REDD+ saves the forests and threatens livelihoods of local people

Posted on October 26, 2012 at 5:00pm 8 Comments

Lutfy Abdulah, working for the forest department in Indonesia, modeled forest and land use change scenario in Jambi. His study suggests that implementation of the REDD+ scheme in this area can stop forest degradation but at the same time will threaten the livelihoods of 1 million people!

Hi Marcelo, There is som much happening in Acre. I will get in touch with Cazuza and Fernanda, to see what has happened after their meeting. I really feel we need to include some Acrean learning sites in the network. If you happen to go there, you might talk with them, and see what can be done. I will certainly let you know when I'll be there, but that will surely take some time. I hope by next week we will be able to invite a larger group to become member to our discussion forum, so that our discussion can be upscaled to a higher level. All the best! Cora

Acre will be one of the Amazon states I will visit, but I will be based in Rio. But if you plan a visit to Acre, or if there is any FLR event there, please let me know.

I know both Cazuza for long time and Fernanda, from my research. I interviewed both Pesacre and IUCN, both are fully engaged on the governmental efforts to promote agroforestry and probably very busy if still on the rithm I met them last June. The organisation I worked more closely is the ACS Amazonia (Associacao de Certificacao Socio Participativa - Currently, they work with Participatory Guaratee System to certify organic production of small scalee farmers in the Amazon, more specifically working with the 4 settlement I mentioned before. As far as I perceived, they are the most close to the farmers on the ground. There are also some other possible sites in Indigeneous land, where a great work on landscape restoration has been done mainly by ethnies Ashaninka and Huni Kuim. If you provide with a good structure on how they can get involved as a learning site, I can contact the communities directly.

Cora, please count on me for the brainstorming on how to launch the actual learning process. I look forward for your contact. Marcelo

Hello Cora... I loved the warm welcome and the fact I am the first member 8-)
I have been following the development of the group sionce last year and had the chance to know more about it during some presentations at COP15. Last year I was in Acre for my field research but not during the FLR meeting, which was a pity 8-(
In fact, the video was an outcome from my thesis research in Rio Branco with subsistence agroforestry farmers. I have a very good network in Acre that was strengthened after my research. I know people from the government, indigenous organisation, NGOs, and other grassroots like PESACRE. At the moment I am heading back from Sweden to Brazil (actually, tomorrow) for a 3-month consultancy job with GTA (Amazon Working Group) related to community-based projects on Payment for Environmental Services. I am also participating on the development of a socio-environmental standard for REDD+ in the Amazon region.
As a learning site, I think the group of organic agroforestry farmers I worked with can be a very good match. They live in 4 different settlement projects and sell their food surplus in Rio Branco. One of those settlements (Humaita) is the pioneer on agroforestry, practicing it since 1992 when Arboreto Group (a group from the Acre Federal University) started building capacity for agroforestry. Nowadays, Acre government is using this group as a reference to spread the use of agroforestry as an alternative to slash-and-burn.
My experience in Acre inspired me with a project idea to build competence among young subsistence farmers to restore forest landscape with agroforestry, and I am really enthusiastic to start a pilot project and would appreciate if we could cooperate to make it happen. But, as the message is getting too long, I will keep this for a next message exchange.
Kind regards,
