The Manual, intends to be a practical, easy to use guide
to enable forestry practitioners and end users to
implement projects on ground and understand and
appreciate all components of REDD+.
REDD+ is expected to rapidly emerge as a means to
incentivize SFM in India.
It discusses the REDD+ architecture and highlights the need for
information on various physical data pertaining to forest
cover, degradation and deforestation rate, socio-economic
dependence on forest stock, etc. and capacity building of
the State Forest Department for REDD+ readiness, and
eventually to set up REDD + projects.
Developing REDD+ in India: Brief Steps
Baseline Development
Socio -Economic assessment to
identify Project Activity
Calculation of Emission
Sequestration Potential
While international architecture and financial arrangements
for REDD+ are being evolved, the SFDs can start capacity
building activities like:
– develop understanding of the REDD+ mechanism
– developing mechanisms to assess forest condition and biodiversity
– ensuring safeguards for the communities
– Training on GIS-related softwares
– Carbon assessment
