MYANMAR REDD+ PROGRAMME

Having signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on 11 June 1992 and ratified the convention on 25 November 1994 and the Kyoto Protocol in 2003 as a non-Annex 1 party, Myanmar is fully aware of the causes and potential impacts of climate change. Hence, whilst undertaking political reform and aiming at rapid economic development, Myanmar is striving to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The government of Myanmar has recognized the potential of the REDD+ initiative to contribute to green development by protecting global environmental resources (forest carbon stocks, but also biodiversity), helping to reverse land degradation, helping to improve the livelihoods of the rural poor and aiding adaptation to climate change.

    For many of Myanmar’s poor(26%), Living in rural areas, forests are a source of income. Through REDD+ their capacity to increase incomes from the forests will developed

    Forests are a direct source of food but also support the productivity of aggro-ecosystems

    Many women are leaders of community forest groups, in contrast to the gender situation in most of the rest of society

    Revitalizing forest industries, including the Myanmar Timber Enterprise, can provide word and contribute to economic growth

    Many rural communities are marginalized; empowering them through REDD+ can reduce inequality

    As noted in the previous slide, forests are central to Myanmar’s (I)NDC

    REDD+ will work to protect, restore and enhance sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and revers land degradation and halt biodiversity loss

    The underlying causes of threats to forest are often the same as those leading to conflict, including weak institutions,. This is central to Myanmar’s efforts to resolve internal conflict
