Livelihoods and land uses in environmental policy approaches: The case of PES and REDD+ in the Lam Dong Province of VietnamMDPI, 2017This paper explores assumptions about the drivers of forest cover change in a Payments for Environmental Services (PES) and Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) context in the Lam Dong Province in Vietnam.Document
Governance structures established for REDD+ implementation and their adaptation to the institutional and ecological conditions in Equateur province of the DRCNoragric, Department of International Environment and Development Studies, Norwegian University of Life Sciences, 2017This report is one of the outputs of the project “Man and forests – an evaluation of management strategies for reduced deforestation,” which aims to evaluate the different management regimes established to protect forests and improve livelihoods under the so-called REDD+ framework – reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.DocumentWorld Development, 2014This paper presents results from a comparative analysis of environmental income from approximately 8000 households in 24 developing countries collected by research partners in CIFORâs Poverty Environment Network (PEN). Environmental income accounts for 28% of total household income, 77% of which comes from natural forests.DocumentIDS Bulletin, 2017This article looks at the experiences of two areas hit hard by the 2010 mega-floods in Pakistan, one in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and one in Sindh.DocumentIOPscience, 2017The central role of forests in climate change mitigation, as recognized in the Paris agreement, makes it increasingly important to develop and test methods for monitoring and evaluating the carbon effectiveness of REDD+.Document
Projected impacts of climate change on forests in the Brahmaputra, Koshi, and Upper Indus river basinsInternational Centre for Integrated Mountain Development, (ICIMOD), Nepal, 2017Two dynamic global vegetation models (DGVMs), IBIS and LPJ, were used to assess the projected impacts of climate change on forests in terms of the shifts in vegetation types and changes in NPP (net primary productivity) in the mid Brahmaputra, Koshi, and upper Indus river basins.DocumentInternational Centre for Integrated Mountain Development, (ICIMOD), Nepal, 2017Human efforts to address poverty, enhance welfare, and conserve natural resources and the environment often fail because of faulty governance and implementation. Improvements in governance are consistently viewed as means to address the failures of sustainable development and natural resource management.DocumentNorwegian Agency for Development Cooperation - NORAD, 2017This report presents a synthesis of the main findings identified from the external assessments and evaluations carried out since 2009 to date by Norad on Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI).Document
Proceedings of the Symposium Incentivizing Mountain Communities for Ecosystem Services in the Context of a Changing Climate: International Conference on Biodiversity, Climate Change Assessment and Impacts on LivelihoodsInternational Centre for Integrated Mountain Development, (ICIMOD), Nepal, 2017The Context:DocumentInternational Centre for Integrated Mountain Development, (ICIMOD), Nepal, 2017The purpose of this study was to estimate the benefits and costs of reducing deforestation and forest degradation in different landscapes and management regimes in Nepal, and to provide associated opportunity costs of carbon that can be used as inputs for planning the implementation of REDD+ in Nepal.
