REDD+ Readiness Preparation Proposal

The World Bank Forest Carbon Partnership Facility is a leading multi-lateral effort to get countries "ready" to reduce emissions for deforestation and forest degradation and enhance carbon stocks (REDD+). The REDD Readiness Preparation Proposal for Uganda (R-PP) serves as a tool for guiding Uganda's preparations to become ready for REDD+. The development of this proposal was coordinated by the REDD Working Group and supervised by the REDD Steering Committee. The R-PP presents the following priority actions for implementation during 2012-2014: defining institutional arrangements for implementing Uganda's REDD+ Strategy, developing operational procedures and guidelines for REDD+ implementation, elaborating strategies for REDD, preparing a national reference emissions level and reference level, setting out an MRV system and implementing a framework that caters for social and environmental impacts. LTS assisted with a technical peer review of the draft R-PP and elaboration of its content prior to submission to the World Bank. The scope of LTS services included:
  • A review of the completeness, clarity and adequacy of the draft R-PP in meeting the compliance requirements set out by the World Bank
  • Recommending areas for improvement and specific means to fill gaps and where necessary prepare/edit text
  • Incorporation of the findings of the LTS-led Forest Sector Review in the R-PP
  • Responding to queries as necessary after the World Bank has considered the R-PP
