REDD-PAC series of regional, national and sub-national spatial analyses for REDD+ strategies and land use policies
12.05.2015

UNEP-WCMC announces the completion of a series of regional, national and sub-national scale spatial analyses to support the design of efficient, effective and environmentally relevant REDD+ strategies and land use policies. In collaboration with global and regional partners, UNEP-WCMC has worked with decision-makers and technical specialists in Africa (the Congo Basin and Uganda), Latin America (Peru) and Asia (China, the Philippines, and Vietnam) to develop mapping tailored to the specific needs of each context. The mapping can be used to assist decision makers in planning for REDD+ and other land use in ways that generate multiple benefits, such as biodiversity and social benefits and climate change adaptation. It can also help to explore potential contributions of REDD+ actions to meeting other international policy commitments, such as the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. A full set of reports on this work, one for each country (or region), is now published and available to download.

The work for the reports forms part of the REDD-PAC project (www.redd-pac.org), which aims to develop technical solutions and capacity for designing efficient, effective and environmentally relevant REDD+ strategies and land use policies. It is a collaborative project with the International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE) and the Central African Forestry Commission (COMIFAC). The overall project is modelling land use change in Brazil and the Congo Basin to support national and regional REDD+ policy development. The final report in the series highlights the methodological considerations and links between mapping and land use modelling; illustrated with examples from the work in Brazil.
