Contract Award “Analysis of drivers of deforestation and forest degradation in Malawi (Phase 1)”

With the establishment of a national framework to Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) in Malawi already underway, a detailed workplan has been prepared to ensure Malawi puts in place the necessary building blocks for a REDD+ Readiness Programme.

Understanding proximate and underlying causes of deforestation and forest degradation in Malawi is one of the key building blocks that will inform future actions such as: i) the establishment of reference levels and reference emissions levels; and ii) the categorisation of land use emissions reporting as part of the national greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting system.

As part of this assignment, LTS will be:

  • conducting a meta-analysis of literature on drivers of deforestation and forest degradation;
  • bench marking approaches to conduct a drivers analysis;
  • undertaking an inventory of relevant REDD+ data, assessing and uncatalogued it.
