Ready for REDD+?
In recent years REDD+ has emerged as a potential solution to the challenge of reducing emissions from loss and degradation of forests. Live & Learn has produced a short animation which explains the basics of REDD+.
recent years REDD+ has emerged as a potential solution to the challenge of
reducing emissions from loss and degradation of forests, it provides an
alternative economic incentive for forest protection and sustainable forest
management. The community based approach being implemented by Live & Learn
aims to ensure that local indigenous people's rights are secured and that they
receive the maximum possible benefits from REDD+ as project owners. Live &
Learn has developed this film 'Ready for REDD?' as a resource that contributes
to the challenge of enabling indigenous and local communities to understand
REDD+ at a level where their participation is genuine and effective. This is a
key issue in respecting indigenous peoples rights to provide or withhold Free,
Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC).
The film is a useful tool for project developers, educators, planners, extension officers and community development practitioners. We recommend that it accompanies a comprehensive engagement program and caution against claiming that simply showing the film can achieve FPIC. Anyone wishing to obtain the rights to change the film into a local language is encouraged to contact Live & Learn.
The film is available in English, Fijian, Bislama and Solomon Islands Pidgin.
