DRC - REDD  (40)

Programmes approved by the National REDD+ Fund

To date the Steering Committee of the National REDD+ Fund has approved eight programmes, together totalling US$ 91 millions in approved funding since the capitalisation of the National REDD+ Fund by CAFI.  

Of these, US$ 60 millions are part of a first, unconditional tranche while the remaining 31 millions are conditionned to programme performance and the evaluation of the milestones of the Letter of Intent. 

These programmes will support the launch of key needed reforms on land use planning and related national land use scheme, a tenure policy to better secure tenure in the rural sector. Approved programmes will also enhance existing actions at the provincial and territorial level in high deforestation REDD+ areas (Mai Ndombé, Oriental and Sud Ubangui) where local communities and territorial entities will be supported to sustainably manage and use resources. Two programmes target civil society and indigenous peoples, and a cross-cutting programme will help the country finalize its national forest monitoring system.  

These programmes, supported by the World Bank, UNDP, FAO and UN-Habitat were appproved following formal calls for proposals, two independent evaluations, and technical reviews by the Technical Comittee.  

An information note (September 2018) on the status of programmes already approved and under development prepared by the FONAREDD Secretariat, is available here
