elements used in a systematic review to make their own work more robust and reliable, and</li> <li>interested in meeting international peers in an open, collaborative environment with shared learning and peer-to-peer support.</li> </ul> <p> Please submit your interest by filling out the online form at: <a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.surveymonkey.com%2Fr%2FSystematicEvidenceEvaluationonFLR2021&amp;data=04%7C01%7C%7Cb1c215230e734ff49ddf08d8c8ebe2be%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637480262733182855%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=EGDEklHppJeHrS6uP88K902G6yeYrBKvjpNHMTym%2BBk%3D&amp;reserved=0">https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SystematicEvidenceEvaluationonFLR2021</a></p> <p>Deadline for submissions: <strong>28 February</strong>  <strong>2021</strong>, 23:59 GMT</p> <p> </p> <p>Links:</p> <ul type="disc"> <li>Detailed information on the online Training Workshop on Systematic Evidence Evaluation on Forest Landscape Restoration<strong>: </strong><a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.iufro.org%2Fscience%2Fspecial%2Fspdc%2Ftw%2Fonline-course-systematic-evidence-evaluation-2021%2F&amp;data=04%7C01%7C%7Cb1c215230e734ff49ddf08d8c8ebe2be%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637480262733192850%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=6tDHe%2F%2BR%2Bk%2FDvsZU6yzRaVf%2B559eklORMNbPTIlHzpk%3D&amp;reserved=0">https://www.iufro.org/science/special/spdc/tw/online-course-systematic-evidence-evaluation-2021/</a></li> <li>Expression of Interest form: <a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.surveymonkey.com%2Fr%2FSystematicEvidenceEvaluationonFLR2021&amp;data=04%7C01%7C%7Cb1c215230e734ff49ddf08d8c8ebe2be%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637480262733192850%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=K3qb2CL0cyz2%2FlcC13aZKEIyAR4TuqpK1DVLkgJPLYg%3D&amp;reserved=0">https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SystematicEvidenceEvaluationonFLR2021</a></li> </ul> <p> </p> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/294" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">abladesteven</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 02/04/2021 - 09:43</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-contactinfo field--type-text-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Contact info</div> <div class="field__item"><p>Contact us at <a href="mailto:office@iufro.org">office@iufro.org</a> or visit <a href="https://www.iufro.org/">https://www.iufro.org/</a></p> <p>IUFRO Headquarters, Marxergasse 2, 1030 Vienna, Austria.</p> <p>Imprint: <a href="https://www.iufro.org/legal/#c74">https://www.iufro.org/legal/#c74</a> * Privacy policy: <a href="https://www.iufro.org/legal/#c10397">https://www.iufro.org/legal/#c10397</a></p> </div> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/6" hreflang="en">Forest Policy and Governance</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/8" hreflang="en">Forest Products Utilisation and Trade</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/5" hreflang="en">Forests and Climate Change</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/7" hreflang="en">Forests and Poverty Alleviation</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/9" hreflang="en">Other Information</a> <a href="/taxonomy/term/820" hreflang="en">IUFRO-SPDC</a> Thu, 04 Feb 2021 09:43:07 +0000 abladesteven 786 at https://www.fornis.net Call for Project Outlines on Sustainable Recovery https://www.fornis.net/content/call-project-outlines-sustainable-recovery <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Call for Project Outlines on Sustainable Recovery </span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The German Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMU) has launched a new funding round of the thematic selection procedure under International Climate Initiative (IKI).
