Women – both indigenous and non-indigenous – have actively engaged in international and national REDD+ processes to raise their concerns regarding the potential negative impact of REDD+ on women, and to assert their right to equally participate in negotiations, planning and implementation of REDD+.

Indigenous women share many of the basic concerns and needs with their non-indigenous sisters but their situation as women in indigenous societies sets them apart from those who are part of the mainstream society, and their needs and concerns are often different.

Indigenous women’s concerns may thus not be fully addressed, either by indigenous rights advocacy or by women’s rights and gender advocacy. In advocating for the rights of indigenous peoples and for the rights of women, the specific situation and needs of indigenous women therefore need to be taken into account.

This case study focuses on the capacity of local communities to monitor biodiversity and resources in Madagascar, Nicaragua, Philippines and Tanzania. It makes a controlled comparison between local community monitoring and trained scientists’ monitoring and conclude that local and indigenous communities generate similar and equally good outputs as the trained scientists, and are much more cost efficient. The cases suggest that it is fully possible to build a cheap and effective MRV system based on community monitoring of Non-Carbon Benefits.

This case study from Peru illustrates the importance of Non-Carbon Benefits (NCBs) to REDD+, and particularly the effects of land demarcation and titling of indigenous communities, its impact on governance and democracy, on social structures and livelihoods, and on environment and forest cover. The case shows that NCBs are both land tenure rights as well as subsistence and coffee production, illustrating the synergy between rights, carbon and economic benefits for the indigenous population.

Culture Identity and Resources Use Management (CIRUM)

This study takes a closer look at the role of customary law in forest management and conservation in Vietnam. It documents customary law applied in forest resource use and management among Thai and Dzao communities and concludes with a set of recommendations which can contribute to an improvement of forest related laws and policies. The findings and recommendations of this report are particularly relevant in light of the fact that Vietnam is currently busy preparing for REDD – Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation, one of the global initiatives to mitigate climate change under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

This report provides an overview on indigenous peoples in five of REDD+ countries in Asia: Indonesia, Nepal, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand, together with the status of the program’s implementation.
