Tanzania Releases Report to Support Planning of Multiple Benefits and Safeguards for REDD+

In response to Tanzania's REDD+ Strategy, work has been carried out to support the development of maps in order to facilitate consideration of multiple benefits and safeguards in REDD+ planning and implementation.

This work built on Tanzania's National Forest Inventory (NAFORMA) and was undertaken in close collaboration among Tanzania's Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, the UN-REDD Programme (FAO and UNEP-WCMC) and the FAO-Finland Forestry Programme.

Tanzania's REDD+ Strategy states that "REDD+ is expected to bring much more than emissions reductions; a properly designed mechanism is expected to contribute to multiple benefits. Depending on the location and type of REDD+ activity, these benefits potentially include poverty alleviation, forest dependent communities' rights, improved community livelihoods, technology transfer, sustainable use of forest resources and biodiversity conservation."

Training in open-source GIS was delivered to eight Tanzanian collaborators from four institutions over 20 days of joint working sessions facilitated by UNEP-WCMC, and maps were developed to support Tanzania's implementation of the REDD+ safeguards and planning for multiple benefits from REDD+. These maps include natural forest, biodiversity, ecosystem services, drivers of deforestation and forest degradation, and potential zones for implementation of REDD+ activities. The results were presented to a larger stakeholder group for feedbacks. The final report can be accessed here.
