International experience with REDD+ and national forest funds (English)

International experience with REDD+ and national forest funds (English)

12 September 2013

Vietnam is quickly advancing with REDD+ implementation and expects to be among the first Asian countries to receive results-based payments. In this context, a 2012 decision of the Prime Minister provides for establishing a REDD+ Fund under the Vietnam Forest Protection and Development Fund (VNFF) and the Vietnam Forestry Administration (VNFOREST) has directed relevant agencies to prepare a proposal for such a fund for submission to the Government for approval in 2013. 

The present paper comprises the first of several steps in which LEAF will support the government of Vietnam in establishing a REDD+ Fund. Its purpose is to draw lessons and identify lessons learned from existing experience with national or regional funds with similar purposes to the Viet Nam REDD+ Fund. This includes several nascent REDD+ or climate change-focused funds, but also other forest protection or environmental funds which already have several decades of experience from which to draw.
