Jamaica is currently engaging the first of three phases of Reducing Emissions for Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+), namely ‘readiness’ which will then be followed by ‘implementation’ and ‘payments for results. Those envisaged results-based payments are expected to be part of broader policy alignment behind the objective of REDD+ within Jamaica.

The IIED team has been contracted by the Climate Change Division of the government of Jamaica to provide support for REDD+ readiness in Jamaica. This inception report provides details of the project initiation and plans for the anticipated deliverables. It covers:

  • The background to the project with relevant information on REDD+
  • A summary of initial activities to operationalise the project
  • Highlights of initial meetings around the proposed workplan and alterations that have to be made in light of the limitation imposed by the current pandemic, and
  • Next steps. 

This inception report was prepared after several engagements with stakeholders in Jamaica – each of which is summarised in the annexes to this report.
