A Training Manual - Putting Free Prior and Informed Consent into Practice in REDD+ Initiatives (2012)
15 March 2012
size : 2981.49 KB


This manual is about building knowledge and capacity for respecting people’s right to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC). It can be described as the establishment of conditions under which people exercise their fundamental right to negotiate the terms of externally imposed policies and programs that directly affect their livelihoods or wellbeing, to which they may give or withhold their consent. It is a social safeguard empowering local people to say “yes” or “no” to development initiatives. This manual is developed for trainers. It provides ideas, experiential learning exercises and training materials that can help trainers systematically unpack the concept of FPIC and related implementation processes for different groups of people in a range of contexts and countries. Rights, Forest & Climate Briefing Series - Central Sulawesi: UN-REDD Indonesia's Pilot Province (2011)
15 October 2011
size : 1416.47 KB


In October 2010, the UN-REDD programme selected Central Sulawesi province as the focus of its Demonstration Activities to prepare for the implementation of REDD+. The programme is required to pay attention to impacts on rights to land and the rights of indigenous peoples. This implies that the UN-REDD programme in Indonesia should seek to assist resolution of ongoing and potential disputes with indigenous peoples, for example by supporting a policy for conflict resolution and restoration of the rights of indigenous and local communities, by supporting the revision and revoking of problematic policies or by supporting policies that can recognise, respect and protect the rights of indigenous and local communities to land and forest.

In the light of government shifts towards rights recognition, Indonesian indigenous peoples are calling on the government to revise its REDD+ plan and the moratorium on new permits for forest development. Rights, Forest & Climate Briefing Series - Papua and West Papua: REDD+ and The Threat to Indigenous People (2011)
15 October 2011
size : 2000.29 KB


Climate change mitigation efforts in Papua need to pay special attention to the rights and needs of indigenous peoples that will be affected by these efforts. Measures to inform and cooperate with indigenous communities must respect the right of communities to FPIC and be undertaken with participatory planning that effectively involves all the indigenous communities that will be affected.

Social and Biodiveristy Impact Assestment (SBIA) Manual For REDD+ Projects - Part 1 - Core Guidance for Project Proponents (2011)
15 September 2011
size : 2394.66 KB


The Social and Biodiversity Impact Assessment Manual for REDD+ Projects (“SBIA Manual” for short) was written to help those who are responsible for the design and implementation of land-based carbon projects to monitor the ways in which their projects affect the local biodiversity and the livelihoods of the people living in and around a project site. There are various reasons why this is necessary, including the moral imperative to at least avoid negative social and biodiversity impacts, as recognized in the Safeguards agreed at the 2010 UNFCCC meeting in Cancun. Other reasons include upwards and downwards accountability, ensuring local and wider political acceptability, and a commercial rationale – many carbon offset buyers are specifically attracted to forest carbon projects because of their potential to generate social and environmental co-benefits (EcoSecurities 2010). Just as these buyers seek assurance that the offsets they buy represent real emissions reductions, they also want to know the real effect of a project on the local people and environment. Therefore, many land-based emissions reductions projects are being designed to meet multiple-benefit standards such as the Climate, Community & Biodiversity (CCB) Standards.

New Studies Suggest Lack of Meaningful Land Rights Play Key Role in Conflict, Increase in Carbon Emission from Indonesia's Forests (2011)

  LOMBOK, INDONESIA (12 July 2011)— New research released that day at a high-level forestry conference in Indonesia—opened by Vice President Boediono—suggests that Asia’s largest forest nation is paying a high price for failing to give local communities enforceable rights to contested forests, causing significant economic losses owing to its highly undervalued forestland, and leading it to lose out to regional competitors.

Local Perspectives on REDD In Comparison with Those at The International Negotiation Tables and Their Representation in Quantitative Scenario Model (2011)
16 June 2011
size : 3428.12 KB


The report uses case studies in Indonesia to answer pertinent questions on whether local stakeholders can make use of the REDD+ interest of their national government to further their livelihoods strategies and development aspirations or will the REDD+ implementation measures set them back in their conflicts over resource access. The report further proposes a nesting of models that will describe interactions between natural, social, human, financial and physical capital at multiple scales, with the primary cross-scale interactions restricted to the various capital types, and the cross-capital interactions restricted to an identical scale. A stakeholder analysis of REDD+ perspectives at provincial scale will be used in such models. No Rights No REDD (2011)

size : 116.41 KB


  This paper is intended to outline some of the major concerns associated with the implementation of REDD. At a base ideological level the concept of REDD is flawed, as there is a distinct possibility it will be exploited by industrialised countries to eschew responsibility for reducing emissions in their own countries. Numerous technical issues must be also resolved. In its current guise, REDD risks marginalizing Indonesia’s forest dependent people and even being responsible for increased deforestation. There remain serious concerns that "global warming which is a social and environmental problem has become a business endeavour which offers opportunities to gain new property rights, assets and openings for capital accumulation" ASEAN, Climate Change, REDD+ and Indigenous Peoples (2011)

With respect to the ASEAN’s engagement in climate change, Indigenous Peoples of the region made the following recommendation to the ASEAN: • To establish a mechanism for sustained consultation and engagement of Indigenous Peoples and civil society organizations in processes relating to climate change that is transparent and inclusive • To abide by its international obligations and commitments with regard to the respect for the rights on Indigenous Peoples • To ensure the full and effective participation of Indigenous Peoples in development of measures and programmes relating to climate change mitigation and adaptation • To facilitate and provide funds and appropriate resources to support the initiatives of Indigenous Peoples on climate change adaptation and mitigation Understanding Community-Based REDD+ - A Manual for Indigenous Communities (2011)

The manual will be useful for indigenous communities who: • Are going to be affected by REDD+ projects initiated by outsiders and who, therefore, need to know what it is all about to be able to decide whether to go along with it or not • Are considering to be a part of a larger REDD+ scheme initiated by others and want to know how to ensure their full and effective participation • Are considering of having their own REDD+ project with an outside partner and want to know how this can be done so that they remain in control Understanding Community-Based REDD+ - A Manual for Indigenous Community Trainers (2011)

size : 4892.12 KB


While the first community guide in the manual series, “What is REDD?”, aims to help indigenous communities to understand what REDD+ is and what its implications may be for them more generally, this manual looks at REDD+ at the project level. The purpose of this manual is to provide guidance to indigenous trainers to prepare and conduct trainings on Community-based REDD+. These trainings should help communities acquire the knowledge and skills needed to take a decision on whether to join a REDD+ project, and if they do, to be able to fully and effectively participate in it. This trainers’ manual is accompanied by a separate manual prepared for participants attending a training on Community-based REDD+, and for indigenous communities who want to learn about CB REDD+ on their own.
