Welcome! The purpose of this discussion is to provide information and knowledge that will:
- Provide recommendations from countries to the Green Climate Fund to inform and strengthen the 2nd phase of the GCF RBP pilot programme, ensuring inclusivity and representation of global south experiences and knowledge.
- Share lessons learned and innovations developed by countries in the design and development of the proposals to access RBPs in a UN-REDD Programme information brief, in order to build capacities of countries advancing REDD+ readiness and implementation efforts.
Please share your thoughts on one or more of the following questions, indicating the theme and number of the question(s) you are addressing:
Theme 1 - Lessons Learned from engaging in first phase RBPs
- How can legal requirements on double counting, double claims and REDD + registries be met, within specific national context?
- What have been the key factors within successful strategies for the involvement of private sector actors, for example: certifications for deforestation-free value chains/commodities, increased productivity of small producers, enhancing domestic markets, participatory processes ?
- How have you ensured the involvement of indigenous peoples and local communities in REDD + projects, for example how to include relevant stakeholders who do not have a way to demonstrate carbon ownership; how to develop activities to allow the participation of more actors in the distribution of benefits?
How did your country determine the use of results-based payments (selection of beneficiaries, eligibility criteria, equity of allocating funding)? What are the lessons learned so far?
Theme 2 - Recommendations to the GCF for second phase RBPs
- Which aspects of the terms of reference for the pilot programme for REDD+ RBPs should be clarified and/or improved for the second phase?
- What aspects of the GCF scorecard should be improved or clarified? How? (ie. co-benefits, calculating buffer, etc)
- How can interaction with iTAP be better facilitated?
- How can a future GCF REDD+ results-based finance mechanism promote equity in access to such payments among countries globally?
