A National Workshop for Sharing Lessons Learnt from REDD+ Piloting

Time: 8:00am – 5:00pm 
Date: Thursday 5th March, 2015
Venue: Army Hotel, 33C Pham Ngu Lao Street, Hoan Kiem, Ha Noi

The Vietnam REDD+ Office (VRO) and Fauna & Flora International (FFI) will hold a national, multi-stakeholder workshop on lessons learned from REDD+ piloting, in support of national REDD+ policy development. The event will draw heavily on FFI’s experience of developing a sub-national REDD+ pilot (in Kon Tum Province), with funding from the European Union, and other such pilots in Vietnam. This workshop, and a set of accompanying policy briefs, have been made possible with support from the EU REDD Facility of the European Forest Institute, and produced with funding from the European Union and member states.

The goal of this assignment is to harness experience from sub-national REDD+ piloting to inform national REDD+ policy development through access to and discussion with key REDD+ and FLEGT stakeholders in Vietnam.

Objectives:

- Share experience, tools and lessons learnt to date on all aspects of REDD+ piloting where they are relevant to national implementation, including:

Benefit sharing; monitoring, reporting and verification; sub-national (jurisdictional) approaches to REDD+, as part of a phased and nested approach to national level implementation; safeguards and safeguard information systems; carbon accounting; design of incentive and disincentive schemes; enabling conditions / governance; law, tenure and rights; forest land allocation; sustainable forest management; validation and standards (auditing); credit issuance, contracts and Emission Reduction Purchase Agreements (ERPA)

- Build stronger networks of peer support between participants addressing key policy, design, social, biodiversity and carbon aspects of REDD+;

- Provide the basis for documentation and dissemination of lessons learnt and good practice approaches required for national REDD+ policy and implementation arrangements.
