Protecting forests, stabilizing the climate and increasing food security through development and use of guidance to reduce agricultural drivers of deforestation.
Use of guidance to integrate efforts to reduce agricultural drivers of deforestation while reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions and boosting production by those directly adopting REDD+ plans, influencing those plans, or making investments in agricultural development.
The guidance will have differing levels of specificity and levels of aggregation to make it useful at multiple levels.
Target users include national governments to adjust agricultural development, NAMA REDD+ plans; civil society to influence those plans; international donors to assess plans, private food companies to plan strategies to reduce emissions from their supply chains, and agricultural extension agents and some farmers to work with the guidance to identify specific strategies for farmer improvements.
