Tue, 02 Jul, 2024

This guidance document has been prepared to help planners and practitioners at the sub-national level in Myanmar to follow best practices for safeguards when planning, carrying out, monitoring and reporting on REDD+ actions. Although design for REDD+ action, the guidance may also be relevant for applying safeguards to other projects and initiatives in the forest sector, such as community forestry and restoration.

This guidance document focuses on requirements and best practice most relevant to Myanmar’s national safeguards approach, which was developed through a national participatory process during 2016-2020. It covers concepts and approaches that are useful for integrating safeguards into various aspects of REDD+ planning and implementation, and it has a special focus on REDD+ actions involving community forestry and mangrove conservation, restoration, and sustainable management. It provides step-by-step guidance on each stage of applying the safeguards to REDD+ actions and similar projects, setting out a safeguards approach to inform socially and environmentally sustainable planning, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation.
