Special Edition: REDD+ SAFEGUARDS UPDATE
The UN-REDD Programme has supported developing countries for more than ten years in the development of approaches to address and respect the safeguards. As a result of this support, in 2019 ten countries made progress in the report of safeguards: Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cote d’Ivoire, Honduras, Myanmar, Paraguay, Peru, Viet Nam, and Zambia. Also, seven countries advanced in the design and operation of their Safeguards Information Systems (SIS) at a national level: Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Cote d’Ivoire, Myanmar, Paraguay, and Zambia. More information about the global progress in the safeguards elements of the Warsaw Framework for REDD+ can be found in the first blog.
The Programme is pleased to share information on the progress of the safeguards processes. Technical documents were developed to support activities in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean. The last three years, the focus has been placed in assisting countries to develop their Safeguards Information Systems (SIS) and making them operational, as well as on helping them in the elaboration of summaries of information.
