PILOT STUDY EXAMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF INVESTMENT IN FOREST AND LANDSCAPE RESTORATION IN RWANDA


Objective and activities

Preliminary Study: Paving the way for future financial participation in the REDD+ mechanism is a vital step in the global development process. This study brought local public and private sector players together to construct, test and promote creative REDD+ investment “packages” through implementation of forest and landscape restoration, based on the integration of relevant REDD+ standards and the creation of favourable investment conditions. These packages were designed to bring multiple social, economic and ecological benefits including but also beyond carbon, and were attractive to local and international private sector investors, with benefits for communities and national ownership. This approach was piloted after the study in two landscapes in Ruanda through the project 15_III_58_RWA_A_Benefit Investment Packages to provide a model for scaling up to other landscapes, countries, the regional level and into international policy.
