Climate change and REDD+ are mainstreamed into sectoral frameworks and strategies.
This component will support the adoption of a REDD+ strategy that incorporates climate change adaptation and mitigation into sectoral frameworks, policies, activities and investments based on a broadly informative, gender-sensitive and consultative process. It will focus on improving climate governance and the country's readiness for REDD+, consistent with the approach outlined in the REDD Readiness Proposal (R-PP) Burkina Faso submitted to the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility in July 2013.
Participatory planning and management of forests and woodlands is enhanced.
The drivers of deforestation and forest and woodland degradation will be directly targeted by focusing on activities that reduce pressures on forests and woodlands in 26 rural communes and six urban communes in areas outside of targeted classified forests. Resources will be allocated to the management, protection, and rehabilitation of woodlands, timber and non-timber forest resources, for wildlife management, for agro-forestry and alternative livelihoods, and to support small and medium-sized enterprises.
Coordination and information are enhanced, and knowledge is shared.
This component will provide resources to support the implementation of REDD+, the FIP and climate change interventions at the programmatic as well as the project levels. Resources will support the integration of national and project-level initiatives, the mainstreaming of knowledge and lessons learned into further strategic development, as well as the dissemination of lessons learned across international, national, sub-national and local levels.
