Production Driven Forest Landscape Restoration under REDD+ through Private Sector – Community Partnerships as Asian Regional Learning Exchange

As of: August 2019

Objective and activities

The project develops measures to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Sustainable forest use and nature conservation offer additional benefits for the local population. The co-operation between the private sector and village groups is the central component. The project is integrated into the work of the local administrations of the three partner countries. The strategy of reforestation is based on industrial value chains of durable wood and bamboo products and the replacement of liquefied petroleum by pellets from forest biomass. The improvement of forest management and biodiversity also contributes to food security, thereby helping to adapt to the possible consequences of climate change. Learning experiences of the project, supported by scientific research contribute to the political dialogue.
