South-South REDD Progress Report 1

Duncan Macqueen


Through a growing partnership, 'South-South REDD', a unique opportunity exists to create the conditions under which Mozambique can embark on a national REDD initiative. Almost 70% of Mozambique (54.8 million hectares) is forest and 80% of Mozambique's population (20 million people) live in forest-dependent areas where the incidence of poverty runs at 54%. Such populations are not only highly vulnerable to climate change, but also act as custodians of the forest - the sustainable management of which matters for global climate accounting. Payments for Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) could provide incentives for these populations to stem deforestation and help them develop at the same time. 

South-South REDD has already clarified institutional relationships and developed a roadmap towards a National REDD Strategy. This report outlines the origins of the project, the partners involved and details the agreed process and timetable for the future of South-South REDD.
