The project aims at creating a national framework for reducing greenhouse gases from deforestation and forest degradation. The target groups are those responsible for REDD+ in the environment ministry, national and local government authorities as well as the populations who are dependent on forests, primarily indigenous groups. Measures include the establishment of a national implementation and coordination system (REDD+ register, governance structures); the development of REDD+ financial and participation mechanisms; extensive forest-related land-use planning in selected regions as a prerequisite for zoning and establishing land-use rights; the integration of ecological and social standards in implementing REDD+ measures; and awareness-raising and information/knowledge management.
