Accelerating the Transition of REDD+ to Low Emission Rural Development in Five Pivotal Regions (Short Name: Accelerating LED-R Transitions)

The project will work towards the transition to sustainable, equitable, low-emission rural development (LED-R) accelerated in five target jurisdictions located in three pivotal tropical forest REDD+ nations with improved regional governance capacity to sustain and drive these transitions and with improved exchange of lessons and innovations with other REDD+ and LED-R processes.

The transition to sustainable, equitable, low-emission rural development (LED-R) accelerated in five target jurisdictions located in three pivotal tropical forest REDD+ nations with improved regional governance capacity to sustain and drive these transitions and with improved exchange of lessons and innovations with other REDD+ and LED-R processes.

Outcomes

(a) Smallholders, agricultural industries and businesses, finance institutions, government, and civil
society actors knowledgably engage in the design of and begin implementation of sector specific
programs for supporting/accelerating the transition to LED-R, and then merge these into jurisdiction wide plans.

(b) Project partners and other key actors have the capacity to effectively lead and/or
contribute to the transition to LED-R in their regions

(c) Project participants evaluate and share
their experiences with other regions as part of a process of scaling up LED-R to other jurisdictions.

Implementers

LED-R Consortium members: Earth Innovation Institute (lead), IPAM, Instituto del Bien Comun, Pronatura Sur, FIELD, and Advisory Board members.
