International Workshop on Jurisdictional Integrated Landscape Management Programs
From July 20-22, 2015 representatives from REDD+ countries met for an African Regional Workshop on Jurisdictional Programs. The objective of the workshop was to build a common understanding on how to design and operationalize sustainable landscape management programs that aim to reduce GHG emissions. The workshop focused on high level strategic issues related to program design and implementation, including country political commitments, establishing a program (vision) that integrates with the national development agendas, aligning multiple partners and stakeholder for program delivery, and incentive structures for results-based payments. The primary participant base was comprised of African technical leaders on jurisdictional programs, who serve as counterparts to the World Bank's BioCarbon Fund (BioCF) and Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) and are involved with managing jurisdictional REDD+ programs through their respective line ministries.
