Implementation of sustainable land use systems for forest conservation, climate protection (REDD+) and peace-building in Colombia

As of: March 2019

Objective and activities

The project will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions, forest conservation, restoration of degraded landscapes (FLR), improvement of livelihoods in rural areas and support the peace process. The project will impact on the national REDD+ strategy, NDCs and peace-building activities through the establishment of sustainable land use systems (SLUS) - especially agricultural and cattle farming systems. In order to increase efficiency, the systems are tailored to local circumstances and designed on the basis of important value chains. Strategies for up-scaling will be developed to promote the establishment of the most promising land use systems (with monetary and non-monetary incentives). Target groups are farmers living in areas that have priority both in terms of carbon storage and landscape renaturation and are simultaneously affected or threatened by armed conflicts.
