Regional Forest Landscape Restoration in Central America and the Dominican Republic (REDD-Landscape / CCAD)
As of: October 2018
Objective and activities
The project will enable actors in at least 4 SICA countries to (further) develop and implement FLR implementation and financing mechanisms. For this purpose, national FLR strategies, instruments and implementing regulations are introduced, established in law and implement-ed. Land users and the local population are systematically involved in the implementation pro-cess and receive payments from adapted financing mechanisms. Skilled personnel are trained and knowledge and experience will be disseminated regionally through a platform hosted by the Central American Commission for Environment and Development (CCAD). The EU's Green Development Fund, which is part of the program, provides project funding to national funding mechanisms and 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 availa-bility of quality seed for FLR implementation.
