Nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) are high on the agenda of the international policy discussion on climate change mitigation. Reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation and the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries (REDD+) is a similarly hotly debated initiative on greenhouse gas mitigation from the forest sector. While both concepts are highly relevant for developing countries, there is lack of clarity on how these relate to each other and the possible implications of integrating them into a coherent national strategy towards climate change mitigation.
This study has been organized through GIZ’s regional knowledge exchange fora, the so-called “Sector Networks” and is based on case studies from countries in the region: Indonesia, Lao PDR, Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam. It analyzes the current situation in these countries with regard to NAMAs and REDD+ and aims to improve the understanding of the relations between the two concepts, develops options how they might be combined and identifies the possible implications of their merging.
