IUCN is developing Pro-Poor options for REDD+. IUCN’s Pro-Poor REDD+ approach is being shaped and developed in Guatemala, Cameroon, Ghana, Uganda and Indonesia. The proposed poster will inform visitors to the 2012 WCC and showcase successful experiences with the shaping of the Pro-Poor REDD+ Approach in these countries. The objective of the approach is for REDD+ not to create additional burdens for the rural poor, and to influence national REDD+ frameworks to take the interests of forest-reliant communities, Indigenous Peoples, women and other vulnerable groups into account.
Objective: To introduce visitors to the 2012 WCC to the development of Pro-Poor REDD+ approaches as nature-based climate mitigation solutions. Create understanding of the important link between healthy forests and livelihoods, and options of REDD+ to strengthening this role and address other key interests of Indigenous Peoples, forest-reliant communities, women and the rural poor in general.
