REDD workshop, Bangui

The CAR Government launched the national Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) process in September 2010, and the CAR REDD Readiness Preparation Proposal (RPP) was approved for $3.6m of funding in October 2011, dependent on the inclusion of key donor and civil society concerns into the RPP.

RFUK has provided in-depth capacity building support to NGOs on REDD issues in CAR since July 2010, co-ordinating workshops like the one pictured, training and information sharing with civil society REDD ‘Focal Points'.

Potentially, the participatory mapping project could play a critical role in the longer term in ensuring equitable distribution of benefits from REDD because it provides a basis for showing on an accurately quantifiable basis the ‘tenure' of forest dependent communities, and thus the area of forest for which they are ‘responsible'.
