Restoration and sustainable landscape management in El Salvador

As of: September 2020

Objective and activities

The project will support the Government of El Salvador in aligning public policies and incentives in the land-use sector with national objectives for the Ecosystem and Landscape Restoration Program (PREP) and REDD+. It will also support the Government to design a program of public incentives for the maintenance and expansion of agroforestry and restoration systems that will subsequently be used as one of the means of implementation of the PREP and the country’s forestry policy. The project will i) examine the complementarity of public policies and incentives in the land-use sector and the objectives of the PREP, identifying avenues for their alignment and developing action plans for their implementation; ii) analyze the economics of agroforestry systems in El Salvador and financial and policy barriers to their adoption; and iii) design and implement a pilot package of public incentives to promote the maintenance and expansion of agroforestry systems.
