Regional Forest Landscape Restoration in Central America and the Dominican Republic (REDD-Landscape / CCAD)

As of: November 2019

Objective and activities

The project will enable actors in at least 4 SICA countries to (further) develop & implement FLR implementation and financing mechanisms. National FLR strategies, instruments and implementing regulations are introduced, established in law and implemented. Land users and the local population are systematically involved in the implementation process & receive payments from adapted financing mechanisms. Skilled personnel are trained & knowledge & experience will be disseminated regionally through a platform hosted by the Central American Commission for Environment & Development. The EU's Green Development Fund, which is part of the program, provides project funding to national funding mechanisms & finances FLR pilot projects at landscape level. In the pro-cess, additional public and private investments in FLR measures are to be leveraged. The project also supports the establishment of a seed centre in El Salvador to improve the availability of quality seed for FLR implementation.
